Time in the Philippines

In November Mike visited the OM team in the Philippines for their staff retreat and the 20 year celebration of OM Philippines. He was encouraged to hear the story of the development of the work. As well as training and providing opportunities for the church to send Filipinos into overseas mission, the team has developed community transforming projects among the marginalized urban poor in Cebu and Manila. The work is led by Jun Diaz, and he gives leadership to a national team with a few expatriates serving under the guidance of local leaders. As a mission they work closely with local Churches to see God's people in the Philippines empowered to make a difference in the quality of life of the poor.
