Map of the Philippines
The Philippines is an island nation located in Southeast Asia. The Philippines is a country of islands: it is made up of more than 7000 islands. The Philippines is home to over 94 million people and over 90% of these people are considered Christians (80% are Catholics and 10% belong to other denominations). Somewhere between 5% and 10% of the population is Muslim. Many of the Muslims live on the island of Mindanao. The Apostolic Lutheran Church of America began working in the the Philippines in 2006. The work there is under the direction of Pastor Bert Senonis. There are two primary areas we work in: the city of Cagayan de Oro and the Kitcharo area. Both areas are on the island of Mindanao.

KAEMA group
In the Kitcharo area, we work with a group called (KAEMA).

It is the hope of this group to hold an annual convention starting in 2012. We are invited to come and join them and help them arrange classes for pastors, youth, children, etc.

Children Feeding programs
Several of the churches in the Cagayan de Oro area have feeding programs for the children.
