Our dear listeners, we just received the statistics for our first month of ministry here at Sermon Audio and we were amazed at what we saw. The first ten sermons have been listened to more than 300 times in 26 US states (with California coming in as number 1; no surpise there!) and 20 countries around the world. Outside the US, the Philippines came out on top with Canada coming in second. Even more surprising there are many of you from the Middle East and Europe and even in such far flung areas as Cayman Islands.
When we started this ministry, we didn't know how it will be received. Now we know-- and how we praise God for allowing us to reach out to you in all corners of the globe. With 10 million Filipinos scattered all over the planet, our desire is minister to you through the faithful preaching of God's Word.
So our dear listeners, we welcome all of you to the TBC pulpit. Our prayer is that wherever you maybe, God's grace will reach you.
Soli Deo gloria!
PS We will upload new sermons every month-- watch out for them!

Summer has definitely arrived for us here in the Philippines (typically from March to May). For many of us, it brings back lots of memories-- of school vacations, beach outings, family reunions, etc. The heat may be oppressive but summer creates...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
Pro 26:24 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips and harbors deceit in his heart; 25 when he speaks graciously, believe him not, for there are seven abominations in his heart; 26 though his hatred be covered with deception, his...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
I am blessed to have led both a religious group (our church) and secular organizations (academic and research) in the past three decades. One of the things I emphasize in these organizations is that we are a team. I still remember the time when...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
Here comes December! This month holds a special place for all us. Whatever the year had brought us, we always welcome this month. If the previous months brought triumphs, we can look back with pleasure. If they had been full of struggles, then we...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
The alarm sounded at exactly 6:30am last Sunday. I immediately jumped out of bed ready for a full day of preaching ministry. Not wanting to wake up my wife Haydee, I turned off the alarm at once. As is my habit, I went to the bathroom and drank...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
As I write this in my iPad, I have been in line for two hours to get my birth and marriage certificates (for Schengen visa application). And the end is not in sight. I arrived at 1pm in the statistics office somewhere in Manila confronted by a...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
How valuable is our thumb? I learned it the hard way two weeks ago. While holding a cup of coffee on my left hand, with the right hand I closed the door of our car. In a split second I felt an excruciating pain in my right hand thumb. Its hard to...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
