STORIES FROM THE SLUMS

Sta. Isabel, Cavite Team -May 2018

Ministry Highlights:
Evangelistic Outreach. We had an evangelistic outreach last May 26, 2018, in partnership with Christian Bible Church of the Philippines ( CBCP). We the gospel to 300 adults and 200 children ages seven to twelve. After the even we went around to do follow-up. Many responded positively and happily that they were able to hear the gospel. They were very grateful. They also received gift packs from CBCP. The good news is that out of this outreach six Bible study groups are formed and will start next week. Glory be to God.

Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS). On May 17-19, 2018, in partnership with JIBC we held a 3-day DVBS. There were 150 kids, aged five to 12 years old who joined. Praise God! The impact of this program is that we are able to gain the trust of the parents. This means that we have plenty of open doors for ministry.

Alternative Learning System (ALS). Oseth Tolentino continues to teach the ALS student in our community. We have 12 consistent ALS students every, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The ALS class is held at Alex Lapide’s house who is one of the students. We include value-formation in this class as well. It’s been a month that this class is on-going. We thank the Lord for this progress.
