Today in Church we recognized Student Missionary Outreach, directed by Renato Del Mundo. He has been allowed to go into high schools all over the country with an anti drug and alcohol program that feeds many into the Bible Studies.
We talked about the political tensions over the upcoming elections and the need to stop the corruption that is keeping a country already poor in a desperate condition. One of our members has made many trips there to work with the prison churches and the poor. We were inspired by the success of their ministry in helping students find places of service, meaning and purpose in their lives.
The Philippine community in American is so patriotic and strong and family oriented. Young Alvin, living and working in LA told us that in every Philipino home their are a constant stream of visitors and relatives and much money sent home to help their families still living in great need.
