Pastor Grin and Mrs. Nilda Canapi



Greetings in the most precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

            My name is Peregrino M. Canapi, Pastor of Pilgrim Bible Baptist Church of Baybay, Leyte Philippines. Married to Nilda Ignacio Canapi, she got saved the following year.

            I was saved at the age of 40. I receive the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. A pastor by the name of Pastor Allan Almeda a Baptist pastor shared to me about Jesus and my Saviour. The passage was John 3:16.

            At that time after my conversion, I left my job as a taxi driver in Manila and work as full time Christian worker. I surrendered my life to the Lord. And after my training in Bible school in the year 1989. The Lord through the church sent me to start a mission work in Cuyo, Palawan, Philippines. I work there for 6 years. The Lord blessed our ministry and there were lot of people got saved and were baptized.

            As a full time Pastor, I have been Pastoring since 1989. In 1996 I started another work here in Baybay, Leyte. I have been in Baybay for six fruitful years. The church now has a two-story building, with a regular attendance of 110 people per service. We are praying for a bigger space, because our church building cannot accommodate us any more.

            One of my burdens is to offer free education for the poor people who cannot go to school, because of poverty.

            Right now, we have a Christian school with 130 pupils. We started last 1999. We currently have the following classes:

  • Nursery 1,

  • Nursery 2,

  • Kinder 1,

  • Kinder 2 and

  • Grade 1

            In addition, hopefully by the grace of God this year 2003, our goal well be grade 2.

            We would like to challenge you to adopt one kid and share $10.00 per month. This includes free books. Our curriculum is alpha /omega.

            Another ministry is film showing, a ministry of evangelism. People here in our community are very receptive, you can visit any time of the day a distribute gospel tracts.

            We have also a feeding program. Our people here is living below poverty line. One of my burden is to feed the poor.

            Please feel free to call me. Please be our partner, I am sure that thousand of souls shall be saved.
