Why the name hunlos-lusong? Hunlos in the vernacular means joining hands in getting a job done using one lusong, the vernacular for mortar. In the hunlos-lusong project, ordained pastors from other missions come and become visiting preachers joining hands with the local mission officers to enhance evangelism outcome.
