We are planning on working with a church plant in Tacloban City on the island of Leyte with pastor Emil from U-Turn for Christ. For the first 6 days we will do discipleship and encouragement of believers as well as evangelistic outreaches to unbelievers in the Tacloban area. We will work together with U-Turn for Christ for a pastors conference and make improvements on pastor Emil’s home. He was just married in June 2016 to B- Ann.
The house and Church in Tacloban are located on the family property of a sister from our church, Anita Frame.
Afterward we will travel to the island of Bohol for 4 days where a couple from our church, Reggie and Mary Jane Tamoro live and will be joined by our Filipino brother Arnold Bilion whom we are sponsoring in Bible College. Arnold is preparing for full time ministry and we will investigate the opportunities and possible locations for where the Lord will open the door for the next church plant. The primary target people are the Badjao who are know as “Sea Gypsies” because they build their homes on stilts over the water. Arnold’s wife Melissa is Badjao.
