Philippines is a country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific . It is consists of about 7,641 islands. Through the years the Philippines have seen the influence of the Malaysian, Chinese, Spanish, Americans and the Japanese cultures. Religion is a big part of the Filipino culture.
Currently, we are supporting a work in Southern Philippines specifically in the provinces of Maguindanao, Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat. These provinces have a total population of 2.6 Million of which only 0.1% are Evangelicals.
We are doing work for evangelism and church planting in the area. We have a building program for a multi – purpose building for church, parsonage, dormitory and bible school.
Another work that we are involved in is in the outskirts of Subic Bay, Zambales, Luzon among the poor children in an area known as “Shabu Divisoria,” or Crystal Meth market. Involvement in illegal drugs and gambling is very rampant in this place.
Outreach is done through a Feeding program and Bible Study weekly to reach these high-risk children in the area under the leadership of a Pastor. The goal is to offer a better life for these kids. A life lived for Jesus.
