Macol is one of the villages we go into here in the mountains. It is about an hour drive and we cross rivers and drive along the mountainside along the river.
It is a BEAUTIFUL drive, but as beautiful as the drive is, it doesn’t come close to comparing to the beauty of the people there! The people are amazing and they have absolutely won my heart!
Every week when I get there these two boys greet me by saying “Hi Ate Brittany, My name is Brittany I am 27 years old.” They love reminding me that they haven’t forgotten who I am!
This week I had the honor and privilege of being there as they gave their lives to Jesus. One sitting on my left, the other holding my hand, and and leaning against me on my right! My heart could not have felt more full or alive!!
I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who are partnering with me in changing lives here in the Philippines!
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of young people, just like this one here!! I love you guys and thank you for all you do and for your obedience to Christ!
Here are some of the faces of the kids I get to love on and play with every week in Macol. Please pray that they would continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus, and for protection over their lives!
*Please pray we can find someone to teach me the language, and that I am able to learn it quickly!
*Please pray for the people in the villages we are doing outreach in. (Tikatig, Macol, Malawi, and Malacsom)
*Please pray for me as I continue to transition into life here

About Brittany Valdivia
My heart is to love the unlovable, see the broken and hurting restored, and bring hope to the hurting and hopeless.
I just recently returned from working in the Philippines for 3 months where I spent some time working with young girls who have been trafficked, as well as some time with the people who live in the mountains. I loved my time there and am currently building a partnership team so that I can return.
