Picture Blog: Our trip to Camiguin

We visited the group of missionary women on Camiguin Island. We had such a blessed time with them. The Island is beautiful, but VERY hot. We really enjoyed visiting with them and being inspired by their great missionary example.

where Fr. Jo brought us to eat breakfast.

On the ferry to Camiguin Island. It took about an hour
and twenty minutes.

the water to pull in the ropes to tie it to the dock.

One of the blessings of missionary life: more time together as a family. Thank you Jesus for this gift!

If it is displeasing to you to serve the LORD, choose today whom you will serve, the gods your ancestors served beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose country you are dwelling. As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

Sponsor a Student

Sponsor a Student Program

We are very excited to be working with our mission team on an exciting new project. We have seen the great need in our community for education. Children whose families can not afford their school fees and school supplies drop out of school. Many never go back and grow up to be adults who can not read or write. The goal of our sponsorship program is to provide support for students to continue attending school.

What grades are we looking to get sponsors for?
  • Elementary Students (K – 6)
  • There is no Junior High School here & students graduate high school in grade 10. As of next year high school will be extended to grade 12. This could result in even more students not completing school.
  • High School (7 – 10)
  • Pre-school Students attending the Deaf School
  • ALS (Alternative Learning School) for continuing education students

What can sponsorship help to cover?
  • Sponsoring a student would help cover their school fees, school supplies, uniform, daily food needs, and transportation to and from school.
  • For adult students in the ALS program it may also include a scholarship for their families living expenses.

How much does it cost to sponsor one student?
  • Each students need is different
  • We can match you with an individual student
  • OR you can donate to the general fund.

Who needs sponsorship?
  • We have several students currently needing sponsorship.
  • I have posted their information and picture (if available) below.

How do I sponsor a student?
  • If you would like to give the gift of education to a student in need please send me an e-mail at
In the e-mail please include your:
  1. Name
  2. mailing address
  3. phone #
  4. e-mail
  5. Name of student you would like more information about

  • We will contact you by e-mail.
  • And begin praying for them today!
Remember that sending a student to school can be LIFE CHANGING. The cost to send a student to school in the Philippines is MUCH lower than in the United States. For some it is as little as $15 per month (for school supplies and transportation). 

Please consider sponsoring a student. Perhaps you belong to an altar society, Knights of Columbus, Youth Group, College Ministry Group, Mom's Group, Book Club, etc. and you could sponsor a student as a group. Please pray for the students and for God's help in finding a sponsor.

Jericho Project in Isla Bonita

The men of our mission team started up the Men's Group in Isla Bonita a few weeks ago. It has been an awesome opportunity for the men of that community to grow in their relationship to the Lord and become strong, husbands, fathers and leaders. A little over a week ago they ended the Jericho Walk (marched around the community praying everyday for 7 days, and on the last day they marched 7 times around). The inspiration for this march comes from Joshua 6.  

Early the next morning, Joshua had the priests take up the ark of the LORD.
The seven priests bearing the ram’s horns marched in front of the ark of the LORD, blowing their horns. Ahead of these marched the picked troops, while the rear guard followed the ark of the LORD, and the blowing of horns was kept up continually. On this second day they again marched around the city once before returning to camp; and for six days in all they did the same. On the seventh day, beginning at daybreak, they marched around the city seven times in the same manner; on that day only did they march around the city seven times.

Joshua 6: 12-15

Maricel Home Project COMPLETE!

A big THANK YOU to all who prayed and supported this project. Maricel and her family are now in their new home. Click here to see pictures of their home before we started re-building the new house.

Here it is during construction:

New cement block foundation and framing the outside walls

New tin roof
The new cement floor

Framing the bedrooms
 (now they have 2 bedrooms instead of one big room for everything)

The C.R. (comfort room) or as we would call, the bathroom

And visiting our friends to see the finished house:

The whole family saying salamat! (Thank You!)

Not only did this project allow us to build this house but we were also able to build a bathroom for another family. We also provided work for several men in the community as they helped to build this home. God really blessed this whole project. Salamat sa Dios!
