The Ati people are a minority tribe living in poverty and isolation on the island of Panay in the Philippines. They have dark skin and curly hair, and they are similar to the Aborigines living in Australia. Rejected by the majority of the population, four Ati clans live on a mountain side with no school, poor nutrition and health care, and little knowledge of Jesus Christ. We were shocked when we found these Ati, who lived so geographically close to us, but were completely isolated from the larger of society. Along with our Filipino co-workers we began to visit three times a week; to feed the Ati mothers and children with nutritious food, establish a relationship with them by telling them about Christ and the hope of Salvation. From these visits a strong desire grew in our hearts to communicate the message of Jesus Christ to the Ati people not only in words but in action, so the Ati would have hope and a better way of life. Now, we have already purchased land where the Ati live. We will soon start constructing the first school building for the Ati children, a powerful symbol of God’s love and hope for their future.
