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 »

Climbing For Christ Philippines will be doing an exploratory climb to the village of Dalipey in the mountains of Kibungan to meet the people there for the first time. This climb was confirmed by the Lord when we ran into two teachers from this village in September 2010. In our conversation with them, they had heard of what we had done for the village of Tacadang and asked us if it was possible for us to visit their village also. So C4C Philippines is currently forming a team that will train together to go and climb to this mountain village Feb. 7-12. We are also in the midst of gathering Bible... Read more »
