September and October were active months of ministry as YWAM Mountain Province hosted the Crossroads Discipleship Training School team from YWAM Salem, Oregon, USA. Below is just a quick glimpse of the many ways the team worked to make God known in Mountain Province.

We are pleased to introduce our new staff member, Harry. Harry completed Tribal Discipleship Training School with YWAM Mountain Province in 2001. He went on to attend Tarlac Bible School and graduated in 2007. He later took courses in Intercultural Studies in Baguio and graduated in 2009. For several years he pastored with Solid Rock Ministries, pioneering ministries in Tabuk, Kalinga; Cervantes, Ilocos Sur; and Bontoc, Mountain Province. His most recent pastoral position was in Namatec, Sabangan, Mountain Province.
Harry and his lovely wife, Alpha, are beginning their ministry with YWAM Mountain Province by serving with our Student Sponsorship Ministry.

The YWAM Mountain Province Student Sponsorship Ministry (SSM) is back in place and the students have been very busy. Besides their studies and discipleship activities in Bontoc, they have been going on regular outreaches to nearby communities as part of their discipleship.
Their two most recent trips have been to Can-eo and Dalican.

For the past several weeks YWAM Mountain Province has been hosting a team from YWAM Balut (Manila). They were here for a portion of their Discipleship Training School outreach.
While in the area, the team ministered in numerous ways and in several villages.
The team started by serving the church of Bontoc as they gathered for a seminar/camp. Churches from Bontoc and surrounding villages participated in this seminar and the team helped by cooking, cleaning, and doing whatever they could to serve.
On one day of the camp, several team members took some time out to join Tom and Lisa at the YWAM Health Clinic. The students practiced taking blood pressure readings and checking blood glucose levels for the 29 patients who attended that day.
Several days were spent in the village of Can-eo. Above, you can see team members performing an interpretive dance at Can-eo Station Church where Rudy and Bridget are pastoring.
While the team was in Can-eo, they accompanied members of Can-eo Station Church on their outreach to Chapyosen. Some of the team led a Bible study with the adults while others taught the children.
After returning from Can-eo, the entire team joined Tom at the Municipal Government for the Monday morning flag ceremony. The team presented a light-hearted, yet meaningful skit and was also able to present the Moral Recovery Program teaching to the entire local government. Afterwards, they joined Mayor Sacgaca in his office and prayed for him.
As they traveled from village to village and while in Bontoc, team members looked for different ways to minister to the people they were around. In churches they taught, sang, performed interpretive dances, and dramas to draw people closer to God. As they walked about, they talked with people and often prayed for their needs and encouragement.
We are thankful for teams that partner with our work here in Mountain Province. This post does not show everything the team did or everywhere they went, but hopefully it shows how God used this team and can use other teams that choose to serve the people of Mountain Province.

[ren–uh-veyt] verb, -vat·ed, -vat·ing, adjective
–verb (used with object)
1. to restore to good condition; make new or as if new again; repair.
2. to reinvigorate; refresh; revive.
Renovate was a word impressed on one of our staff as we considered the future of our facilities and Student Sponsorship Ministry. At our meeting in early May, this concept was affirmed by our entire staff. Therefore, we feel it is best to discontinue renting our current facility and suspend our Student Sponsorship Ministry as we seek the God’s direction to make new and reinvigorate these attributes of our ministry. These changes will take place at the conclusion of the summer semester at the end of May, 2011.
During our time of renovation, YWAM Mountain Province will continue many ministries such as Can-eo Station Church, Moral Recovery Program, YWAM Health Clinic, and hosting outreach teams. We look forward to discovering God’s plans for YWAM Mountain Province.
