This is Ugelyn Roxas, she is 21 years old and her husband Joey is 22. This is their second child, they have a small daughter who lives in the province with the grandmother. They came to manila hoping for a better life, planning to send for their daughter when they found success. Things have been very tough for this young family, but thanks to a birthing better babies sponsor from Australia things are improving! Baby Jerome is a healthy and chubby little boy, he is being breast fed and is thriving. Each Tuesday morning we have a bible study in Ugelyns tiny little house and two weeks ago the 6 people who attended gave their hearts to Jesus. Opportunities and blessings opened to many because of BBB! This week we are doing a big deworming in their area, so more opportunity to bless more people. Thanks to all the BBB sponsors
Saw this cute little girl out near a beach area when we were going a bible study.
We would call it a crate, but here, it’s a cot…
This little guy is Norberto, he is only two and lives with his pregnant mum and older brother, his dad works away. Crazy how accidents happen! He was being nursed by a young girl of about ten, a tiny little thing herself, and she bent done to lift the lid off the rice pot and up rushed the steam. It is not a serious burn, and we have the cream to treat it daily so no infection gets in and the scarring is minimal,,,,,but is is quite painful and in an awkward spot. He cries when l put the cream on as the cream is very cold, so l don’t think he likes me right now. Bless him!
Christine’s world in Baseco is a lot about bandages, burns and babies. She is simply always helping someone. She is so much more patient with people than I am. She always has time for everyone.
She obviously does many other things than those mentioned above, but she is much more pastoral than I am. I get the title, but she has the gift.
She is a mum to hundreds.
Chris is an inspiration in so many ways. She was not young when the call to missions came, she has a few minor health issues, grand kids in Australia…plenty of reasons to not do what she is doing, but away she went, and she is such a blessing to so many.
Anyone, at any stage in Life, can follow the call of Jesus.
This beautiful young girl is Rachel Montilla, she is all of 16 years old. She and her husband, John Bata are the very proud parents of Johnrich.

Thanks Pauline and team for your support, another success story.
