There is just so much to see and hear – and some of it about breaks my heart. Yesterday we had to travel for two hours to get to this small village and left Butuan to go up into the mountains / hills. We passed through villages with houses that look like a puff of wind would carry them away. Children playing in the road, pigs, goats and cows roaming the hills, and people bathing in the ditches by the road. I saw a little girl who was about 5 years old carrying a baby and leading her little brother down the road. It makes me so ashamed and humble to see such poverty when I have so much.
Testimonies from the Philippines
Endie, mother of Liezl Mae who is attending the school for the indigent children
I am so very thankful to God that this Kingdom Message Ministry School has been built. Otherwise, my daughter would not be able to go to school because my husband’s salary is not even enough to buy rice for all of us (he makes about $2 a day). We always walk from our house to the school because we cannot afford to pay for transportation. But I am very thankful that my daughter qualified as an indigent for free tuition fees.
I hope and pray that this school will be even more successful and blessed so that many more indigent children will be blessed and can even finish their studies in this school.
Thank you very much for making this possible for us.
By Sharon, mother of a 6 year old Bob who is attending the school for the indigent children
I am very thankful for the school. My son qualifies as an indigent. I am also very thankful for the teachers, because the children here learn many lessons everyday. I have hope for my son that he learns much. In everything he does, he always sings to Jesus. I am very happy. The character and the attitude of the children in the school is amazing.
