Introduction / History
There are five Butbut mountain villages: Bugnay, Buscalan, Locong, Butbut proper, and Ngibut. There are also several lowland resettlement villages including Ileb, Lacnog, Pakak, Binungsay, Anonong, San Pedro, Malapiat, and a few mixed villages. Many of the older Butbut still believe in animal sacrifice to appease the spirits for sick children or adults and other misfortune. There are three known evangelical Butbut pastors to their own people. Most of the villages have churches, either Catholic, Iglesia Ni Cristo, Baptist, or "born again" (Pentecostal). The main need is training for possible Butbut pastors. Onsite missionaries work to improve the health, sanitation, nutrition and build up existing, bible-believing churches.
