I was a little surprised but thrilled when I saw a newspaper when I was in Manila in September this year.
The headlines were remarkable.
THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF NOT BREASTFEEDING
From a country that allows Infant Formula advertisment to blazen boldly across their billboards and Televisions I was suitably impressed.
There were over 6 pages fully dedicated to Breasfeeding !
Also Philippine stars and VIPs supporting and advocating breastfeeding both men and women!
Great links and advice, great images, even images showing breastfeeding TODDLERS.
I know God has His eye on the Philippines and I am thrilled that He is stiring people even the famous ones to embrace truth, education and Him!
There is a battle going on for the Children of this nation. I believe these are only prophetic steps in the right direction, it shows me that the Leaders and Influencers of the Nation are leaning into change, they also know it is up to them (Nationals) to bring true and lasting change NOT foreign missions and NGO’s the truth is change MUST eventually come from within.
Am I doing myself out of a job? Absolutely
My desire is not to be needed.
