Our “Dinner For A Cause… A Serenade” has been moved to October 1, 6pm – 9pm. This will be held at the function hall next to Baguio Cathedral (above the Kinder Care).

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.

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.
