FREE 2019 VBS Materials Coming Soon

You support your own kids and community welfare when you support VBS materials’ maker and VBS event organizers. Vacation Bible School for kids literally change communities where they are held.  Below is my free offer:

  1. In “Tagalog” (or Filipino language)
  2. In English

2019 Pinoy VBS Cover (Tagalog)

2019 Pinoy VBS Cover (English)

  1. Teacher’s Manual (fold-able pamphlet)
  2. Student/Attendee Activity (fold-able pamphlet)
  3. Organizer Manual (fold-able pamphlet)
  4. VBS Graduation printable reference (fold-able pamphlet)

Note:  I did not put everything in the manuals so that the organizers and teachers can incorporate their own ideas and creativity.

The main goal of this materials is to reach-out to as many churches as possible, especially those that has the heart for kids ministries and VBS but has only little funds.  I am leveling the playing field for them.  I am doing this since 2011 and at the moment the requesting Churches already reached 130+ and still counting (it increase every year).  I started on this endeavor when my wife  was first diagnosed with breast cancer.  I am used to supporting my support ministry from my own earning.  But recently , the burden is getting heavier and as times passed by, I am already need assistance especially now that we already have a daughter and my personal tool is already dilapidated (my printer broke because I also print and donate materials for our Church Sunday School, and simultaneously used it for work purposes, laptop is showing signs of dilapidation, I pay bills related to electric and internet consumption, etc.).  Hope someone out there will donate ample amount to improve my facility as I am doing this as non-profit.

I am giving it for free via email (downloadable). I am aiming to come-up with apps base so those who could not afford to print the manuals, can still use it to organize, to train teachers/volunteers and to forward the lessons to volunteers with access to smart phones (paper less curriculum).

Most requests are from Christian Churches with less or no funds at all.  A number are from missionaries in remote areas and some were even from other countries.

Reasons Your Church Should Host a Vacation Bible School

  1. There is an obvious positive impact on kids
  2. Positive effect on Volunteers and Organizers
  3. Impact in the local church
  4. Impact on the community beneficial to nation building

Freelance Architectural Design

Around January of 2018 when a former co-employee approached me.  To cut the long story short, I was offered a freelance architectural design design job… I accepted.  It took me some time to finish because the requesting party change his mind on some details in many instances.  perspective drawing

Now it is halfway finish and I saw how my drawing slowly but surely turned into reality.  I did not just satisfy my client, I also satisfy the building permit approving city officer.  I guess my background in advertising design and corporate engineering became very useful because my design was obviously more clear and detailed compare to what other licensed architects are doing,  And having a teachable attitude somehow help me improve my woI rk.

title block

I did all the Title Block inclusive of structural, electrical, plumbing and sanitary plan.  And it did not end there.  It pass through evaluation, approval and fees to be paid.  Below photos shows that the drawing became a reality.  Believe it or not, I was even ask to report daily for months for the construction and supplies supervision.

Incidentally, I got the attention of the Engineer owner.  He gave me two more projects that I am both finishing at the moment.  It is supposedly finish already but the owner has change his directions on the plan so revisions are done once in a while.

I am willing to accept freelance drafting work if there is an opportunity.  I just need the basic instruction and needed data.  Rest assured it will be less costly.  I can be reached through my email:  mamita.offer@gmail.com
