Although it has been a challenging year for Libas Child Care Centre in the Philippines, we praise God for answered prayer this past month. After a prolonged search for a new teacher to serve in this community, Celeste Martinez has accepted the position. Celeste, a university student, has a deep passion and burden for underprivileged children. “Our concern was that there were 20 children connected to the centre who were being left behind by the lack of a teacher,” Duane and Carin Guthrie, CBM Field Staff in the Philippines, shared in a ministry update. “After two weeks of her working with the centre, Celeste’s classroom has just over 40 students. This is an amazing accomplishment, and we are dancing with joy at God’s provision, asking Him to continue leading us as we work together to reach out to this community.
