Update from Palawan

04 May

VVMI Board Chair and dentist, Dr. Jim N and his wife, Mary, just returned from an exciting short-term trip serving as Mission Volunteers to Palawan Province, Philippines. They were blessed to be able to serve at 4 clinics with the first medical outreach partnership team to that area. Jim and Mary – the only non-Filipinos on the team – worked with 25 to 30 others that included members of VVM, DIADEM (a Filipino holistic ministry), and VVM-mobilized local churches. The team experienced many answers to prayer and report that a total of 3,257 contacts were made. We praise God for the following people that were served and for the spiritual commitments:

  • General medical patients  1,909
  • Dental patients- 437 for extractions and 52 for restorations
  • Surgical- 237
  • Eye glasses- 622;
  • Eye Consultations- 79
  • Prayed to receive Christ- 1,953
  • Committed to Home Bible Study- 1,207
  • Recommitted their life to Christ- 816
  • Bible Distribution- 750

Please pray for the follow-up by local pastors and churches, which will include Bible studies, worship services, home visits and vernacular film showings.
