Dear Friends, we are so excited. Last week, we heard the good news that the proposal for a new van has been approved by Rotary International. We have been praying for a replacement unit for many years. The current jeepney still runs but is becoming a real safety concern as the steering is going out and the unit is no longer reliable for other than short trips.

We rejoice that the Pag-Asa Rotary Club of Davao/District 3860 has succeeded in a Rotary Matching Grant for a new van. The main US partner club is the Gustine Rotary Club of District 5220, along with several other clubs in California. Seeds of Dignity Ministries is also a partner with Rotary on this project. The cost of the van is almost P1,000,000. As a reference point, this amount is about 2/3 of our annual budget so getting a replacement causes great joy in our hearts!We look forward to a delivery celebration in December.

God is good, all the time!!!
