Malong of the Philippines

(mah-LONG) – Two decades ago, the thought of a local church reaching out to the Malong people was unthought of due to the long history of civil conflict. Currently, several local gatherings have adopted Malong communities and are traveling twice a month to have a Bible study, help with home gardening, bring medicines, and show unconditional love to this tribe that has been seen in the past as the enemy. There is a desire to help send out workers to live among the Malong in their communities as this would provide opportunities for sharing, discipleship, and helping with community development. It’s a new day! Pray that more local churches will want to be a part of what God is doing to bring the message of hope to the Malong people.
