Why is your support needed for indigenous pastors in the Philippines?
Small village churches are comprised of around 20-60 people, the majority of whom are children and youth. When these children and youth move out to the big cities and other countries to seek greener pastures and earn a living, they usually give their tithes and offering to their new church. According to one pastor, only one out of one million looks back and remembers the village church that initially planted the spiritual seed in his life as a child.
“Offerings are used for operations of the church.
Most attendees have no definite jobs,
so I sell salted eggs and detergent soaps,
to provide for our basic needs
and the education of our children.
God has used different people
to minister to our need.”
