Rowel was bullied, mocked and abused as a desperately poor child in the Philippines. In a drunken rage, his father almost killed him with a machete.
Rowel started attending the Compassion Child Development Center in his community. Soon after this he was teaching Bible classes, singing with the praise and worship team, and was awarded a Leadership Development Scholarship to attend college.
While in college, Rowel accepted Christ. Switching his degree from accounting, he became the first Leadership Development Program student to take pastoral courses at a Bible seminary.
Your donations enable students like Rowel to realize their potential and make a positive impact on their families, friends, and surrounding communities!
