A kind nurse informed me that your office helps sick children. My child is two years old and he has acute leukemia. He is currently on the first phase of treament. The doctor advised me that he will need P227,278.00 for three years of treatment.I have already spent P21,850 .00, but I am finding it difficult to raise the total amount needed because I am an ordinary technician in a fishing company. Can you help us, please?

Patients from General Santos City and Sarangani and ACIM staff were among the sixty four delegates from General Santos who went to Davao City to attend the Rosary Crusade, Bioethics Conference and Procession from October 7 until October 9.
Two military trucks and 7 military men were placed at the disposal of the team through the kindness of a lieutenant who works with ACIM-Asia in delivering health services to the poor in war-ravaged communities in Southern Mindanao. The trucks and the military men were helpful in the transport of the chairs, tables, altar and Mass supplies. The military trucks took up the rear end of the procession and served to silence the hostile parish priest who had threatened to use all his power to stop the procession. A police car took the lead. So really, there was nothing that the parish priest could do. He was probably amazed at our boldness as he stood at the door of his church and silently watched the procession pass by.
The procession ended at the park where an Altar was set for Holy Mass. A couple of park maintenance personnel attended the Holy Mass. After the Holy Mass, the community gathered for a thanksgiving lunch and then parted ways.

There were seventy who attended the Mass together with the family of baby Claire. Both mother and father went to confession and received Communion. The Mass started late because the family struggled with the local superstitious customs which prohibited any movement of the body from the house before the final moment of the burial. It took long to convince the elder folks to bring the body before the altar for the Holy Mass.
Adults came forward with their questions. There were lively and hopeful discussions regarding the practice of the Catholic faith. Catechism lessons were given to the children and adults. Sick residents in the village were blessed. Houses were also blessed. As Fr. Pfeiffer went around, he gave brief sermons to the crowd following him. A group of interested residents were gathered for singing practice. Hymns for the Holy Mass were rapidly translated and taught to them. The team went home just before midnight, tired but joyful.
ACIM staff went to the village of dear Louie Jay in Kawas for the catechism visit and for their first Holy Tridentine Mass in the area. Apostles of Mary and aspirants of the Knights of Our Lady went along to assist. An altar was set up. Fr.T. Pfeiffer gave a catechism lesson for the children about the beauty of the Traditional Mass and the importance of confession. Immediately afterwards, he heard confessions. There were nine humble hearts who made their confession including the parents of Louie Jay. After an hour of confession, 30 attended the Holy Mass.
Three Apostles of Mary members, together with Fr. T. Pfeiffer, went to Fatima 39 village to visit a bedridden patient for her confession. Surprisingly, she was already up and about when the team arrived. Still, she made her confession. Days before this visit, the Apostles of Mary members had prayed at her bedside and assisted her in preparing for her confession. Her family had been fearing that she would die soon as she was no longer eating well and was too weak to move.
Afterwards, the team proceeded to the public cemetery in Uhaw to bless the grave of a mission patient who died some months before. The priest also blessed other graves.
Thank you for the love and care!
A woman in crisis came to the office with a desperate request: can she leave her children in the office? She had nowhere to go, and did not know what to do... Today she is repairing her house and is looking forward to bringing her children back home. Deo gratias.
|The children stayed in the office for some days while the mother received crisis counseling. |
