Three families in different communities of a language community in the southern Philippines have experienced severe trials after receiving the New Testament and believing the Good News about Christ. In two of the three communities, reading groups were formed where the Holy Spirit was their only teacher, but over the past two years they have been decimated by one medical crisis after another. Various illnesses have claimed twelve lives in the past year alone. In addition, one was bitten by a shark, two have been shot, and others have been in and out of the hospital dozens of times. So far their faith has held strong, and they continue to read the New Testament together. Pray that God will hold them through their trials so that their faith, knowledge and experience of His grace will grow, and that they will be a testimony to those around them. May the Word continue to spread throughout this language group.
