Medical Mission Flashback

Close to 16 years ago we were involved in our first medical mission. It was in Balatok Mines, a community of gold miners, predominantly, in Itogon Benguet.

In 2005 we joined with friends to form DPDM, Dakilang Pag-Ibig DIADEM Ministries, Inc.. We served with them from 2005 until 2009. Many medical missions (see map below), as well as some COMDEV projects, and some children’s outreach work. We served about 30,000 patients at about 70 sites during this time. DPDM continued after we left. Presently, it is primarily a church and ministerial training center in Isabela Province.
