and if I forgot someone, please remind me…Thank you.
With John Power, Pastor Eugene and Mon Cenia.
Although the total amount was only P9,300…I wrote on my pdc P10,000.
I surrendered that pdc to the owner of that institution, Mommy Lita Fullerton. Finally, I met her in person.
I promised also that if I could finish the 2nd bdm, I will give my first ever medal in running to a deserving ‘chosen children.’ Here, this young teenager was the MVP for their sportsfest and so I’m so glad to give my medal to her.
Biking from Laguna to Silang is not easy and I thank my companions for being with me as I accomplished a small thing for those ‘chosen children.’
I’m happy to do a thing like this. And those people who supported this ‘worthy cause’ may the Lord returns to you the amount you gave a hundredfold!
I salute those people behind this Foundation. You are the true heroes. And you have my respect from now on…
And to you, Chosen Children…you taught me to see life in a new perspective. Life is beautiful in spite of trials and sufferings.
This was the greatest gift I received for my birthday…that I was able to contribute ‘small thing’ with the help of my sponsors and donors to this great Foundation. And to You Lord, I bring back all the Glory!
God be Praised!
