It's time to find out about Christian missionaries in the Philippines - and what better way to find out than through blogs! Let's find out from their own lips what it's like to live in the Philippines.
The official name of the country is actually Republic of the Philippines.
It's a mountainous country made up of 7107 islands. Here there are an
amazing 79 provinces. About 88 million Filipino people live here, made
up of a number of ethnic groups, including Tagalog, Cebuano and
Ilocano. As you might guess, the languages are varied too. There are
two official languages - Filipino (which is based on Tagalog) and
English. But there are many other dialects used, such as, again,
Tagalog, Cebuano and Ilocano, and five others.
It's not surprising that things like sugarcane, rice and coconuts grow here, but you may have seen a lot of other things in the store from the Philippines. Major industries include assembling electronics, clothing, and various chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Our first Christian missionaries in the Philippines
are the Padens. They arrived in the Philippines in 2006, and have been
blogging since 2007. There are lots of pictures and things to pray
about on their blog.
Also out of the Philippines is KuyaKevin.com. Kevin, along with his wife, serves students in the Philippines and blogs about a variety of topics. He's been a Christian missionary in the Philippines since 2002.
There are many more I could mention. Also on our Philippines blogging list is The Devonshire Files, started in May 2006. They also have a news feed for your feed reader, thedevonshires.blogspot.com/atom.xml. The Devonshires are in Angeles City.
