First Batch of Graduates…

First Batch of Graduates…

We just graduated our very first batch of kindergarteners at our Pre-school at our Christians in Action church in Puerto Princesa Palawan in partnership with International Care Ministries (ICM).  ICM provided all classroom materials and equipment & our CinA church, International Christians in Action Palawan, partially covers the salary of the teacher and her aid. 

Palawan grads
Future leaders of Palawan.

In conjunction of our FREE pre-school for the ultra-poor is parenting seminar to which parents of our students attends once a week seminar of Christian Parenting. One byproduct of our preschool is a morning Bible study/Devotions of the parents. The parents just hang out at the site while waiting for their children so we started this morning ministry for the parents. Three are now active members of our church while others enjoy the truth of the Word of God. It gives them hope, encouragement and joy at times. 

Unfortunately we may be closing our pre-school as ICM is moving on to transformational ministry and will be cutting off the financial support toward the salary of the teacher and the aid. We are praying for someone who will cover this lost financial support of 7500 pesos, approximately $150 a month. Please join me in prayer.
