Personal and Ministry Background

Eseng and Ana came to know the Lord through the ministry of the Navigators in early 70’s. As single professionals, Ana taught at Araneta University while Eseng worked in a feed mill company. While working in these institutions, they ministered among college and high school students. In 1980, Ana left for Cebu for further training with the Navigators. She started the Nav ministry in UP-Cebu while teaching there. Eseng followed and was assigned as contact staff at Cebu Institute of Technology in 1982. They got married in 1985 and have been blessed with three children, Joan, Joyce and Jonathan.

The Lord led them to Davao City as part of STEER 13. Together with seven alumni from other ministry areas, they pioneered the Nav work here. Presently ministering with them is Dexter Dumayas, a staff on training, who is reaching out to USeP students. Ana and Eseng team up with and coach a bunch of alumni in developing Small Bible Communities in the city. They lead Bible studies among students and faculty of Brokenshire College and among Nav kids, children of contacts in the communities. Joan, their eldest, leads two high school students from these communities, too. Both having a Master’s degree in Counseling, they integrate counseling in evangelism and disciplemaking.

Davao City is the regional center for Region XI and is one of the world’s largest cities in terms of land area, occupying more than 2,400 square kilometers. Its population according to the 2000 Census is 1,147,116. Davao City houses more than ten colleges and universities. The melting pot of almost all cultures in the Philippines, it is also the home for the many migrants from Luzon and Visayas, ethnic people groups, endangered Philippine Eagle, the unique orchid Waling-waling, the country’s highest peak mountain Mt. Apo, and pristine beaches.
