March 2009 – April 2010
The first house was a rental on Cabreros street. I was working at a home based call center job and I started feeding the children. Later I would look up old school friends on Facebook and they wanted to help.

I worked for a year doing home based call center work, I rcvd 500 .00 a month salary and I began feeding children in the immediate area of our house. In April 2010 I was chatting with a childhood friend in the USA and from that conversation we started sponsoring children here.
I would take the children out to eat and its something they never got to do. They were very excited and we always had a great time
One of the things I did was take the children to the malls here. Many of the children had never been to a mall or out to eat
Passing out rice has always been something that we have done.

Our first trip to the beach to go swimming. It was August 28, 2010. I uploaded this photo at 5:55 pm . I was still in the pink cloud back then, the battle had not begun. God knew I was not ready yet. The first year was a wonderful time, the most wonderful time of my life. As we went down the road, the light of Jesus literally surrounded the bus.
Attending church, we attended other churches and then we started our own church

We started supplying the children what they needed when school started.

In 2011 we moved to a place for a short time, but the owner did not want the children coming over so we moved to Isla Mahilom and rented a house there that had a yard. This video is from that yard.
