The Lord is indeed marvelous…on our first emissary stop, everything was smooth and successful. MOU is in progress and we will be on our way to serve the underprivileged children with facial deformities in the province of Capiz and well, why not, how about the whole island of Panay.
The people in Roxas City are so warm and we had a great time. Thank you Dr. Julius Arches (Anesthesiologist), who surprisingly surprised us hehehehe It was so really great to see him..and looking well ha! To the chief of hospital of RMPH – Dr. Cellini Bauson for her excitement to received us, to Dr. Ed Delfin (ENT) who would be part of our taghoy team soon…to our five (5) volunteer Nurses who came from Aklan to see our two Doctors (Jaime and Jerry) from Colorado…. we missed some, but it was all a quality of time and effort. Of course, we are grateful to our local Rotary partners – Pres. Jerry Lames, PP Ruben and associate sec Weng was also present.
Our next stop last nite was in principle fine, however, we just need some clarifications as to the post-operation care of our future patients, as the next taghoy clinic will be crossing the river to Guimaras Island? I thought, if we have committeed volunteer Doctors, it is not impossible. It takes a commitment of heart to volunteer and serve. Of course, we are curious as to who will be those people in the team soon. We will do our best to persuade and sell the ideas, for there are more children with facial deformities in this island.
Thank you to PDG Emma Nava for arranging our ground itinerary in the city. To PDG Toto for the sumptous meal at Ocean City and for the future matching grant project (wink) and to Dr. Christien Nufable (ENT), she was another excited soon to be volunteer for Taghoy. Amazing goodness!
So far, the trip is wonderful. My two wonderful companions are not so young, however, with their vigor to serve our Filipino children, go ng go lang hehehe…..amazing strength, eh. Syempre, ako ay dakilang alalay lang hehehe
I thanked the Lord for the first two days of our great trip to this island. We have more places to traverse and we offer to HIM the success of all these emissary visit.
Will keep you posted on our next stop.
To God be the Glory!
