Remember when I wrote about yearly Christmas tradition that includes a visit to an elementary school for a Christmas gift-giving day? Banahaw Elementary School is a public school that has students in grades first through sixth in Norzagaray, Bulacan of Central Luzon (Region III). The school has 5 instructional rooms and 1 non-instructional rooms. Sadfully, none of the rooms has a dependable supply of electricity. With 138 students last year, class size is around 28 students. Lorie Floresca is principal of the school.
And so we joined a group of friends from church, Victory Nova, to bring the blessing of prayer and encouragement to students, teachers and their families.
As soon as the day started, kids lined up too excited to receive and SHARE. It was so overwhelming to observe kids rush to their moms, brothers, sisters to share what they have received on hand. There were countless people who willingly joined in and be part of this yearly outreach. Please know that your gift will go a long way to the hearts of the kids and their families who believe God for a better future.
Among the highlights included a puppet and kids’ show performed by excellent puppeteer Sam Fuentes. It was a joy to see smiles on kids’ and parents’ faces despite their difficulties in life. It was also heartwarming to see them celebrate Jesus’ birthday party as we all get reminded what Christmas should be about.
