New Life Christian Church
New Life Christian Church (NLCC), lead by Pastor Luis Escapalao, is a ministry in the Philippines that focuses on church planting across different regions in the Philippines. Empowered by the Lord, NLCC has been able to plant churches in places like Borongan (Eastern Samar) and Ajuy (Iloilo).
Recently, GFC's support was focused more on helping NLCC recover from the destruction of super storm Yolanda. The storm had wiped out the NLCC's church building in Ajuy, Iloilo. GFC has been helping rebuild their church building.as well as sent releif goods gathered here in Virginia for our brethren in NLCC who were affected by Yolanda.
