The team finished the Kankanaey Bible survey today and have a renewed understanding of the Kankanaey people and their culture. We met many old and new friends from the villages of Tacadang, Badeo, and different parts of Kibungan at the festival and witnessed traditional dances of the Kankanaey.

The day ended with a blessed dinner with Brother Faus and his family, who hosted our stay in Kibungan. To God be the glory for all that's been done! The team goes home tomorrow and fulfills the last mission of C4C Philippines for this year! Madaydayaw si Apo Diyos! Ace Concordia
