Dear Missionary Friends: February of 2009

Why we do what we do!

This is a picture of a child in one of the areas in metro Manila that I visited in January of 2009. A new feeding site program was begun in this poor squatter, shanty village by RSM for the 50 to 70 malnourished children living here. RSM currently has 10 active feeding sites in and around Manila under the loving care of our RSM regional managers, Boy and Virginia Valencia. We hope to open another 10 feeding sites in Manila soon.

The child in this picture is 11 years old and is playing with a black piece of thread. After I took this picture of him, he offered the thread to me as a gift. He has been suffering from malnutrition for years. His cleft palate is a result of his mother’s malnutrition while she was pregnant with him. Now, as a young adolescent, he continues to suffer from the ravages of malnutrition. His mother is in her late 30’s and is battling breast cancer. She and her other six children live between two buildings. This picture reminds me of how some of the children in the Philippines were only hanging on by a thread in life before our feeding site programs began in 2006 with the donated food from Feed My Starving Children.

I Thank the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all of you working so hard to help these innocent children, you are their hands!

Your brother and sister in Christ,  Jerry and Barbara
