Mission Moments: Philippines

A bend in the road By Ace Concordia I remember a trail named “the Road of Patience.” We would have to walk this trail on our way home from missions in Kibungan whenever we exited into the province of La Union. The trail was given that name because after being on mission it was the last long hike before getting a ride that would bring us all back home. Everyone on the team would be running on fumes. We would be dragging our legs to finish this last part of the mission. This trail was littered with rocks from landslides. It was constantly twisting and turning. At every turn... Read more »

On Thursday, Damson receives the money, buys the food, and distributes it. At C4C Canada’s third Annual Meeting on Saturday, Nov. 26 in Coleman, AB, Board member Aaron Hemphill talked... Read more »
