By Susan Oertle - President, Bernasol Educational Foundation
The Bernasol Educational Foundation's Philippines team is busy preparing for our upcoming trip in August, which your generous donations will make possible! We are very excited to be bringing hope to the Aeta tribe through the building of a cacao plantation. This project will create many local jobs and will provide sustainability to the tribe for years to come!
Our team is working both here in the U.S. and through local contacts in the Philippines to gather supplies and coordinate laborers for this project. The land is ready, and we can't wait to break ground in August! We are also planning our Vacation Bible School program for the tribe's children and a conference for the women. As the whole tribe is excited about the new cacao plantation project, we are using the themes of planting, growing, and harvesting for our Bible teaching programs. We are very excited to embark on this journey to change both the physical and spiritual lives of the Aeta tribe.
We appreciate your continued support of our efforts and invite you to share this opportunity to be lifechangers with your friends and family! Please stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to our departure date and then throughout our trip.
