Loyal, friendly, curious, and adaptable, Filipinos  can easily become good friends and effective kingdom servants. After meeting a Filipino and exchanging cell phone numbers, you may have a texting friend for life. But, under the Levi jeans, Chicago Bulls T-shirt and Adidas sneakers, even the English speaking Filipino (or Filipina) has Asian values distinct from many Americans. He or she places a much higher priority on belonging to a group (extended family, coeds, coworkers), and will rarely make decisions without their approval.

For a Filipino to become a “Bible Christian” may mean forsaking the opinion of family, friends and even their patriotic identity. When one Filipino became a believer, he was asked by a family member, “Why do you want to stop being Filipino?”  Once a Filipino belongs to the family of God and values His approval, he or she will often make great sacrifices for the sake of spreading Christ’s kingdom, even in areas very resistant to the good news of Christ.
