Philippines: Gocons 9-2021
In December 1992, I was still single and on a church planting team with SEND International in Cabanatuan City with Doug/Lynn Harder and Larry/Joyce Thiessen. We began a Bible study in a small Catholic chapel and at our first meeting, 25 attended, mostly men! Afterwards, we discovered that 15 of them were Muslim, and I, a single woman, had been the teacher! Because of that, we decided it would be best for Doug to lead the study. The next week, however, the numbers had dwindled significantly. But one family, the Medinas, continued to attend and eventually we moved the study to their home behind the chapel and I became the teacher. Nanay Baby, her husband and their 6 children came to know the Lord and were in our first baptism.
