Michael and Melanie Waddell are CBM Global Field Staff in Roxas City, Capiz, Philippines. They serve to form Christian discipleship movements in the context of the marketplace. They also work with local partners in capacity building to alleviate poverty and provide assistance to the marginalized through integral mission. Please pray for Marketplace Ministries Initiatives with partner, Kabuganaan Philippines Ministries (KPM) – for Food for Life and the construction of a structure where chemical free farm inputs will be produced; for BUGANA Livelihood Centre, a new initiative that will help provide livelihood for vulnerable women and youth. Please pray for those affected by the recent natural calamities that have ravaged the Philippines, for provision, safety, security and comfort. Pray also for the Waddells, as they spend their fourth Christmas away from loved ones in Canada.
