The FMI Philippines Mission Centers are located on the backside of the Island of Mindoro in the South China Sea. In the Philippines poverty and economic stress have doused the fire of the Holy Spirit in many places, and growth has become stagnant in the churches, sending the faith community to its knees. Recent studies show that up to 75 percent of Filipinos consider themselves poor. About 40 percent of the population live on less than $2 a day, and high unemployment rates have forced more than 7 million Filipinos to work in other countries.
This is our sixth year of medical, dental, school supplies, education programs and livelihood projects in this part of the world and are excited about the wonderful things God is doing. Our numbers have expanded rapidly and this year we are concentrating on raising up teachers and leaders to help with the multiplying number of groups.
