The Badjao people build their homes from bamboo, discarded wood and grass. The situation of the Badjao is precarious. They are faced with stunning poverty, social rejection and spiritual darkness. Often, as many as five families share one thatched hut.
The Badjao are unable to send their children to school. Unlike in America, public school in The Philippines and many other nations is not free. In order to send their children to school, they would have to pay tuition, which they cannot afford, and buy required school uniforms, which they cannot afford.
As part of our church planting efforts there, we will also establish a free Christian elementary school so the Badjao kids can learn to read and write and develop the skills to make their way in life. We will also be developing and implementing a feeding program to supplement their poor nutrition.
Please pray for our team as they prepare to step out and do this new work. And please prayerfully consider become a regular monthly supporter to help in this outreach. Even a small amount on a monthly basis becomes a great help, as it established an ongoing resource for the work.
We know that the Badjao people are precious to the Lord. Won't you join with us in the work among them, and become a hand that reaches all the way to the other side of the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
