Maximizing Opportunities, Minimizing Obstacles
Over thirty years ago, Gerry and Sue Holloway began a work among the Filipino people in Manila, Philippines. What began as a Bible study in their home with 40 people has grown into an international work reaching thousands throughout Asia and beyond. With a desire to win souls for the Lord, Dr. Holloway's approach has been to "Maximize the Opportunities and Minimize the Obstacles". To this end, Word for the World Christian Fellowship began to send Filipino missionaries to Filipino communities thoughout Asia, Europe and the United States. Following the directions of our Lord in Acts 1:8, WWCF started with their Samaria - Hong Kong. After establishing a fellowship for Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong, WWCF spread throughout Asia, the Middle East and the US.
Last November, Word for the World Christian Fellowship celebrated it's 30th anniversary. As of the time of that celebration, WWCF Missions has been established in some 20 different countries world-wide. Their approach is simple - the Filipino people are among the most prevalent domestic workers worldwide and Word for the World is known as a "Filipino ministry". So as Filipinos bring their culture and food to their adoptive cities, so too they bring their way of worship. And when enough believers meet in one place, a fellowship is born - Word for the World Christian Fellowship.
So join us on our journey to bring God's Word to a hurting world. Come see Asia through our eyes and experience the power of God in a new and dynamic way!

"How then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one in whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? " Romans 10:14-15 (NIV)
