Gareth and Malou update March 2023

Our AMEN partner ‘SIKATT’ has many open doors for the gospel including this dental awareness & hygiene class in a Manila school

Greetings from Manila in the Philippines where less than a week remains of our 6 week visit to 3 countries. Unfortunately, we have been unable to visit Batanes island to see Malou’s family due to flight cancellations because of bad weather. However, we have again been blessed by the opportunities we have had as well as being greatly encouraged by our friends’ varied ministries. Their commitment and hard work with often limited resources is remarkable.

Thanks for your friendship and support.

May God bless you all,

Gareth & Malou Bolton
