STORIES FROM THE SLUMS

Taniman QC Area- February 2018

Sitio Buhanginan : Some of the mother having conversation with our Team Leader.

Ministry Highlights

Potential Community Area Visits. February 8, 2018 we revisited Sitio Buhanginan to look for another part of the area because the last time we’ve been there the rain poured out so we’re not able to visit all parts of the area. For the second time and the third visit with Atty. Raineer Chu, we saw that the area from Upper to Lower Buhanginan and discovered that they had almost more than five churches of different denominations.

We visited also one area in Taytay, Rizal at the back of SM Taytay. We just went there and found the community as recommended by a taxi driver. We didn’t really know that place so it was hard for us to go there. We were so thankful that one of the tricycle drivers helped us. But we’re not able to go around that place because we had no contact person yet to ask some information about the community. It has been hard for us to find a potential area for Church Planting, we need more prayers and more contact persons as well.

Lastly, we visited one area in Kasiglahan, a relocation site with almost one thousand (1000) families. One of our contacts was the Godfather of our teammate, Ptr. Raymond. The area was headed by the leftist; they didn’t want any religious group to enter in their community because they said that if they were involved in church, the Pastor will not allow the members to participate in the rallies.

Prayer Concerns

1. God’s guidance, protection and will for our new potential community area
2. God’s provision for each team member
3. God’s wisdom for His will in 2018
4. New Area, praying that God will make a great miracle
