Hello friend! How are you?
As we all know that the year 2020 has been affected all of us by the Pandemic. But the story does not stop from there, there are so many GREAT things still that happened for the year 2020.
I wanted to write this update to you and I wanted to bring encouragement and be a blessing for you. God is faithful and He is always going to be. I wanted to share some highlights of what God has been done in the whole year of 2020.
Last January 2020, I got privileged to come abroad to Bali, Indonesia, and take 6 months course at the University of the Nation doing Humanities and International Study. Staying and studying abroad was very intense. I couldn’t believe that I can make it to the end of the course. I was there from the beginning of 2020 until the lockdown happened last April. During my lockdown in Bali, I was able to contribute and have a chance to work with some big projects of the schools. Being lockdown in Bali, helped me to figure out what I wanted to do once I get back, and with the helped of close friends and the guidance from above I was able to come up with the idea of doing something in the community
Last, June 10, 2020, I was able to come back to the Philippines with the helped of the Philippine government. Stayed in quarantine for 48 hours and got a negative result of my swab test. June 12, 2020, I am reunited with my family and friends! After 2 weeks of rest, meetings, and transitioning. I was able to start working with the vision that God gave me for the community.
Community Youth Development.
June 28, I had an opportunity to invest in the lives of five young guys, who are currently working as productive and contributing adult to the ministries. We started meeting every night doing fellowship and talked about life. As we come and meet every day we also prayed that God will multiply us. After multiple meetings, God multiplies us into 70 youths, and those youth are involved with every program that we device last couple of months ago.
July 4, 2020, we have our first meeting with the families attended by 21 moms by God’s grace. With the helped of nanay and tatay Migraso, we're able build a relationship with those parents and we are so excited for more. So far we have had 4 meetings with the parents. We are so excited about more having more meetings as we come to 2021.

August 12, 2020, I had a meeting with the youths who are passionate and let God used their full potential in ministering in the lives of people in the community. 37 youths are currently involved in the projects that we have in the community.

Let the Little Children Come to Jesus. (School in a Box)
September 2, 2020, we started ministering with children in the community by helping them with their school modular.
