DLC Philippines Report: Aug - Sept 2011
The Dag Heward-Mills' Literature Crusade (DLC) started in the Philippines with the sending of 2 people to Cagayan De Oro City on the 6th of August 2011, by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills. The Ministry was warmly received by Bishop Herbert Bing Gadian of Jesus for All Nations Church, Cagayan De Oro City, who has been an ardent follower of Bishop Dag's ministry since 1998. Though he has never met Bishop Dag, he had read many of his books, soaked in his messages and had always prayed that there would one day be a connection between them.
A schedule for the literature crusade was agreed by the team and the outreaches began. The schedule, proposed to span a period of about 4 weeks, had planned outreaches to 18 cities, namely; Cagayan De Oro City, Davao City, Digos City, General Santos City, Koronadal City, Valencia City, Malaybalay City, Iligan City, Butuan City, Paranaque City, Cavite City, Pasay City, Manila, Mandaue City, Lapu City, Cebu City, Misamis Occidental and Pagadian City.
