One inspiring visit I did recently was in Payatas, the garbage dumpsite of Metro Manila. Last September 4, 2016 my wife and I visited our local congregation, the Payatas Family of Christ Church, a local congregation of Grace Communion International.
Having lost his arrastre job at the South harbor, Ptr. Fred Millamena went to Payatas to look for a place to live in which was rent-free and somehow earn a living in the area. Without realizing it he eventually had a sizable group of several families which started as a church in 1997. The church has continued to serve the community of poor people who make a living out of the garbage they gather from the dumpsite.
Here’s a video of Ptr. Fred Millamena himself telling the story about how the Lord has reached out to the poorest of the poor at the Payatas garbage dumpsite:
