Preparing the Way

A ministry worker helps clear away undergrowth for a church building under construction that will also serve as a training center for a ministry based on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. Three house churches the ministry has planted plan to consolidate and meet in the building in Surallah, South Cotabato Province. Indigenous evangelists in the area are reaching T'Boli, Antiqueno and Ilonggo tribes, as well as ethnic Ubo, Manuvo and B'laan. As a training center, the building will reduce costs by shortening the distance that new Christians in southern areas will have to travel for instruction. "Lord willing, it will also cater to former Muslims from nearby Maguindanao Province and Sultan Kudarat Province and the rich ethnic and multicultural provinces of South Cotabato and North Cotabato," the ministry director said. "The Lord has heard our prayers for a lot to be donated, and the church building will be completed in January 2016." The ministry seeks funds for completion of the building.
