About the People

The Palawano are a tribal group inhabiting the mountains in the south of Palawan. They are cultivators, forest-foragers, and hunters who somewhat resemble Malaysians. The Palawano language varies from region to region but seems to have similarities to Malay. Palawanos live in huts that they make from materials found in the jungle surrounding them. They live in family groups instead of typical villages and tend to live with the wife’s family group rather than the husband’s. These animistic people are controlled by their fear of the spirits, and the children are taught to fear them from their youngest days. Mainly illiterate but bright people, their youngsters have a yearning to learn. On the other hand, the adults have a fear of change and cling tenaciously to the ways of their forefathers.

“What else can I do, Lord?” I cried out to God. “I want her so, so badly to feel better, but more than that, to know that You love and care for her.”

Though the money was never returned, I gained valuable life lessons, and I am grateful for this experience. Even when it was not easy, I found the greatest joy and peace in choosing to forgive.

Unless Jesus Is in It

In our effort to bring people to Jesus and help with their physical or educational needs, we continually discover our own great need for Jesus and that nothing we do can be effective unless He is in it.

As parents and missionaries who have mentored and parented both of these young people, it is rewarding to see their spiritual growth and their commitment to the salvation of others.

Jungle House Call

God can write a happy ending to this story. He raised Lazarus to life, and He can bring Malnasan’s dead foot, toes and finger to life, as well.
