About Marites (Tess) Ngiraiwet

The first mission organization I joined was Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF); a faith-based mission organization with a threefold purpose:

  1. To evangelize children with the Word of God.
  2. Disciple children for Christian growth.
  3. Channel children to Bible-believing Churches.

I volunteered with CEF in 1998, and in 2000, I started working full-time in Children’s ministry. In 2006, my friend invited me to visit Palau, where I met Pastor Hiob Ngirachemoi and his wife Leah, who was one of my colleagues in CEF. The couple encouraged me to work with them in Palau Evangelical Church’s mission office so I applied as a volunteer staff member. That is where I met the Stinnettes, and they conducted training and discipleship that led me to disciple other women in Palau.

Serving in the Philippines

On July 01, 2022, I returned home to the Philippines, knowing this was the Lord’s leading. I decided to join Ms. Ethel Laco, who desired to reach out to the people in her hometown on the Catanduanes Island of the Philippines. My original plan was to support Ms. Ethel for the short term, but God guided me and called me to this ministry.

We work in children’s ministry, which includes Good News Clubs every Saturday, and values education in local schools for kindergartners through 6th graders on Wednesdays. We also provide one-on-one discipleship for women three days a week and conduct training for Sunday school teachers and volunteers in outreach programs and party clubs.

I joined Liebenzell USA in 2024, and it’s a privilege to continue sharing the gospel in our ministry in the Philippines with the support of Liebenzell USA.
