Interview by Valerie Agbayani-Malabonga
Attending Balikatan has helped me in my spiritual walk by showing me the importance of evangelizing to others and the importance of support and fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ. I had the privilege of experiencing the IVCF Mission Exposure in the Philippines where it showed me firsthand the day-to-day life of an IVCF staff member. They work hard, travel everywhere, pray without ceasing, and continue to do what the Lord has called them to do, to touch the lives of young people. They have encouraged and inspired me to be a better child of God and to continue to touch the lives of people, especially those who don't know our great God...

Praise & Prayer Reports
by Edna Bargan
From the Prayer of the Valleys:
A Minister's Prayer: "...O Lord of Power and Grace, all hearts are in Thy hands, all events at Thy disposal. Set the seal of Thy Almighty Will upon my ministry..."
1) Balikatan Fellowship Group Leaders - the responsibility of organizing and ministering to a Fellowship Group is a great undertaking with tremendous accountability. May the Lord protect you from the enemy's deceptions, preserve your group and all its members, and provide wisdom to you as the lead example of Christlikeness to them.
2) Balikatan Members without Fellowship Groups - may you experience the deep and profound caring of Balikatan even when you're outside the context of a Fellowship Group. Let us know how best to serve you.
3) IVCF Philippines' Fund Development Manager - For his second year of service, may God direct and mobilize Dionne Ang in thinking of innovative and effective ways to cultivate and nurture the funds campaign needed.
Thank you all for your commitment to prayer!
