January 18, 2017 San Mateo Rizal - Dear brethren, Our Lady of Banneux ANCOP Community is a glimpse of Heaven on earth...similar to the description of the early Christian communities. The community is situated on top of a hill with lush vegetation, clean air and a million dollar city view. Everyone there is CFC, SFC, YFC, KFC, HOLD, and SOLD (CFC stickers not in cars because they do not have any but in the doors of their houses) helping out to build the structures and keep the place clean and secure.
CFC Household meetings are commonplace. All the kids approached us to show respect (pagmamano)... Tito Sam (community resident) proudly showed us a picture of her daughter who graduated cum laude via the ANCOP CSP and is now working at GMA 7. CFC volunteers Tito Warren (engineer), Tito Rollie (architect) and Tito Bobby (CFC West B Head) were there to show us around, all with servants' hearts after God's own heart. The multi-purpose hall is beautiful with a huge crucifix as the main centerpiece. The dwelling places are well built thanks to various donations from CFC USA and Canada, among others. The ladies prepared a lunch feast for us al fresco with a killer view!
There are more structures to be built. The top priority is the construction of the permanent roof of the church. My prayer is for ANCOP USA to continue to support this special project until completion.
Thank you dear ANCOP USA brethren for all your contributions of time talent and treasure in making this beautiful ANCOP Community a reality.
