On July 14 to 16 while the attempt to take over Capitol UMC at Puerto Princesa was brewing, the members of the Wounded Healers headed by Chita Millan, the president of the World Federation of Uniting and Methodist Women and Atty. Joe Frank Zuniga, the conference lay leader of the West Middle Philippines Annual Conference, held a working session with the galant leaders of the so called "Red Group" of Davao Area as well as the members of the autonomous movement of Bukidnon.
Said session was held at Waig Crystal Spring resort at Maramag,Bukidnon. They were able to forge alliance and came up with various courses of action.
They had shared their own ideas on how to establish the indigenous autonomous Methodist church in the Philippines. The autonomous movement is growing fast and in the next coming months a national conference of the autonomous conferences will be held to draft its constitution and by laws as well as the Tagalog version of the Book of Discipline called Aklat ng Batas Kaayusan.
By the way we really admire these groups in their clamor for autonomy of the Methodist church in the Philippines, a truly reformed and patriotic church free from American meddlings. We likewise acknowledge the galant stand and faith of the members of the Capitol UMC in Puerto Princesa.
