Dear Pastor, Friends and Faithful Supporters,
In God’s goodness, we greet you a Happy New Year! It was an interesting year but through it all God has allowed us to feel secure by his steadfast love. 2021 was definitely full of challenges and we were tested more than we thought we could handle. We are just beyond grateful for God’s faithfulness in our lives. We cannot express how thankful we are to also have such generous and thoughtful supporters. We feel absolutely greatly loved by you all.
Subic Bay Children’s home rescued 13 children in 2021. We are thrilled to report to you that among those 13 children are three sets of siblings. We love having the opportunity to keep them close to each other. They are very happy to be in one home together and we want to thank you for your continuous support to make this happen for them.
We are using the Accelerated Christian Education and some Abeka. This best fits our substantial home set up because before our children start school there is a diagnostic test wherein it will determine their grade. We had two students, Katrina Roda and Prince Lualhatti, who graduated from high school. Katrina Roda is now the Manager of one of Subic Bay Children’s Home’s livelihood projects which is our convenient store, Manna From Above Store. She is continuing education through online courses. Prince is now enrolled in Subic Bay Baptist Bible Institute and is working our livelihood farm as well. They are both hardworking and a blessing to the children’s home.
One way of encouraging our children is helping them pursue their passions. As much as we would like for all our kids to be pastors and missionaries we know they won’t be that. We truly believe that we do need more Christian entrepreneurs, Christian educators, Christian lawyers, Christian artists, etc. With that being said, one of our most favorite moments we like to look back on is winning the community mural wall competition.
Our Miko is proudly painted on one of the walls always seen near our police station. This wall was painted by one of our kids and mentored by our art teacher in the academy.
We stand firmly and believe that when God is the center everything else will follow. We are proud and excited to report to you several of our children who fully surrendered their lives to Christ – Joseph, Lorie Guevarra, who was one of the newest additions to the family last year, and siblings Dandan and Prince, who have been in the children’s home for 15 years.
We truly felt the love this Christmas! To wrap up the year we had one of the best Christmases in Subic Bay Children’s Home last year. There were so many locals, motorcycle crews, and friends from the states who helped us allow the kids to feel extra special. There were so many candies, clothes, boxes of food, and other essentials.
Our goal for this year, 2022, is to build a new medical clinic and equip one of our junior staff to be overseer for the clinic. We believe with this strategy we can save more money and prevent ailment or sickness from turning worse as we will be able to administer proper care before it gets to the point where we will have to take children to the hospital. We have started building the clinic and we pray that God sees it fit for us to have this done rapidly.
Ever since the pandemic hit, child exploitation increased at a very high rate. We are affected and feel the need to do more for these children. We pray that God will direct us to more children we can help and save from this horrendous lifestyle. Thank you so much for your support and burden to help more children in need of a home.
In Christ’s Name,
Your Family @ Subic Bay Children’s Home
