Every summer all United Methodist local churches in the Philippines conducts religiously a teaching ministry for children called Vacation Church School 1 - 2 week of study about God and the faith. This summer Pacita UMC through its Christian Education ministries held its VCS at the church and also at the Southern Heights Mission. It was one of the ministries of the young people of the church to be involve in this teaching ministry and care for the children. The women of the church provided the snacks for the children and its volunteer teachers.
When I was 19 years old, I was deeply involved in "movement politics." I sat up late into the night for strategy meetings, hitchhiked a hundred miles or so to meet with the regional team, trained speakers, planned media events that won the entire front page of our city's tabloid press, risked arrest (and did spend some time in a county jail) ... all for the sake of the political movement I had committed myself to.
