Hello, we are Ferd & Christie Basto, and like the Apostle Paul in Romans 10:1, our heart’s desire and prayer to God is that the Philippines might be saved! We have been serving as church planting missionaries in the Philippines since 2003, where we have lived amongst the people and have slowly weaved ourselves into their lives.

We have seen many, many souls come to know the Lord through earning their trust and taking the time to show Christ’s love through example. Our heart’s desire is to see Independent, Fundamental and Self-Supporting churches planted in villages where none already exist. God has graciously allowed us to plant 5 churches in the past 18 years, and we look forward to seeing God allow us to plant more in the future!
