On Palawan, whenever you see a pile of flip-flops outside a door, you know something is happening inside. Come on in and we’ll tell you about it…
Palawano Youth Leaders Seminar
We invited ten key youth leaders, and 18 came (that’s good math in the world of discipleship).
THEY SANG their hearts our in times of worship (in three different languages, including a song they wrote.)
THEY LISTENED attentively for two whole days while Bill taught through 2 Timothy, challenging them to make wise decisions and to use their lives to serve God, starting now while they are young.
THEY SHARED how some are being mocked at school by kids of other religions.
THEY CRIED about their parents’ spiritual needs and the need for unity in the Palawano church.
THEY THANKED us for coming, and wrote thank-you letters to the ones who underwrote the seminar.
THEY CHEERED when we told them we would come back next year and do it again.
Who Are These Kids?
Their average age was 18-19. Among the Palawanos, most kids in this group are our “grandchildren.” When we first moved to the village in 1983, their parents were 3 or 4 years old–they were our daughter’s best friends and used to play in our house.
More importantly, they want to use their lives for Christ. They want to finish school and become school teachers back among their people, to be clinic workers and midwives and gospel preachers and pastors.
They are serious about their faith.
Thank you for praying and for supporting our ministry to make this kind of event possible!
