EVANGELISM & DISCIPLESHIP
Bibles and Christian Literarture
Effective Bible Study requires Bibles—in our case, hundreds of them. Bringing the gospel to children halfway around the world in the Philippines can be a difficult task without the right equipment. Some of our older students can read, write, and speak English; however, most cannot. As such, in addition to tagalog Bibles— which get used more than just about anything else in the learning center— we aim to provide our team with field-tested, organized, group Bible study units that are relevant and exciting for our students.

"I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will semd down showers in season; there will showers of blessing."
Showers of Blessings is a neighborhood outreach initiative conducted in partnership with a local church in Payatas. During this quarterly event, our team goes out into the crowded neighborhoods of Payatas to gather as many kids as possible, that they may participate in an all-day fellowship filled with skits, games, food, Bible study, and of course, soapy showers! Wholesome meals and clean, sanitary showers are the hallmark of this ministry, but spiritual nourishment is the primary objective. Most participants are children ages 5 to 8, however youth and adults have also participated on occasion. Despite poor sanitation and hygiene standards in Payatas, our volunteers strive to uphold the highest standards of safety and cleanliness for themselves and all who participate. Clean towels, soap/ shampoo, plates and cups, garbage containers/bags, and hair razors are items personally requested by our team. Some bigger aspirations for this effort include securing a water truck of our own to enable our team to penetrate deeper into the community and a digital camera to better document these exciting events!
