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.

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!

**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.

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.
