The Lord gave Matt and Christine Sauder a specific call: to reach university students for Christ. Matt and Christine live in metro Manila where they are beginning a campus hospitality ministry among the university students. They are currently engaged in culture and language acquisition so they can build deeper, more meaningful relationships. They love the Lord, they love people, and they are thankful for the opportunity to share the Lord with these young adults. The Sauders feel privileged to be called to follow the Lord in the Philippines.Reproducible Bulletin Insert
