JULES RYAN S.JONES
Jules Ryan Scott Jones Feb. 16, 1973-March 10, 2008
We were indeed shocked of the passing away of our good brother and co-laborer in God's Kingdom, Jules Ryan S. Jones. On March 10 of the present year while playing basketball with a student and former student against a team in a barangay road which served as their half court, he suffered a heart attack. He was brought to the nearest hospital where he was tried to be revived but didn’t make it.
Bro. Moises Gonzales, a co-preacher, was informed and was still in shock when he called this writer. He then went to the hospital and cried like a baby when he saw Jules body, lifeless. Many of the brothers and sisters who were in the hospital at that time, expressed the same grief. Bro. Ado Moises, even wished, that he’s the one dead and not Jules. (He reasoned out that Jules is doing many things for the Lord).Bro. Doming Camag-anacan, desperately tried to wake up Jules.
Just a week earlier, Jules, Moises and this writer were talking about plans on how the students will spend their fieldwork. (We all teach at the Phil.International Bible Institute-Batangas. He told us of his plan to move to the other town, where the new church is, so that he can do more for the new congregation. . Jules a few years back, texted this writer ( He received a pamphlet where World Bible School and this writer’s mobile number were written) and asked if he can enroll in the World Bible School. He also said that he wants to study in a Bible school. He was told that there is a Bible school where he can enroll. He was also instructed to meet bro.Moises who lives close to his place. He and a friend, Ado Moises, visited bro. Moises, who also encouraged him to enroll at the Bible school in Angeles. On that same year, he enrolled at Phil.Int’l.Bible Institute-Angeles (PIBI-A). and later transferred to PIBI-Olongapo where he graduated just last year.He was in his second year at the Bible school when he started to plant the church in his place, Rosario, Batangas. ( There were just three small congregations in the province). He asked for help of preaching brethren to accomplish this. And the Lord has blessed his effort. Now, there are around 60 adult Christians meeting in Rosario. Last year when some preachers started the Asian Institute of Church Planting and Church Growth, Jules invited the group to have an extension school in Batangas. He was that persuasive that the leaders of the school gave their nod at his proposal. One semester was a sacrifice to the supporters of the school because of the financial restraints they had, but Jules was up to something else. He wants to recruit more students for the second semester. And because of the unavailability of fund, Jules proposed that bro.Charles Smith, director of three branches then of PIBI be asked for financial help..Again, the teachers agreed, and true enough Bro. Smith communicated with this writer saying he will help the school. Then the teachers decided that only ten students could be admitted but Jules again persistently suggested that eigth (8) more be admitted. And that happened. There were eighteen (18) students. (However, only Sixteen (16) of the students survived the semester). Before, it was not understood, why he seemed to be in a hurry in doing things for the Lord. Now, it is understood. He went home so early.At Jules death, some brethren asked what happens to Jules dreams for Batangas and neighboring provinces? (He dreams of a church in every town and city).
This writer’s answer is, Jules left us with sixteen (16) students. They will pursue Jules dreams!Jules will be missed in the school, in the church and in the community.
