Philippines Report

On a recent missionary trip to Southern Mindanao, Philippines, Brother Sammy Durano and his wife Sister Marina traveled to Kialat. They originally began by motorcycle until they were unable to go any further, at which time they changed to horseback to complete the rest of their journey.
23. We will cross again 24 rivers to reach the seashore
During this trip, they crossed 69 rivers; some of which are extremely dangerous should a sudden flood occur. Even through muddy roads and difficult situations, they arrived safely in Barangay, Kialat. Brother Sammy spoke and they enjoyed services with Brother Orlando Gapas, the host pastor, his congregation, and other visiting ministers from various denominations. The duration of their stay was three days and four nights, after which they had to return through those 69 rivers by foot, as there was no horse to take them back. This lasted for seven hours before they arrived at another church at Bogbog, Big Margus, Glan on Saturday June 26, 2010.
