STORIES FROM THE SLUMS

Sta. Isabel, Cavite Team -July 2018

Bible Study: Friday 4PM

Ministry Highlights:

A. Alternative Learning System (ALS)
Praise God! This month, aside from our existing ALS class we were able to open a new ALS class, composing of 8 mothers from the community. We are conducting the classes in one of the house of Ate Bernadeth who is a member of our Bible study groups. The present ALS class continues to grow with 12 students, who actively participate in every class. There are also 4 youth, who go to regular schools in different grades but attend our ALS class because they wanted to learn more and they also take it as their review outside the school.

B. Bible Studies
Our Bible Studies in the community continue to increase in number and grow in the Word of God. This month we opened another Bibles study group, in which 12 people attend. It is exciting to see people grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

C. Due to the lingering flood, some of the people got acnes on their feet and some skin diseases. We praise the Lord that we were able to give to some people a cream that helped their skin infections
