MINDANAO, Philippines—In the Philippine Islands is a large church in the southern island of Mindanao. Bethel Baptist Church receives Sunday School materials from Gospel Literature Services, and God continues to strengthen that congregation of Christians.

One couple in that church has started a children’s ministry in the countryside, using VBS materials from GLS. The children, many from Muslim families, walk for as long as two hours to attend. Since they come a long way, they come in the morning, eat lunch, and go home in the afternoon.
