Friday, March 18 – Philippines
A native ministry sent 10 workers up a steep mountain to strengthen young churches that local missionaries had established in several towns where pagans worship nature gods. Sharing the gospel with some people and providing new Bible lessons to those already in Christ, workers baptized 20 people. In other areas, local missionaries teach Bible school courses, help new Christians start food cart businesses to support themselves and teach the Word of God to children, among other ministries. Donations of $60 or $120 are sought for their monthly expenses so they can focus on God’s call on their lives. Pray workers and new believers will grow in knowledge of the Lord.
