Joel and Marjorie’s Journey:

I, Joel Rodriguez Sena, 42 years old, of Maliangcog Pinamalayan Oriental Mindoro, accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior in June 1991 at Faith Baptist Fundamentalist Church (FBFC). I studied theology in School of Christ International in 2009 where I learned a lot of things about my calling. Indeed God is good and he answers prayers! I met Marjorie Garcia and we got married last October 28, 2011.

I, Marjorie Garcia Sena, 46 years old, of Sagurong, Pili, Camarines Sur, accepted Christ in 1992 in Singapore. I am a former pastor of Word for the World Christian Fellowship in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro from 2002-2005. I then worked for six years as a teacher of a livelihood program under the Program for Alterative Learning System (ALS) in Calapan Oriental Mindoro.

Currently, we just finished attending Companion With the Poor missionary training, where we have been trained to reach the least and lost. It is only by the grace of God and support of our friends, family, and those willing to support ministries to poor people that we are doing what we are doing and plan to move forward in our missionary work!

We pray that you too might be willing to join us in our work and journey of serving the urban poor here in the Philippines!
