Preparing for the High School Harvest
The beginning of another school year draws near. In preparation, the Christian Community volunteers gathered at the La Union National High School for a 2-day clean-up drive. The drive is geared towards creating an environment that is conducive to learning.
|Louvie Magat: happy to serve|
Louvie Magat, a volunteer and a father enthuses that he is happy to work for God. "Ang Diyos ay gumagawa rin para sa atin, kaya masaya ako na maglingkod din sa Kaniya," he adds. ("God works in our lives and I am happy to work for Him, too.")
Ma'am Banao, an Araling Panlipunan teacher, explains the purpose of cleaning up the school prior to the opening of classes. "Kung maayos ang atmosphere, kung maayos ang silid-aralan, maayos din ang takbo ng isip ng mga mag-aaral." ("If we have an atmosphere conducive to learning, the students will think more clearly.") "We want to create an impression that learning is fun!"

Roxanne Fontanilla, another Sadulawit volunteer shares that her purpose in helping out is to campaign for Jesus---to save souls and make disciples. She could not help but be encouraged by the resident teachers' various comments about the team's "Go,go, go!" attitude. She is happy that the people witnessed the DNA of SFCC which is the DNA of Jesus. "Pagod, pero andun yung saya. (Despite being physically tired, the joy is there.) Through Brigada Eskwela 2014, we are able to give God the glory."
