SAVE THE DATE:  ACTS29 Scholars’ Day Out 2016 will be on 9 July 2016!

Thrilled to see our kids from Payatas and Erap City again!  Last time we got together with them was two years ago on our ACTS29 Family Day 2014.  Back then, we had a whole-day event with our 39 scholars and we gave away 39 school kits.

This year, we are having 50 scholars join our event.  Morning, we’ll start off with a campus tour of the University of the Philippines Diliman (UP Diliman), my alma mater; quick lunch and catch up, then we do film viewing right after.

Pres and I are collaborating with UP Kabataang Pilosopo Tasyo (UP KAPITAS), an organisation of students who major in Philosophy in UP Diliman, of which I used to be a member some 20 pounds ago hahaha!  Happy to reunite with junior members and hope to catch up with our alumni on the event!

Thank you so very much, Karina L for designing our banner for the event!  Gorgeous layout – the kids will definitely love it!  See you all on 9 July 2016 at UP Diliman, Philippines!

Social Mission Conference 2016 (Singapore)

Pres and I are truly lucky to have been invited to attend the Social Mission Conference 2016 on 13 August 2016 at the Catholic Junior College in Singapore!  This will be our second time to come to such a wonderful coming together of people from varied backgrounds but are in unison in their faith.

We hope to meet Cardinal Chito Tagle during this conference.  He is the current President of Caritas Internationalis and he is known for his deep involvement in projects for the poor.  Pres and I are huge fans – back home, we used to catch him in this 15-minute early morning show on TV called Kape and Pandasal!  Do they still air this show?  The best way to start your day!

Let me share with the you the brochure for the Social Mission Conference 2016.

Hope to see you all there!

Ang bigay na pag-ibig sa atin, walang ibang karapat-dapat na tugon at sukli kung hindi pag-ibig.” – Cardinal Chito Tagle

Best friends don’t always seem at first to be the best ones in your circle, because they aren’t pretending to be who they are not. But in the long run, it will become apparent that they are genuinely incomparable.”  – Edmond Mbiaka
