Love and Truth Asia Pacific, Inc. (LATAPI) came about as a result of a divine appointment by God in the year 2000, starting with a connection with one pastor in the city of Cagayan de Oro on the island of Mindanao. Since that time, LATAPI has gone through several modifications, becoming a thriving force in that area of the Philippines. LATAPI is led by our Chairman, Pastor Temotio Yap who is assisted by four other leaders (Pastor Masamiro Sumayo, Pastor Fabian Beronio, Pastor Wilifred Pamisa, and Pastor Edgar Sebuala).
Today, we have a total of 17 churches, several schools, and a Bible College in Cagayan de Oro City, where we are training young people for ministry and instilling the "DNA" of Love and Truth Ministries. We also have outreaches and feeding programs in several other areas of Mindanao, including some mountainous tribal areas that are difficult to reach. We have recently acquired a piece of donated property about an hour from Cagayan de Oro that will be used as God gives direction, for His Kingdom. We also have pastors in the capital city of Manila (on another island) who are ready to join LATAPI very soon.
Mission trips to the Philippines have included pastor’s conferences, youth conferences, ministry in churches, ministry/feeding in challenging areas, children’s outreaches, crusades, church and school dedications, and several huge baptism days in the ocean.
The future of LATAPI is exciting, and we love our brothers and sisters there! We can hardly wait to see what God is going to do next.
