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%)

  • 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.

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.

  • 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

Children’s Church Empowerment

I was able to support a number of less fortunate Christian Churches through Free Practical Vacation Manuals and it was well requested from North to South (Philippines), from rural and urban areas and to far location I could not believe I can reach out.  Below are just some photos as I  cannot upload it all:

I myself could not believe that my offered materials were requested even to as far as Zimbabwe, Oman, Taiwan, Israel, USA (missionaries to Vietnam and Philippines), and other countries.

It’s just not teacher’s manuals are not enough.  I desire to empower the workers and volunteers with ready tool box equip with school supplies and stocks of needed basic materials priority Philippines, as follows: boxes of pencils, crayons, chalk, portable block board, art/craft papers, scissors, boards, pens, coloring books, notebooks, attendance record notebook, first aid kit, Children’s Bibles, etc.

We seek donors or grantors… we can give the mailing address of the church or you can allow us to purchase the items and we will just deliver the kits to them via local courier.  You may donate either through Paypal or Xoom.com or Western Union or though TT Bank to Bank.

Trials

We are in support of cancer patients and one of our beneficiary is a 31 year old lady with stage-3 Ovarian Cancer who is undergoing CHEMOTHERAPY.  The mother just lost her husband 9 months ago and talking to us every Sunday for strength.  I told the mother that I have nothing to offer because my wife is also under breast cancer treatment.  Nevertheless,  that I can try to finding donors even for the highly expensive medicines.    If you knew someone who can help, below is the actual prescriptions:

Below is the immediate requirement yet very costly.

If you can help or knew where we can solicit the medicines or any form of support, you can email me directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

All I desire is to help save cancer patient lives within my reach yet lack financial capability to buy medicines or be treated.  I know how hard it is because my wife is also under treatment.  I thank God because I have earnings and I was able to solicit some of my wife’s medicines.  I am giving back by at least finding donors to a number of patients we help in our church.

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!
