We are Francis, Leah, Julia, Avea, and Justice Daytec-- a family of Jesus-followers. God has called us as missionaries to Francis' homeland, the Philippines, and here we are worshiping Him and loving people on the Island of Mindoro. We are a doctor-midwife team who run a medical and maternity clinic, have a home-church, and bring medical care, community development and discipleship to the Mangyan tribal people. With our little salt-shakers beside us, we are working to bring hope, healing, education, and freedom to the broken, the poor, several least-reached tribes, and the Mangyans. Our hearts burn to worship God with the song of our lives, end injustice, and love people lavishly like Jesus does.
