YWAM Palawan Update- December 2015
YWAM Puerto Princesa City, Palawan
YWAM PPC, Palawan serves people living in the city dump site, prison inmates and employees, and several tribal communities. This is done through regular visits, student sponsorship and by running a Tagalog DTS once a year in the tribes.
Discipleship Training School:
Although this DTS was intended for tribal communities, it has become a DTS recommended for any Filipino who can communicate in Tagalog. Five students from the tribes and two students from other communities recently graduated last October. The lecture phase is at our tribal base while the outreach this year served many tribal communities, including that of other YWAM frontier work as well as our prison ministry. This Tribal/Tagalog DTS is usually from May to October each year.
We are glad to have our first college graduate from our dump site community. Christian graduated BS in Criminology and just finished taking his Board Exam and PASSED! We have six college students, four from our tribal communities, staying in the house and fully supported by our program. We also support another ten students in the tribe but they do not stay with us.
There are five national prison in Puerto Princesa City, all under Iwahig Prison systems. We regularly minister at the Iwahig Central, one Sunday a month and whenever we have visiting teams. Every time we visit, we provide every aspect of the Sunday service both at the church building, where inmates and employees worship together, then to one or two other higher security barracks. We are welcomed to minister at all five colonies but we don’t have enough manpower at the moment.
Opportunities for involvement:
- Visits us! This gives us a chance to mutually encourage and physically be there and pray with and for each other.
- Tell people about us! The more people know about us and the work we are doing, the more prayer support and partners we can get. So please tell your friends, church or relatives about us.
- Intercede for us. We need all the prayers we can get to continue to expand God’s kingdom here in Palawan.
- Support us Financially
