Update from Palawan

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.

Missions flows from JOY in God!

Posted originally at Knowing God Through His Word…Day by Day (

Isaiah 12:3-5  With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day:

“Give thanks to the Lord,
 call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that his name is exalted.

Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously;
let this be made known in all the earth.

Swinging bridgeMissions flows from JOY in God, the Source of Living Water and eternal life, according to Isaiah, and RESULTS in more  JOY in God, as it is spread!    Here we see that those who have found their joy and satisfaction in God, in Jesus Christ, will be the kind of people that:

  1. Give thanks to God
  2. Call on His name (trust in His character, His reputation, His reknown)
  3. Tell  of what He has done, and in doing so, exalt (lift up) His name (His character, His reputation, His reknown)–and they not only tell, they SING for joy!

Who do they tell?  Where do they sing?  Why do they do this? 

Among the peoples, in all the earth, for the joy and glory of God…MISSIONS!
