Pastor Roy Malpas
Philippines, Manila, Tondo
The church that Pastor Roy pastors is right where it should be…in the midst of the slum area of Tondo! This church is a beacon of the light of Jesus to the poorest of the poor.
Type Smokey Mountain Philippines in your computer search engine, and you will see the images of the mountain of trash, the squalid shanties built on top of the dump site, naked children playing and scavenging. It has even become a tourist attraction; for those who want the pleasure of seeing how the poorest of the poor in the world live, you can go on a Smokey Mountain tour…
The original Smokey Mountain in Tondo, Manila, Philippines was a 2,000,000 ton garbage heap, which served as the waste disposal facility for Metro Manila for over 40 years. The dumpsite got its name from the continuous oxidation of decomposing waste and refuse fires. The garbage dumpsite was home to a huge squatter community of around 30,000, who scavenged through the garbage for survival.
This is where God has placed Pastor Roy and this is where God has sent ODMI to help Pastor Roy in his calling to bring the HOPE of JESUS to these beautiful people.

Another way to bless the young people of the Philippines year round is by sowing into their life by becoming a Scholar Sponsor. Their government only provides education for the children through the elementary years. If they wish to further their education, they must have the money to pay for school or a dedicated sponsor. Our ODMI church is located in a very poverty-stricken area and as you know, a way to break the poverty cycle is through education; therefore, we have offered a sponsorship program for these students. For just $50 per month, you can sponsor an orphaned child or a child from a home without the means to pay for an education beyond elementary school.
