Christian Science in the Philippines

Another video shared news about Christian Science activity in the Philippines, including a visit to a remote mountain region where more than 200 Filipinos have formed several informal groups to study Christian Science and worship together.

“People are starting to think more logically about their faith and searching for a more meaningful religion or faith for them,” said Florence Carandang, a church member in Manila. “I feel like what we can offer the community is ... being able to learn more about your relationship to God.”

In a brief financial report, the church's Board chairman, Mary Trammel, noted that, as of the end of the fiscal year April 30, the church had $455 million on hand, including both restricted and unrestricted funds. The church has no outstanding debts, she announced, and its expenditures for the last year amounted to $102 million. The General Fund stands at $164 million.

All these figures have moved in a positive direction since last year, said Ned Odegaard, the church's treasurer, in an interview prior to the meeting.
