Day 26 Iglesia Filipina Independiente – The Philippine Independent Church

The community of Barangay Inawangan in Leyte
Province, Philippines was badly affected by Typhoon
Haiyan in November 2013. ABM’s project funding
has allowed people in the community to work
together to engage in income-generating activities,
in this case raising and selling livestock.

The Lord God is a light and a shield, the Lord gives favour and honour and no good thing will he withhold from those who walk in innocence.
Psalm 84.11


ABM partners with the church’s social outreach arm, the Visayas and Mindanao Regional Office for Development (VIMROD), which serves the needs of people in those two regions of the Philippines. VIMROD envisions a Philippine society where the marginalized sectors have access to resources and participate in building a nation where abundance, joy, justice, peace and freedom reign.


On this day we call to mind our sisters and brothers within the Iglesia Filipina Independiente – the Philippine Independent Church; and so we pray for –

  • the Most Rev Ephraim Fajutagana, Obispo Maximo, and for his staff, clergy and people
  • the Rt Rev Joselito Cruz, the Church’s General Secretary
  • the bishops of the dioceses where ABM partners with VIMROD: the Rt Revs Felixberto L. Calang (Cagayan de Oro) (Chair of the Regional Management Board of VIMROD), Leon Estrella (Antique), Vic Esclamado (Biliran, Leyte and Samar), Alger Loyao (Cebu), Rudy N. Juliada (Libertad), Ephraim Fajutagana (Negros Oriental and Siquijor) and Pablo Jarantilla (Ozamis)
  • the development staff, particularly Clagel Nellas, Executive Director, and Analie Tandog, Accountant


Holy God, maker of earth and heaven, we give you thanks for the life and ministries of the Philippine Independent Church. Give them your inner peace that they may be united in mission to spread your gospel of redemption and salvation. Amen.
