            On Sr. Cecy’s first travel to Kibangay, she was right away in mission. Julius, the son of our tenants was hospitalized due to intestinal obstruction. Thanks to her medical advice, she is a nurse by profession, we decided to have Julius be operated.

Thank you to Sr. Ma. Estela’s donors, Bishop Jose Cabantan, and other donors who helped us become good news to Julius and his family.

We are also very grateful to both Assumption Antipolo and Assumption College San Lorenzo for being good news to us!4

We also want to thank Sr. Mary Ann Azanza, Sr. Clare Joseph, Ambassador Bienvenido Tan Jr., and our other benefactors and friends who continue to partner with us in our mission. God bless you abundantly!

In February 2017, our student Floramie Juan had a motorcycle accident on her way to school that caused the amputation of her left foot. Her education was a great concern for her family and for us, since according to her mother, her daughter’s main joy is going to school. How will she be able to go to school from her house that is located on top of a steep mountain?

Again, God manifested that He hears the cry of the poor. He sent us Mr. Tan, a man who considers his accident as his mission.

We entrust this school year to the guidance and accompaniment of the Holy Spirit. We also welcomed our new Parish Priest, Fr. Ariel Abucay, in his first Mass with us.8God bless you always, Class ’89 of Assumption San Lorenzo, for generously preparing and sending school supplies for our students. Indeed, you are good news to our students and their parents.
