New chapter in the Philippines

Teaching school children on Mindoro.

Asiel dela Fuente led a group of 10 on a mission trip to the island of Mindoro in June “to share school supplies with our fellow Mangyans. We were able to visit three villages,” Asiel said.

“When we got back to the Metro (Manila) after the climb, we were able to gather participants and non-participants interested in outdoor missions for small-group session. We had our Jump-Off session (on Aug. 18). The goal is to do intentional discipleship through an outdoor approach as well as prepare each participant to do a series of climbing outreaches.

“It’s my joy to share this with you as I had the same experience with C4C on my first climb with the team.”

That was before C4C Philippines went into a state of dormancy because long-time coordinator Ace Concordia was called to plant a church and focus his energies on urban ministry, and no other leader stepped up. Until now, that is.

We are excited to introduce 28-year-old Asiel dela Fuente, a husband, father-to-be, and pastor from Cogeo in the city of Antipolo, province of Rizal, as our new C4C Philippines coordinator.

“We regularly conduct ‘Yellow Cabin Sessions’ once a month and our next session will be on Oct. 7,” said Asiel. The location will be announced. “We will have a mission climb in Mindoro (Sitio Sipit Saburan and Sitio Ambang) the first week of November,” Asiel added. “Details will be discussed at the upcoming Cabin Session.”
