Short Term Testimony – Catherine Landgrebe

Hello, my name is Cat Landgrebe.
I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend, and servant. At age eleven I asked Jesus into my heart to be the Lord of my life. It took several years for me to fully let Him capture my heart, but He did and I’m grateful.

In 2005 I met Derek and Amanda Ross; they shared about TLW Philippines and the wonderful work God was doing there. I wanted to be a part of it. In the summer of 2006, at age 17, I flew all the way to the Philippines not knowing a single person along the way. The Rosses treated me like family and I got to experience the great ministry of TLW Philippines. I served for two weeks and knew I wanted to return. The trip simply was not long enough! The next summer I served for two months! The Lord allowed me to share His love with so many young people. I served at a youth camp, training sessions, and engaged in “gospel conversations” anywhere I could. Now, I’m 33 years old, married to the man of my dreams, and seeking to love people as Jesus does.

My husband, Andy, and I are prayerfully considering a short mission trip to the Philippines soon. I am now a mother to three handsome young men. Today, as a young woman who believed in the True Love Waits message, I will testify that it was worth the wait! God’s design for love and relationships is perfect. The challenges of waiting during friendship, courtship and engagement made our wedding night a glorious celebration of the love that God has given us for each other.

Pursue Purity In Christ.

In light of who God is, what Christ has done for me, and who I am in Him, from this day forward I commit myself to Him in the lifelong pursuit of purity. By His grace, I will continually present myself to Him as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.

EVANGELISM: Clearly present the gospel.
DISCIPLESHIP: With indigenous church planters in cities among unreached people.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: Formal and informal training.

Reconciliation and Regeneration are what matter most. There are poor people in the Philippines but the disastrous condition is not overpopulation or economic poverty. The tragedy is spiritual poverty which leads to social poverty.

The assault on the family by the world we live in and problems associated with HIV/AIDS, Abortion, Pre-marital Sex, Suicide, Teen Pregnancy, Homosexuality, Trafficking, Masturbation and Pornography and are all rooted in lust which is sin. The long list of social injustices and problems in this world are only symptoms of the larger problem of sin in sinful men. The solution IS NOT True Love Waits, Counseling or Shelters for the hurting or abandoned; the remedy is Jesus Christ.

Each year the TLWPH Team works with a variety of churches, youth centers and other organizations with one goal which is to launch a Love Revolution lifting Christ above all things. Join us in 2023!
