Women's Conference: Philippines

October 2018

Second Annual Women’s Conference for The Indigenous Aeta Women

Esther Movement has partnered with the local ministry To God Be The Glory Ministries to bring this very special event to the over 100 of the local women from the Aeta People. 


In an culture where women are second or even third, we will be honoring and loving the Aeta women through God’s word and practical application. We believe this may be the first time where they will have an opportunity to focus on their own walk and relationship with our Heavenly Father. 


Are you called to teach?

If God has placed it on your heart to get involved in ministering to women worldwide through teaching or service in the field we are very glad to meet you. Our mission is to act as a bridge to this and many other ministries giving women in the US who feel there is more for them to do opportunities to fulfill their calling.


Do you love working with kids?

When we can offer a children's program at an {em} conference the liklihood that a local woman can and will attend increases dramatically. This means a VBS-style program is an essential part of our conferences. We want to nurture and teach these kids about the love of God and have some fun with them too. If you love kids, we need you!


Will you send a woman to conference?

Sponsor an Aeta woman to attend this life-giving conference for just $25. This nominal fee covers her travel, food, and lodging for the three day conference. Our goal is to bless 100 Aeta women with this opportunity. Click HERE to sponsor an attendee through our parent ministry Global Sharing. 


For this conference we have the following opportunities to serve:

To God Be The Glory Ministries


When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, many Aetas lost their lives and over 20,000 were displaced in camps by the government. Pastor Wilson and his wife Cora saw opportunity for the gospel of grace and planted a church in a resettlement camp. Soon after planting the church, Wilson and Cora decided to move their family to the camp and over 20 years later, they are still there faithfully serving the Aeta. Over the years, the Ladringans have founded a medical clinic, a preschool and K-12 Christian Academy, a Bible College, a vocational training center, and a children's home for the poorest Aeta kids. These two and their amazing team are an inspiration to us all.
