A STATUE IN DAVAO CITY: FOUR PEOPLES, TRIBAL,MUSLIM,CATHOLIC,PROTESTANT
“We want to help too!”
When Christmastime was approaching, the parents of
many of the poor children at BLC approached our administrator, Dr.
Ayoc, and said, “We want to be in the kids' program as well!” Since
the all-you-can-eat dinner for the kids was to cost $2 per person,
the school covered the cost of the kids, while their parents scrounged
and save until they had enough to join their kids. This is the very
first time that the kids had two celebrations: on off-campus one and
also their annual Christmas presentation at BLC. Even the restaurant
people were blessed!
DO YOU HAVE A SUMMER PROJECT?
THESE ARE NEEDS THAT WE HAVE TO SUPPLY FOR OUR 2006 BLC CONSTRUCTION:
“Run for a cause!”
To keep from gaining too much weight on our 7-month trip to the USA, I decided to run each day. But when I checked the internet for races, I found that, at the very time we will be in Florida, the Tallahassee Marathon will be offered! So I signed up. Then a friend had a great idea: Why not run for a cause?
The timing could not be better. The matching gift challenge (see below) will expire in February, so any funds that come in February (or before) that are earmarked for either “matching funds” or “marathon challenge” will be doubled by a friend of ours.
Here is how it works: I (Paul) will run the 26.2 miles on February 4, 2007. Anyone who sponsors me for any amount (per mile) will send a check to Christian Aid Mission, and their gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar. So if someone pledges $1 per mile, they would send a check for $26.20. Yet BLC will receive twice that much, or $52.40! Likewise, if you pledge $10 per mile, you will send a check for $262. Yet BLC will receive twice that much, or $524! Undesignated funds will not be matched. Running for a cause!
|AT CHRISTMASTIME, EACH OF THE SPONSORED CHILDREN AT BLC RECEIVE
A GIFT. SOME SPONSORS SEND A LITTLE “EXTRA” AT CHRISTMAS FOR
THEIR SPONSORED CHILDREN. SOME SPONSORS DO NOT. WE POOL ALL
THE FUNDS SO ALL RECEIVE EVENLY.
YOU KNOW YOU ARE A FILIPINO IF...
BLC ENERGY FUND:
EVERY DAY AT BARNER LEARNING CENTER, WE SUPPLY TRANSPORTATION FOR 287 STUDENTS. OUR BUSSES WERE BOUGHT WITH FUNDS SACRIFICIALLY & GENEROUSLY GIVEN BY FAITHFUL FRIENDS.
