  • July 15, 2009 -- Disaster Awareness Lecture and Gift Giving in Tatalon, Quezon City. The Committee is chaired by Ms. Prima Fortalleza, President, Federation of Baptist Women.

  • August 15, 2009 -- Seminar on Home and Family Life with Livelihood program, chaired by Ms. Guia del Rosario, President of Philippine Lutheran Women’s League.

  • Month of September is unforgettable because of typhoon Ondoy that caused flood to nearby Metro Manila towns and cities. Then followed by typhoon Pepeng, Ramil and Santi. All these caused damages to North and South Central Luzon hence I tried to ask calamitous aid from ACWC, ICFLC and NCCP. Through God’s help ACWC gave $1,500 and ICFLC $2,000 and NCCP gave relief packages. Thanks to the assistance through Ms. Shu Wen Chiang and Ms. Cora Tabing Reyes. May God give more blessings.
