Last May 21-30, 13 volunteers composed of doctors, nurses, dentists, and other professions gathered together to serve an unreached tribe in Southern Palawan. This year’s theme is “Tipusod” based on 1 John 4:20-21: “If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.” Tipusod means brother in their native tongue.
Praise God for the 86 people whom we counseled during our Medical Mission in Brgy. Ramos. 30 of them professed their faith in Jesus. In Silom-Silom, 43 heard the gospel and 23 received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
All in all we have served:
470 medical consults
180 dental extractions
60 kids in children’s ministry
15 mothers in health class
Praise God that we were also able to build a water filter in the community. No more salty-rusty taste drinking water which seems to be a cause for people to have stomach aches. Praying that when we come back we could build more in other areas of the community.
Continue to pray with us and the ministry among this tribe in partnership with A*, a missionary residing in the community. Great things are yet to be done but we are hopeful that He who began a good work among them will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
We are excited to see how God will transform this community into one who worships Jesus alone.
To all of you who journeyed with us in Operation Samaria 2019: Tipusod, Magsukur! Thank you very much! Thank God for your generosity and prayers for all of us. God continually be glorified.
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
