Let`s Spread The Good News 

Mission Good News supports the indigenouse Aeta people, spiritualy and practically.​ The MGN Mission Team in the Philippines, composed of the missionary family Schmid & youth worker Paz San Juan, ventured since 2014 continuing mission trips to different Aeta communities in the region of Bataan. To Spread the Good News and to give the needy a helping hand

​Out of these continuing visits with devotional and prayer meetings for years, grew up a church and a farm livelihood project . 

Church Planting

In 2015 could the mission team plant a small home circle in the Aeta community of Abucay. After years grew the small community into a church.  

After 3 years of nursing did the MGN team entrust the church leading into the hands of locals. In order to go on and plant another church.

Farm Project

The 2 hectares MGN Farm is is lying in the green mountain area of Bagac, Bataan and at the same time close to the coast of the South China Sea. We support the Aeta community with a livelihood farm project. We provide for the Aeta community farm land for cultivation. They can plant vegetables and fruits and use the harvest for their own profit. As return they`re taking care to the maintenance of the farm.

Aeta People

The Aeta communities belong to the Negritos ethnic group. Their tribe can be traced in the settlement of the first Filipinos or inhabitants of the Philippines. The Aeta people are distinguished from other Filipinos through their dark skin, curly hair, and small body height. These indigenous people have a particular bond to the nature. The jungle in the mountains is their farm and they have the ability to survive in the deep jungle.​

Today many learned to live in permanent settlements. The most of the Aeta people is living from hunting, fishing, and farming. They’re selling bamboo, fish, lobster, honey, and fruits to the lowlander. The Aeta people have their own language, but they communicate to the lowlanders and outsiders in Tagalog (Filipino). These peaceful nature people are extremely shy and they`ve quite difficulties to assimilate to the modern world. They live in solitude regions as social outsider and try to help themselves. They are always more and more confronted with the modern world. They need help!
