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.

I am personally in support of Christian projects though Children and Youth Ministry since 1986 and continue to support till to this day.  We will email donors with scanned photos of the donated items with receipts.

Below is one of the free latest materials I offered for free:

Below was the 2011 offer:

Below is the up coming offer (for Youth):

Hungry Souls

Bibles are needed in the prison, drug rehabilitation center, schools and government offices.   If you can donate or knows a group that can support, it will be highly appreciated (preferably tagalog but also accept English and Braille format for the blinds ).

You won’t believe how 1 Bible can change one’s life.   We also accept other library books – used or brand new (e.g.  children’s books, motivational books, agriculture books, art books, other skills books).

You may send your donations to:

Less Fortunate Stray Dogs

We are not affiliated to any organization that take care of dogs.  But almost a year now that we are feeding some stray dogs we saw in our community.  We frequently travel to Manila Philippines by bus and we noticed dogs at the vacant lot near the bus waiting shed just across our village.  At first my wife told me to give some of our sandwich to the dogs.  She says her heart breaks every time she saw stray dogs looking for food on the trash especially on rainy days. My wife is a true-blood-dog-lover since she was young.   Since then, we frequently brought them food and the dogs began to love us. They jump with joy once we approach them with or without the food. Dogs accepts us no matter what they had been through, being tied under the tree with no shelter on sunny or rainy days.  God created dogs to show us how to be loyal and be thankful for every blessing we receive every day, no matter how bad the day went for them.  We do not know who owns these dogs as they are living under the tree, day and night. Two of them are tied and two of them just stay under the tree. They stayed there even on stormy and cold days.  We were amazed how these dogs survived on cold nights, without covering during sunny morning or rainy afternoon.

My wife named all four of them.  She adorably calls them by name every time we bring them something to eat and makes sure that these four dogs will always be a part of our meal.  If only our small house could accommodate these dogs, I’m sure my wife will insists to bring home these dogs to bathe and take care of them.

3 legged stray dog my wife calls, Misty

A three-legged dog probably because of an accident early on her life.

Here is Misty with her suitor “Bogart”

This is Kirk.  He is a shy type dog with table manners.  He doesn’t grab the food but instead wait until it was served.

Here shows Kirk tied on these rubble, with no shade to sleep on during cold and rainy nights.  The last time I saw Kirk, one of his leg was broken due (a car hit him after he got untied from the rope on his neck and ran to the highway without looking)

This is Snow. He is an adorable dog.  He is so sweet that he will just wait until everyone has its own share of food.

Snow is a dog with finesse and breeding, also with great table manners.  After the food has been served, that’s the only time he will start to eat.

This is Marinela.  She is a carefree dog.  On the first day that we noticed her, she has lots of wrinkles on her forehead.  But after a few months of feeding her, her wrinkles were gone.  Maybe it was because of the love and care we showed her.

Marinela recently gave birth to two cute and healthy puppies on this rubble under the tree.

We were able to help the less fortunates but we do not expect to help dogs as well.  Dogs are like humans that needs love and affection but only God gives us the wisdom to appreciate things as well as animals around us.  Hope someday we can establish our own Foster Home for Stray Dogs.

Truly God’s word is alive that He says..  Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are worth more than many dogs and sparrows.

True Christmas Date

Basing from Biblical naration of the travel of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the first Christmas or the birth of Jesus Christ obviously could not happen during the winter season or on December.  The couple surely won’t survive the cold wheather if they travelled on the period.  Bible Scholars believed it happened during spring season.  

There were even other dates for other types of believers as in Russia – January 6.  

Historical reference in the declaration of December 25 as birth of Christ is to be found in the Chronography of 354, an illuminated manuscript compiled in Rome in 354.  Early Christians celebrated Christmas every January 6, although this festival emphasized celebration of the baptism of Jesus.  Deeper study shows that Christmas was actually a politcal moved with a purpose during Constantinople’s reign in 379 and to Antioch in about 380.  It was promoted in the Christian East as part of the revival of Catholicism following the death of the pro-Arian Emperor Valens at the Battle of Adrianople in 378. The feast disappeared after Gregory of Nazianzus resigned as bishop in 381, although it was reintroduced by John Chrysostom in about 400.  Part reference to this information is Wikipedia. 

The date of birth of Christ is no longer that important as the Bible is more focus on the meaning of Christmas.  Although, I cannot deny that still there are concervatives on this issue.  What is more important to many is Christ is being known and preached in God’ suttle way, even to the nations who don’t believe in God and the Bible is not permitted.

May you share your blessing this Christmas!

To many, Christmas is shopping or homecoming or merry making.

I see no wrong in it if you want to enjoy your holidays! Why not? Go ahead!  But may you also share your blessing, especially to the less fortunate kids as seen in the video.

A little act of kindness can transform children’s lives.  Kindly support me as I reach them.

Blogging and Commodity Trading are what I do for my self, but organizing projects for the less fortunates is how I give back. I am in support of the kids and youth since 1996.

You can send you donations either through parcel (for food or in kind) or through Paypal and Western Money Union if in a form of money.  Proof of gift to the less fortunate will be given.  A donation of $1 is already equivalent to a 1 kg rice with canned sardines (good for 1 day for 1 small family).   

PayPal 

Or you can tell me where would you want it be used (e.g. education, toys, etc.) 

But if more donations are gathered, I may use it to establish a formal community service center where we can host projects for development, livelihood, children/elderly care, etc. for long term benefits. 

I my self is donating and in coordination with local churches and NGO. 

If you prefer to donate in kind, you may send it through FedEx, DHL, or the like at…

Thank you very much and Merry Christmas to you!

I am actually in support of the kids, youth, the elderly and community service since 1991 as per below photos. 

The most recent I facilitated were donations of umbrellas, grocery items for the Pastors and Elderly workers, and funding for the improvement of Children’s Church c/o In Christ We Live Family Christian Center (small church in the Philippines — within Talipapa Novaliches municipality).

My previous initiated projects in support of the community and less fortunate:

Former Youth 

Above photo are the youth and teens I previously supported (I’m in the middle).

Most of them became professionals and are now young adults.

They followed me since their elementary years and they continued up to now. 

Some of them are the kids I used to motivate per below photo.

Many continued what I started but still doing what I do best – support the community and the less fortunate within my reach.

There’s more but all are too many to show.
