Pastor Filma is a volunteer teacher for the children’s ministry program happening through public schools in the Philippines. He is so very grateful for your steady support, even as the program underwent many changes.

He is eager to share news about this school year, once again started either online or outside. Relying on God’s leading, volunteers are adapting to the new “normal” way of education as they reach more and more students in their areas.

“One thing I am thankful to the Lord for is the house church that grew during the pandemic. It started with a few of our students a few months before the pandemic. Every week we had class under the trees. When the pandemic hit, it slowed down for the first few months. But when restrictions loosened a little bit and we continued, many parents asked if they could join in!”

The class has grown into a church now! Our students come every Sunday, many of them with their parents.”

“Many things have been on hold during the pandemic, but children continue to grow and mature — we need to reach out to this generation while we still have time!”

You provided the Bibles and programs for these children.
