Plus ONE Visit Brings Good Cheer to Children!

link to galleryThe 51 members and officers of Plus ONE of Japan, came for their much-awaited Annual Tour to the CMS Children’s Village last September 20 to 22, 2013. Their visit coincided with their 10th Anniversary as one of CMSP’s faithful mission partners. Their visit began with a Fellowship Meeting with ED Dinah U. Macaranas on ministry and program updates. The following day, the children gave a rousing welcome program especially for the newcomers, followed by the Mall Tour where all the children were treated to a shopping and lunch at SM Dasmariñas. It was an early Christmas treat for the all children who happily chose their own presents. Plus ONE members spent much time playing with the children. Later on, the children presented an evening program of songs, dances and the handsplay which was dedicated to Plus One’s 10th anniversary. The annual fellowship lunch followed the Sunday Thanksgiving Service. The afternoon came the special treat for the children with Plus One’s Japanese ‘Summer Festival’ – wonderful version of the traditional ‘fiesta’ or ‘carnival’ with lots of food, fun and surprises for everyone. The day was capped with the group’s special presentation. Praise God, the joyous celebration was not affected by the heavy rains… Looking forward to the next visit!

Sports and Social Activity Center Inauguration

link to galleryThe inauguration of the Sports and Social Activity Center was indeed an answered prayer! Children were often left with no options but just to stay home during rainy seasons and hot weathers for many years, hence wished and prayed for a place where they can have activities rain or shine. It was made possible with the big help of Mr. Jaime Zobel de Ayala, who graciously attended the inauguration; and upon the introduction of Dr. Ursula Von der Leyen, German Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, whose daughter, Donata, was a volunteer at the Children’s Village. The event hosts were Ovy Jimenez of CH and Pastor Keith Quebral.
