Sunday, March 4

It’s 5:30 p.m. and more patients are coming to see Doc Joja. We were all blessed by the community’s response to our presence here. Many young people attended our youth program. Bibles were handed out to pastors from remote churches in Kibungan. School supplies were given to the school administrators. We performed the Joseph play once more during the medical mission with many Kankanaey young and old hearing the message of God's faithfulness. Thankful to God for this successful mission climb!

Nearing Dalipey, the team was welcomed on the trail by Caroline Alacdis, whose happiness cannot be contained at the return of C4C. Caroline is the young woman we are prayerfully considering sending to Bible college in Manila. She desires to be a missionary.

The last members of the team arrived safely in Dalipey at 1845 hours. It was a long day of trekking and the team will get some rest and pray after dinner to prepare for tomorrow's program! To God be the glory for a great day!

The team shared about the life of Joseph during the worship and Bible study in preparation for tomorrow's climb. Everyone shared personal testimonies on how God had seen them through the darkest moments of their lives. This message of hope is what we hope to bring to the people of Dalipey. The adventure starts Saturday as the team departs at 5 a.m. to hike toward Dalipey!

– Talking to Caroline about Bible School.
– Establishing host families for next year’s longer mission schedule.
–Talking to Kolbel about our efforts to recirculate the Kankanaey Bible.
