Friday Feature: Abstinence education in the Philippines

Melisa Serata
Melisa Serata is an abstinence educator in the Philippines. She takes the message that "You're Worth Waiting For" (YWWF) all over the islands into public and private schools. She also talks with college students about the value of saving sex for marriage.

In the Philippines, outside speakers like Melisa have the freedom to talk about God and give the Gospel in the public schools. Countless students have professed faith in Christ as a result of her ministry.

For years, Melisa worked alone, but now she is starting to train other Christian workers to join in this important work of preventing sexual sin and abortion. She still gets by without regular support.

Prayer Request: Tomorrow she travels to Malaybalay Bukidnon and requests prayer because the roads are not good and currently under repair (probably due to recent flooding). "Pray for protection, strength and good running condition of the bus. I will start teaching on Sunday afternoon. Thank God for the great privileged to serve Him in this area, pray for souls and personnel to do the follow up. I love you Lord!" Amen!
If you'd like to help her, go to our Online Giving page and specify "Melisa Serata" in the Notes section.

Pray also for Life Matters president Tom Lothamer as he travels to Angola, Indiana, this weekend to conduct a board training retreat with the leadership team of Compassion Pregnancy Center of NE Indiana.
