CBM Field Staff Michael and Melanie Waddell are based in the Philippines. The Waddells serve alongside CBM colleagues and partners in the area of Marketplace Ministry. They also work with local partners who serve the poor and marginalized in various facets of Integral Mission – through capacity building that models humility, love, compassion and integrity. 

Here are a few specific prayer items from the Waddells: 

  • Please pray for our family as we adjust to life in a new city and region of the Philippines.  There are several differences in language, culture and practices here in Capiz province that we are growing accustom to. 
  • Please pray for our children as they continue to adjust to homeschooling. Please pray that we will know how best to support and encourage our children. 
  • Please pray for us as we seek a language tutor that can assist us with learning the Ilonggo language. 
  • Please pray for Kabuganaan Philippines Ministries and the growing partnership with Canadian Baptist Ministries. 

“We are so thankful for the faithful prayers of so many churches and individuals back in Canada,” shared the Waddells. “Without your prayers we would surely not be able to sustain our life and ministry here in the Philippines. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
