CHRISTIAN MISSION IN THE FAR EAST
For nearly 60 years, The Christian Mission in the Far East has ministered to the spiritual and physical needs of people in 24 provinces in the Philippines. The mission oversees 196 churches of varying size. Primary functions of the mission include evangelism, discipling, church planting, and training of pastors and church workers. The mission operates Bible Schools that prepare men and women for teaching, work in mission fields, youth ministries, evangelism work, and pastoral ministry. Many of the graduates now serve the CMFE in various ways and have taken key leadership positions within the mission.
Orphanages, called Gethsemane Children’s Homes are in operation in the Philippines. The children in these homes have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Christ and live productive lives with house parents. Most of the children have been referred for long-term care (until they finish college). The atmosphere in these homes approximates that of a well-rounded family. The mission is also well known for providing pre-schools, elementary, and mission that educate the less fortunate in remote areas where no access to education would otherwise be unavailable.
For almost six years now, CMFE has worked to develop farms to aid in this ministry. With the help of the Missionary Society and the proceeds of these farms, the ministry has been sustained. Due to a shortage of rice in the Philippines, these farms have become crucial. Rev. Jaime A. Julian, leader of CMFE, writes “Prayer is God’s mighty force in solving our problems. Prayer and action go hand in hand. Through prayer, God guides our teamwork, and diligent efforts to carry out His work.”
