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%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)

  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

Sunday School/VBS Materials.

In my years of handling Children’s Church and Supporting Vacation Bible School, I was able to make a practical manual fit for Filipino kids and friendly-reproducible so that those who are in poor areas could use them as well without spending too much.  The lessons and instruction I wrote were simple and highly motivational.

Below design is a my idea of collaborating Biblical lessons, Nationalism, Motivation and Filipino Values.  The illustration is partly excerpt from a particular illustrated Bible for children redesign with known Philippine symbol.  The design is subject to revision if a publisher or grantor will publish my works.  I intend to make a series of this, though these were already been in use by In Christ We Live Family Christian Center Philippines for three years already.  Other lessons with same format was also been used for more than 10 years already before this.

Available in two levels only to fit to limited budget of a local church in poor communities or rural areas.    The levels are ages 8 yrs below (not lower than 4yrs old) which I called “Small Kids” (combined Preschool and Primary.

I could provide the complete manuals with activities and graduation template with a donation to interested workers of a Church.  If you are from a well budgeted church, I appreciate it more if you can provide donation for me to continually do my support to less fortunate Christian Churches.

 

Lent for Dummies

Lent is an annual religious tradition within Roman Catholic religion.  It is described as the period of liturgical year starting from Ash Wednesday to end of Holy Week, which is Resurrection Sunday (or Easter as many are calling it).  

As per records, the purpose is to prepare the believers through prayer, penitence, alms giving and self denial in remembrance of the passion of Christ until His death and resurrection.  Historically, the practice was largely observed until the Protestant Reformation in the time of Martin Luther (a former Catholic Bishop).  

Many modern Protestant denominations these days observed the Lent in a refined and simplified manner.  Their teaching foundation is somehow different as they directly read the Bible for the story (mostly quoting from the four Gospel: Matthey, Mark, Luke and John).   Their observance has its  difference as its purpose is focus on remembrance to Christ sacrifices for the salvation of mankind, without inflicting pain or sacrifice on ones self (or penitence).  As they say, “salvation is a free gift from God when you sincerely accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior.  Salvation is by God’s grace through our faith, not gain through good works or sacrifices.”  This they believed from (John 3:16), “ For God so loved the world (or you), that He gave his only begoten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.  

Lent was also traditionally the term used to describe the period leading up to Christmas before the Advent officially recognized.  As there are differences in the observance within Catholic religion, there are also differences in many aspects in different countries.

The title of the painting is “Forgiven” by Thomas Blackshear.  Excerpt from Google Images. 

To better understand the Lent is to view the movie “Passion of Christ” by acclaimed Direct, Mel Gibson.  To me, this movie is the most honest Jesus movie ever made. 

Vacation Bible School 2010

I am an in support of Daily Vacation Bible School within selected areas in the Philippines since 1991.  I personally oversee the Children’s Church and Sunday School in years.  The kids that I used to minister now continue what I have started.   My styles are quite effective because I personally produced the manuals and materials based on Philippine culture.  I was able to utilize my skills in design and my background in Advertising.  Since then, lives have been change and the communities benefited.  For proof, please view the link below…

If you can support, please be our sponsor as we need the materials to be printed out (minimal costings only), including promotional items and added accessories needed.  We also need school supplies, tents, budget for food and transportation, and other necessities.  These we need to reach many places and many kids for Christ.  We are fortunate to have volunteer workers. Nonetheless, we need to provide them support as most of the places we send them are poor communities. 

For your assurance that your money and support will reach the right people, you can either choose to print the materials yourself (through your contact printing press).  You can just send the output via express delivery on or before April 2010.  Or you can allow us to look for local printing press (they will e-mail you directly the quotation).  Or if you want, I can also provide the Church Address and Contact person to whom you can send your donation via Bank to Bank (T/T) or Western Money Union.  The in-charge will give you receipt.  I won’t handle the money or donations, but I will be the one who will provide the designs. 

Concept Designs are available upon request.  Image shown is not the actual but somehow related.

You can e-mail me directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com for inquiries and remarks.  You can also view some of the church history at http://nov30.wordpress.com/

Philippines’ Role in Modern Israel

Before 1948, Jews have no country of their own and Israel did not exist since the Romans invaded the land in 70AD were the Jews finally expelled in their own land.  Jews take refuge in various countries across the globe.  Philippine was one of the chosen few countries to accept Jewish refugee and provided area to continue with their lives.  With their unique bond and religious ties, the Jews continue with their communication with the remains of their race no matter where they are. 

When the world start to recognized Israel’s existence on 1948 through

Manuel Roxas

United Nation, Philippine President then (Manuel Roxas) played a crucial role by instructing Carlos P. Romulo (Philippine Representative to the U.N.) to vote in favor of the independence of Israel inspite of pressures from many nations as many were against it during that time.   This I believed was written in Israel’s historical books.  That vote encourages other voting countries to not be afraid and use their concience for a fair vote.  It resulted to a

Carlos P. Romulo

majority vote in favor of Israel and it became the start of what Israel has become and accomplished till to this day.  

Israel has advance in many aspects since 1948.  Hope someday, Philippines will attain even some of the development Israel has accomplished.  Filipinos look forward to what God has promised Abraham… 

 

“…I will bless those who will bless you

and I will curse those who will curse you.“

Elvis Presley sang Amazing Grace

An Actor-Singer, Elvis Presley have been regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth-century popular culture.   I won’t go into details but one side of his life I will touch.  

I admire Elvis humble recognition of how he started and where where he got his first inspiration.  Although he lived a controversial and questionable Christian life, I will still recognized his brave showing of his faith like Samson.  Others may not agree on me but let me still recognized him through his videos via youtube. 

Elvis Presley’s earliest musical influence came from Gospel music. His mother recalled that from the age of two, at the Assembly of God church in Tupelo attended by the family, “he would slide down off my lap, run into the aisle and scramble up to the platform. There he would stand looking at the choir and trying to sing with them.  Later, the family sang together as a gospel trio. In Memphis, Presley as a young teenager frequently attended all-night gospel singings at the Ellis Auditorium, where the likes of The Statesmen Quartet led the music in a style. 

 

The Gospel according to Tim Tebow

photo excerpt from google images credits to http://news.puggal.com/tim-tebow-reads-ephesians-28-10-16386/

Ephesians 2:8-10 is the Biblical passage in Tim Tebows face today underneath his eyes.   It’s a Bible verse that separate Christianity from most religion.  I do not know of Tim’s motive but one thing I am sure… Jesus is preached where no Pastor or Evangelist have gone through.  It is not just a creativity but act of true bravery.  I can compare his to a classic Hollywood Movie “Quo Vadis.”

To Tim, please continue what you are doing as you are living what Ephesians 2:8-10 is saying.  You won’t believe how many are bless and encourage, and perhaphs are save because of what have done. 

Ephesians 2:8-10 reads as follows:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
