We returned to Mindanao, Southern Philippines, via the city of Dipolog. It was a joy to conduct the third SOM and to share with them more details of the scope of the SOM work. 50 Pastors and leaders attended the seminar on the person and Work of the Holy Spirit. Over the next couple of months we are involved in a number of schools in different nations. All the teachers are in place and plans are going ahead for the various schools.

Friday 21st Aug, was Graduation Day at Lanao Bible Training Institute in Dawes, Baroy.

What a wonderful celebration, with so many family, friends and Pastors present. Certificates and diplomas were  awarded to 10 students who had completed all 27 modules and assignments, on this residential course using the SOM curriculum from the UK. 

On Mon 31st August we will start again with a new group of students, who have enrolled for the diploma course.  

On 25th September we have planned a full day SOM for pastors and leaders in this area of the province of Lanao del Norte, on the subject of Spiritual warfare.

Thankyou for your interest and prayers.
