Live Your Life From Your Heart

Greetings Volunteer!

Just to update you a bit on the moms who attended the Tahanan ng Panginoon
B.L.E.S.S. event.  A van load of moms came specially to the graduation night,
one of the most attended sessions. 

One mom said she didn't want to go home after being ministered to, prayed
for by the servers.  Another mom said she felt so light and happy.  One mom 
told me that before she was attending prayer sessions like these, she used to
beat up her daughter but since she became serious in attending, she has changed
a lot and no longer does this.  Incidentally, her daughter is doing well in school!

Your efforts count a lot!  These children (and their parents) need what little
support (and prayers) we can give them.  Thank you for your tireless efforts!

You don't have to be a whiz at Math and English, we just need you to listen
to the children and to help them read books (provided) and maybe understand
their lessons (if you need assistance, other tutors may be asked).  Don't be
apprehensive about forgetting the basics from gradeschool, we've forgotten
too.  It's a team and we help each other remember.  What's most important
is that these children make a friend who encourages them to go on.

Just 2 hours to encourage them that learning can be enjoyable (or that it is
possible to understand) is more than enough. Seeing people who care is enough.

2. That that children will be able to learn and excel in school.

This Saturday:
We are calling for more volunteers!  Everyone is invited. 

You don't have to be a tutor.  You just need to have a
heart of compassion for these young ones.
What will we teach?  Primarily English and Math.  If you
are able to teach other subjects that is great but we don't
require professional tutors.  What we need are people
who are encouraging and positive for the children to

How?  Come and the children will ask you about their
homework or you can tell them a story or do some simple
arithmetic with them. 

Please consider coming.  When we lack tutors, we cannot give
the attention they badly need since we have to tutor 2 or 3 or
4 students at a time.  We aim to have one child to one tutor.
If you have more questions please feel free to reply to me.

Please confirm if you are coming so we can assign you a child
to Shannon at
