Visitors from home!

We're excited about the volunteer team arriving this week from our home church, First Baptist Church of Fort Payne, Alabama. This team of 18 youth & adults will arrive in Butuan City on Thursday and will spend the next 9 days sharing God's love throughout the Agusan River Valley. In partnership with the local association of churches they will be: conducting free medical clinics, playing basketball games against local teams, giving dental hygiene demonstrations in local elementary schools, playing volleyball against high school students, sharing their personal testimonies, hosting an association-wide youth rally, performing evangelistic dramas, making & installing water filters, working at Habitat for Humanity project, going door-to-door sharing the Good News, and attending a wedding! Whew!! I think that's enough to fill up their time!

Be praying for this team as they begin traveling Tuesday morning (Alabama time!) and will arrive Thursday noon (Philippine time!) Their schedule will begin Thursday afternoon with a brief orientation followed by the first basketball game. We'll try to post updates & pictures as often as possible.

Pray for:
  • open hearts of the team members to enable them to hear what God is saying to them during their time here,
  • open doors in the villages where the team will be ministering,
  • fertile hearts that are ready to accept what they hear about Christ & His love for them
