Disaster Relief Chaplain Graduation

Congratulations to the graduates of the 2-week Disaster Relief Chaplain class. They are Ptr. Joel Angiwan, Miguela Beltran, Ptr. Arsenio Dayrit, Rowena Flores, and Celia Munson. As we seek certification to work in disaster areas we pray that they will use their training and heart to provide comfort and hope for those in suffering.

Comdev Class completed

The 3-day “Church-based Community Development” class completed today with 19 finishing the course. It is introductory in nature but covered many of the major aspects of the theory and practice of church-based COMDEV. Bob Munson led the training, supported by the technical expertise of Rene Gabaldon and Gerry Escobar. Flor Salas did a wonderful job caring for the lunches and meriendas. It is hoped that this training will lead to COMDEV projects sprouting up in multiple communities.

Completed Mission in Macabebe

Team picture at Saplad-David

Wonderful time in Macabebe. Two medical missions there April 10-11. The first was at the Colis house in Saplad-David. The second was on the island of Pulo, hosted by Celia Munson’s family there. Between the two small communities, we treated nearly 400 people. We hope to develop long-term relationships with these two communities for transformational development.
