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%)
  12. Taiwan: $2.1 million (0.5%)

  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 project requires lot and a building.  It may sound impossible you won’t believe how fulfilling such endeavor and the congregation is willing to help hand in hand to whatever donation is to be given.

**only in  Tagalog dialect at the moment (Philippines native/main language). But if someone is willing to help or donate needed finances to print or reproduce my concepts in a form of Booklet or Magazine type, I am willing to offer them for free so that many kids and churches will benefit from it.  If I will be supported, I desire to give them for free to Christian churches that

reach-out to poor and less fortunate communities.  But I first need to print it out for them.

I offer them for free to small Christian Churches or Christian Missionaries with no budget to purchase expensive materials.  If you are in the Philippines or in other countries and are interested, just e-mail me at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com and I will provide you the link where you can download them.  Kindly just provide me details or background of your church.  Better if you can donate any form of support as I still need to do some more (other translations and follow-up materials).

As my free offer is being requested now to as far as Zimbabwe, Hawaii  and other countries, I will appreciate if someone would volunteer to translate the materials in other common languages and dialects.  We are also being asked locally in Cotabato, Kalinga Apayao, Bataan, etc.  We also seek grantee or donors so we can reproduce these materials into well printed booklet format or VBS materials kit.

You can e-mail me directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo for more details and instructions.

I also seek donors and/or partners so I can print the materials, reproduce and distribute them for free (in many dialects and language translations).  Per my experience, Vacation Bible School  materials are very crucial as it gives purpose not just to the children who attends, but also to the volunteer and community.  Many of the communities we held VBS experienced remarkable change for the better.  I conceptualized this materials not to earn but as a way of giving back without strings attached.

email me at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com if you want the downloadable materials for free.

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.

Above manual is in Tagalog langauge/dialect.

Available in two levels only to fit to limited budget of a local church in poor communities or rural areas.    The levels are ages 9-12yrs old which I called “Big Kids” (combined Middlers and Juniors

Above manual is in English langauge.

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.
