LEGACY is all about PEOPLE (part 5)
The Philippines is has been on the LEGACY of Worship, Int'l radar since 1978. Bill first went to the Philippines at the young age of 17 years old. He had just graduated from high school when asked to go with an American missionary to Baguio City, the summer capitol of the Philippines in the northern part of the main island, Luzon. The missionary had asked Bill to go for three months during the summer.
Being born into a military family made it easier for Bill to adjust to the sights and sounds of a new culture. The call and destiny of God went swiftly into action!
Upon Bill's return, he and Lynda married in the Spring of 1979 and, by the Fall of that year, they returned to Central Luzon with Evangelists Jimmy and Fran Jones (and daughter Jana) to spend 3 months working conducting outdoor crusades in the cities of Santa Rita and Lubao (in the Pampanga Province), and Bamban (in the Tarlac Province). By the way, 2 of the 3 churches are still thriving!
Helping with the crusades began a life-long relationship with Carlito and Estela Villanueva, the Bishop and First Lady of Calvary Temple Ministries, Int'l based in Angeles City. Now, this relationship spans more than 4 decades.
Today, Bishop and Mrs. Villanueva watch over more then 100 churches in the Philippines, as well as a few other countries as well!
LEGACY of Worship, Int'l has also touched Filipino churches in the USA and Canada, because of their relationship with Bishop Villanueva. In California, this is in Haywood, Vallejo, South San Francisco, Stockton, and Fresno. In Illinois, this is in Skokie, Bolingbrook, Zion, and Chicago. In New York, this is in Staten Island, and Queens...just to name a few churches.
