Ministry Description

Bambie and I are under Local Church Ministries of Word of Life Philippines based in the Island of Cebu. It is located in Visayas region in central part of the Philippines. We help local churches in the area of evangelism and discipleship. A biblical program called Bible Clubs is introduced to help them in their youth ministry. It is done by training youth leaders to disciple their teens and eventually those teens will disciple others as well. We also do blueprint for evangelism trainings were we teach teens how to share their faith one on one or in public arenas. We also teach seminars that talk about current issues that teens are facing today. We are now building relationship with Pastors and leaders for potential future ministries.

About Jesil

It was March 26, 1996, in our Sunday school class that I trusted Christ as my personal Savior. Our church was using the Word of Life Bible Club youth program and God used that to help me grow in my walk with the Lord. I was also challenged to study at the Word of Life Bible Institute. After my 4 years of study, God opened a ministry opportunity for me in the “Visayas Region” of the Philippines. The main islands that I am ministering to are Cebu, Bohol, and Leyte. My task is to help local churches by introducing the very same Biblical program that molded me in my teenage years. I, with my wife Bambie and our little son Asaph are now in Cebu City, after God moved us from Tacloban through the strongest storm in history.


About Bambie

I grew up in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines and got saved when I was 11 years old. Being a missionary has always been on my mind ever since I was a child; little did I know that God was leading me in that direction. The principal in the school where I worked encouraged me to study in Word of Life Bible Institute. After a year, I ministered under the camping ministry of Word of Life Philippines for 3 years. Then God move me to Thailand to help in missions for little a while before the Lord led me back to the Philippines. I got married to Jesil on September 8, 2012. We are now serving as Bible Club Missionaries in the central area of the Philippines called the “Visayas Region” together with our son Asaph.


And say to Archippus, "take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it." Colossians 4:17
