Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)

  14. Bahrain: $1.1 million (0.2%)
  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

THE VALUE OF CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

One fine day in a particular area in USA in the late 60s, there was an ordinary Sunday School teacher who resigned because she thought nothing is happening.  The kids were still noisy and inattentive in spite of her weekly effort.   Unknowingly, a number of young American soldiers were ambushed in Vietnam.   Many died instantly.

The wounded were brought to the camp for treatment.   As they were too many, the attending Doctors can only attend to one patient at a time.  But one young soldier called the attention of one of the Doctor.  That young man is dying yet he wasable to ask the Doctor to whisper his last words.  The young man said, “Please write to my former Sunday School teacher in America.  Please tell her thank you very much because one Sunday when I am still a kid, she led us in a prayer of acceptance that I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and savior.  Now by faith, I believe that I am saved. Tell her that now I am going to heaven. Also tell her that I will wait for her in heaven to thank her there myself.” After that, the young soldier died.

Few days later, the doorbell rang on the residence of that old Sunday School teacher.  As she read the name of the sender, she could not believe she will receive a letter from Vietnam.  But as she read the letter, her tears began to flow and couldn’t help but cry.   From that day on, she decided to teach children again through Sunday School and actively participated in other Children’s Church activities.

The story was excerpted from one of the back issues of one known Christian booklet publication.

As to Vacation Bible School (VBS), it will only be for a few hours per day, in just five to six days.  If you think that teaching kids through VBS is easy, think again!  This is no ordinary school or summer activity as it is not simple as it looks.  This period is crucial to both attending children and volunteer teachers and workers. To those who have experienced it, the values and motivation kids learned from VBS will be their stepping stone to a clearer view of Christian life and pathway direction they will choose to go through in their life time.  Such activity will be very inspiring if the organizers and teachers will come-up with enjoyable and effective VBS.  As a result, this will strengthen their belief in God and will gain self confidence as they perform a task or goal or service to God through the Christian church they belong.  Many of them will grow to be a blessing to their family, churches, community because a teacher has stepped-up to share God’s love to them.   Same thing applies to Sunday School teachers.

If you are in anyway serve God through the Children’s Church, never feel that your efforts are not getting anywhere because Jesus appreciate everything you do for him.  One day, you will also be surprise as many will thank you in Heaven.

We are giving away a free VBS materials (downloadable).  It’s just that the language is still limited to Filipino (tagalog) at the moment.  If any publisher or fund grantee is willing to support, we are willing to collaborate as my original materials is being requested not just in the Philippines but also in other countries as in Hawaii and Zambia.  You can e-mail us at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com for details.

I salute the Sunday School and VBS teachers!

Nelson Mandela

In the 90’s, I began to hear Nelson Mandela through the international news.  All along, I just knew him as a political figure.  That’s all.  But there are times I think why Mandela is even invited to rock concerts and celebrity shows far from his homelad?  This is uncommon to many political figures.  One time, I even saw him being hug and greeted by Bono of U2 .  I became more curious since then.   

I already forgot my intestest with Nelson Mandela until I watched the movie “Invictus.”    Two Thumbs up for the cast and crew, especially to its Director Clint Eastwood!  What a remarkable film!  Trully Awesome beyond the usual! 

But I noticed something.  I always admire Morgan Freeman and he has my respect and admiration.  It’s just that Nelson Mandela’s story is too remarkable for any actor could portray and the movie itself is too limited to tell how Nelson Mandela live his life and ho he have won South Africa’s respect and the world. 

Now, it’s been 20 years since he was freed from his cell.  He was a hero, imprisoned for 27 years for the crime of opposing a government that sought to enforce severe segregation laws with brutality.  It seems that when he was freed, so as the people of South Africa.  Below is how they returned Mandela’s sacrifices to his country… 

“We dedicate this day to all the heroes and heroines in this country and the rest of the world who sacrificed in many ways and surrendered their lives so that we could be free,” he said in his inauguration speech. “Their dreams have become reality. Freedom is their reward. We are both humbled and elevated by the honor and privilege that you, the people of South Africa, have bestowed on us, as the first President of a united, democratic, non-racial and non-sexist government.” 

Mandela did not just serve his people well.  He also kept his promise —  serve but one term. 

As to his own words, “I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination,” he said. “I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony, and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for, and to see realized. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” 

His name means, “pulling the branch of a tree” or, colloquially “troublemaker,” in the Xhosa language — foreshadowed how that greatness would manifest.  

Nelson Mandela’s is an inspiration to many and will continue to be.  His life and legacy is a continuous reminder to all leaders and aspiring to be… “if anyone wishes to the leader must be the servant of all.”

America gives back

The fund raising drive resulted to an overwhelming text-message donations for American Red Cross for the earthquake victims of Haiti.  Even the atlethes and the first lady joined in the campaign. 

As report, the organization had collected pledges of $103 million, about $22 million of which came through the text-messaging program (as of late Sunday). The National Football League’s promotion of text-message donations during its weekend playoff games produced stunning results, with money “coming in at the rate of $500,000 an hour,” said Roger Lowe, a Red Cross spokesman.

Moringa Oil as Biofuel is better than Jatropha

Jatropha was the toast in biofuel oil industry until moringa was discovered as better source.  No offense to propagators of jatropha but this is now the reality. This ain’t rocket science to figure it out.  All you need to do is read articles, books and video presentation related to moringa and jatropha.  In comparisson, Jatropha has a poisonous part to be left when you get the oil. It’s like a nuclear waste, where will you dispose the waste?”   As to Moringa (Malunggay), all the parts of the tree are useful and highly benefitial with income potential. The most beneficial part of malunggay is nutrition. And as to my research, moringa could prove to be better in terms of maximizing what we can get out of the plant. This is shown by the number of medicinal benefits and uses that Moringa has over jatropha. 

Recent Development on Demands

The discovery resulted to a growing demand for Moringa oil or oil extracted from the seed of the moringa (malunggay) tree in the US for use as biodiesel.  Europe also starts to source out.   One company to require is North American Biofuels Inc.  Since January of 2008, they started to tap moringa oil for its biodiesel needs.  But there are others who joined the trend (both big and small business players in the import-export sector, farming, cooperatives and processing plant).  There were reports that there will be giant moringa processing plant to be established in Mindanao and Visayas Philippines (American Company).  On around 2009, there were about more or less 200 biodiesel marketing companies that use soybean oil as biofuel in the US alone. In the next 50 years, it was estimated that Japan and Korea will be the largest markets for Moringa oil as biodiesel.  

On around 2008, a number of MIT graduate students from USA studied the potentials of moringa tree directly in the Philippines.  They made a remarkable discovery.  Their study in PowerPoint format is available for free in the internet.  See below outline: 

Moringa Oil processed as biodiesel has the following properties:

  1. Iodine number better than that of regular diesel, indicating fuel stability.
  2. A cetane number indicating good ignition behavior.
  3. A cold filter plugging point indicating suitability even in winter.  

Income Projection for Farmers:

For a 10-ha moringa farm, a farmer could earn Php2 million during the first year (equivalent to around US$43,478), Php3 million in the next three years (equivalent to around US$65,217), and Php4 million in the next four years (equivalent to around US$86,956). In addition, the meal, or sapal, of malunggay seeds may be used as livestock feed (all parts has its use and income potential). 

Other Nutritional Benefits:

  • Benefitial to mothers in need to breast feed their baby.  The moringa leaves were found with lactating capability for mothers as a supplement to induce increased milk production.  Traditionally, leaves are prepared as a soup or mixed in other food for the benefit of either the mother or the child.  Proven as cheapest way to control malnutrition and hunger among poor families.  Already been introduced in Africa and was proven very effectve.
  • Moringa can also be used to increase sperm production in infertile men.
  • Erosion control and benefits the global warming campaig.
  • Roots can be used to treat snake bites.  

According to a Philippine Bureau of Plant Industry study:

  • (Moringa) has seven times the vitamin C in oranges
  • Four times the calcium in milk
  • Four times the vitamin A in carrots
  • Twice the protein in milk
  • Three times the potassium in bananas

Malungai/Malunggay is planted throughout the Philippines in settled areas at low and medium altitudes… The plant is a small tree, 8 meters or less in height, with corky bark and soft, white wood. The leaves are alternate, usually thrice pinnate, and 25 to 50 centimeters long. There are three to nine leaflets on the ultimate pinnules. These leaflets are thin, ovate to elliptic and 1 to 2 centimeters long. The flowers are white and 1.5 to 2 centimeters long, on spreading panicles. The pod is 15 to 30 centimeters long, pendulous, three-angled and nine ribbed. The seeds are three-angled, and winged on the angles.
