ANCOP AUSTRALIA AMBASSADORS JOURNEYED THEIR 4TH PHILIPPINE IMMERSION FOR 2019
Friday, January 18, 2019
CFC Australia kicked-off their 4TH Ancop Australia Ambassador Immersion this year from January 9 to 16. The ANCOP Ambassadors composed of members from Couples for Christ, Youth For Christ, Singles For Christ, and Handmaids of the Lord had their chance to visit ANCOP sites in the country and attended various CFC and ANCOP activities.
This year, the Immersion program was spearheaded by Bro. Nick Vargas and Sis. Cynthia Argana from New South Wales together with 13 more ambassadors from the different states in Australia, such as Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Cairns, & Darwin. The Ambassador program is done every two years where they learn about the mission to answer the cry of the poor in a 3-month campaign. It is also to personally experience and understand the lives of the poor and to realize how they can do more in helping them.
The immersion started with an ANCOP Orientation at the CFC Global Mission Center (CFC GMC) then proceeded to interact with the children housed at the Bahay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres in Bustos, Bulacan. After their overnight stay at the center, they proceeded to ANCOP Vancouver Homes at Paniqui, Tarlac where they get to meet the home partners, as well as helped in the construction of on-going houses at the site. They also got a chance to experience a Cornerstone Tutorial Session at Jose Fabella Elementary School in Mandaluyong City and attended the CFC International Leaders Conference at SM Mall of Asia Arena. The Ambassadors also had a chance to meet and interact with the Program Implementing Team, parents and scholars at Our Lady of Banneux in San Mateo. The latter part of the immersion is helping as well with the construction of houses for PAR 2 Homes at Moonwalk, Parañaque City, and ended the program by attending the ANCOP-SocDev Summit at CFC-GMC on January 15.
The hearts of these ANCOP Ambassadors were surely opened up to do more in advocating the organization’s work with the poor. Caring and sharing are all possible with the help of these people who unceasingly do something to help the least, the lost and last. (CFC ANCOP Communications /pmb)
Jobless. Abroad. Alone and lonely. This was what life was like for many members of Couples for Christ (CFC) Netherlands during the first months of the COVID-19 crisis. The reality of people in need inspired CFC Country Heads Mel and Daday de Leon, together with ANCOP Heads Medel and Milen Aviles, to start the “Tulong Kapatid” program, which provided relief through door-to-door delivery of care packages as well as financial assistance to the most affected CFC members.
MANILA, Philippines — Rain or shine, on lockdown or not, we’re walking for our scholars!
