WHERE IS CEBU?

Cebu is an island in The Philippines. Of all the 7,000 islands that

make up the Philippines, the island of Cebu ranks 9th in size. It is a bit larger than the tiny state of Rhode Island. There are however, about two million people living in this small Mea. Of all the provinces in the Philippines, Cebu is the most thickly popxilated. Its chief city is Cebu
City, with a population of more than 200,000. HISTORY OF THE FIELD In 1941, the Vemon Newland and Ray Carlson families arrived in

Cebu and evangelized until they were interned by the Japanese for three years. At the conclusion of World War II the Newlands returned to the United States. The Ray Carlson family remained working in the area of
Cebu until 1954, at which time they too came back to this country.

lAiss Betty Yarbrough, a graduate of Atlanta Christian College, came in November of 1952 to strengthen the teaching staff of the Cebu Bible Seminary. She is now on furlough in the United States taking a course in
special nurses' training. Brother and Sister Elston Knight arrived .on the field in August of

1953. They helped in general evangelistic work as well as in the Semi nary before leaving the Islands April 22, 1956.
OUR TARGET DATE FOR SAILING

We are planning, the Lord willing, to sail from the West Coast on December 1, 1956, expecting to arrive in Manila before Christmas.
WHY GO TO CEBU?

1. We are going to Cebu because the Lord in His Word has instructed us to take the Gospel "into all the world." As yet there are many in the Philippines who have not heard the Gospel of Christ even for the first time. We are going in obedience to our Lord's command. 2. We are going to the mission field of Cebu because we have received
the "Macedonian call.. .come over and help us."Thelast missionaty has left Cebu. As far as we are concerned, Unless We Co, There Will Be No One To Fill In This Gap and continue the work there. There are over 40 New Testament churches in the area, plus one Bible Seminary.

Without doctrinal leadership, they might well suffer or perish. Someone


is needed to teach in the Cebu Bible Seminary. We see in Cebu an op

portunity to make our life count the most for the Lord. 3. We are going to the mission field of Cebu because we believe that this represents the front lines in the ideological warfare between the
free world and communism! Communism is atheistic and godless. It threatens to close the door to missions unless Christians rise up and

meet it. We are going to teach the people about Christ and the freedom
that comes to the individual through Him.

4. Last, but not at all least, we go because we know the peace and joy that comes from a complete surrender to Christ and the acceptance

of Him as our Savior. WE WANT OTHERS TO KNOW THIS JOY i^SO.


There are millions in this far off country who are lost in the superstitions and fears of heathen cults and sects. We go to tell them of their Savior.

SUGGESTED WAYS THAT YOU CAN HELP US Cebu Bible Seminary. My primary responsibility will be the direct ing of the Cebu Bible Seminary, a Bible college for the training of a native ministry. At present, the school has about 20 students. Many of them need financial help iri order to come to school. The school needs support so that it may adequately train Md house these students.

We are praying that at least 20 Christian groups will see this need and pledge $10 a month to the support and expansion of the school. Amphibious Airplane or Heliocopter. The missionaries acquainted with the work in Cebu have strongly recommended that a light am phibious plane or heliocopter would greatly facilitate the work of evange lism among the many islands in the area. Other uses of such a plane
would be: a. More rapid and cheaper communication with the more than 30 New Testament chtirches already established in the islands; b. Better
communication with the other New Testament mission fields in the

Philippines; c. Flying the sick out from unhospitalized areas to areas where there are medical facilities, thus gaining the confidence of the people.

We have established a special fund for the purchasing of some type


of aircraft.
