The missions in the Philippines were founded in the 1980’s. The original school campus and church in Alae was begun then and they both continue to thrive and grow today. Of course, with COVID 19, the schooling has had to be modified to comply with local conditions and rules. When the Tibbitts left to expand the ministry into other nations, there were over 50 affiliated churches and ministries.
There continue to be numerous churches and ministries being served and grown up under the umbrella of Bridge Ministries, Inc. The main hubs of ministry are in the Cagayan de Oro City and Cotabato regions. Each of these areas continue to expand and serve their communities with weekly feeding programs, youth ministries, outreach services, and church services. Several of the ministries are successfully reaching out to the Muslim communities as well.
We will update with pictures and needs of each community so that you can see what the prayer needs and the physical needs of the churches are.
Update July 2021:
In the Philippines, they have been on another COVID-19 lockdown for the month of June with essential exceptions. The feeding of the village, which was relocated due to the earthquakes and subsequent landslides, has continued through the lockdown. We are in need of funds to continue this assistance and outreach.
The children in Alae, Ministry of Bridge Christian School, are getting ready to hold their 34th nursery/kindergarten commencement program. It has been a very difficult year with the complications of COVID-19, but thanks to the faithfulness of the teachers and staff, there is a graduating class.
