Open Eyes Mission was pioneered by Rev. Glimar “Glem” Melo in 1997. He left the United States and moved to Mindanao in January 1998. At first, he served as preacher in Operation Blessing medical missions. Then in 1999, he started reaching Muslims in the border of Bukidnon and Lanao del Sur.
Today, 14 years later, Open Eyes Mission has accomplished much by the grace of God:
- More than 1,500 pastors and leaders have been trained in Mindanao and all over the Philippines
- More than 1,000 poor children have been reached through Sidewalk Sunday Schools, personal visitation and feeding programs
- More than 50 families have been served through holistic ministries
- More than 2,000 disaster victims have been served through relief and recovery programs
Please help us serve more and more of the poorest of poor children and families in Mindanao and other destitute areas in the Philippines. Click here to get involved.
