Excited About our First Christmas GIft Giving at GPDNHS

I am excited for the forty students who will be receiving Christmas gifts on Monday when we have our first Christmas Gift Giving at Gen. Pio del Pilar National High School (GPDNHS). The recipients are the student beneficiaries of the high school's feeding program which our church supports in partnership with our mother church and Manna Worldwide.

The gift pack's contents

The Christmas gift pack

The gifts we will be giving are nothing like vacation packages to maui, in fact they are just simple gifts that can help the students who are part of the feeding program to have something extra to eat for Christmas eve.

The gift pack consists of spaghetti noodles, spaghetti sauce, a pack of powdered strawberry flavored juice, a small can of corned beef and an instant noodle pack. It's worth isn't even above P150/ $3 but as the one who meets with them in our weekly Bible study, I felt burdened to give something to each of them for Christmas.

I have been sharing God's promised gift of eternal life through Christ in the past three weeks and am excited to have received some professions of faith. I hope that this ministry will open doors for us to meet the family of the students for us to build a relationship with them and find an opportunity to share the gospel to them as well.

If you wish to sponsor a gift pack for a student, please contact me through What you share will mean a lot to high school students in GPDNHS' feeding program.
