Following are some of Bill's thoughts: "Recently my co-worker and I visited Palawan, Philippines. We were taken around by the OM Field Leader, Sally Ababa and her uncle Victor, seeing, feeling, and tasting the “full arc of the story” when it comes to the apostolic church planting that is happening here amongst the local tribal peoples; seeing first-hand the crucial role holistic mission plays in bringing transformation by planting VCJFs (Vibrant Communities of Jesus Followers) amongst the least reached.
We started by seeing some awesome 'fruit': Ethnos, a Tribal Missions Training Center of OM Philippines run by Pastor Philip and his wife, Levy. People come to grow in their knowledge of the Word, understanding of their faith, and the tribal ways so that they can effectively reach out and hopefully plant churches among them. Done in a holistic manner which involves the whole community, lives are impacted and transformed as the entire community is uplifted.
