Eileen and 6 others associated with the Philippines Armed Forces or Government graduated this year, joining our 11 previous graduates. Having had most of those 19 in my classes over the past 4 years, I can testify that it has been a work of God to see how these men and women move from general motivation for spiritual growth to passionate commitment for being Christ-like agents of change through the platform God gives them. They add so much to the IGSL community and God uses the multi-national community to transform their lives and their vision as well.
In February we signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Philippines Marine Corp, due in large part to 2016 IGSL graduate (& basketball buddy) Captain Vince Salmingo who is now the Director of the Marine Corps Center for Leadership Excellence. God has given Vince a platform that has influence over 10,000 marines and God has opened up a door for us to partner with him and the Marine’s to help shape these leaders and many more. Please pray that we would steward these opportunities well and that God continues to cause IGSL to be viewed with favor from the government and armed forces here in the Philippines.
