Hello everyone,

Blessed are we have been called by God to serve Him and His people by the gift of music. It is very nice to know that such ministry helps us to find God our way to God and eventually lead others to the very same experience of joy.

Here in Masinloc Zambales, music has taken a different meaning, it has been an instrument for many young people to find God amidst their poverty, broken homes and personal woundedness.

Last 2002, along with the host of young people, we have established a choral group aiming not just on musical excellence. We have viewed music ministry as a portal where our young people engage in many anti-social activities, poverty will be helped.

We believe that as we serve God, we are also bounded by our obligation to our fellowmen. Little-by-little, all the choir members apart from their musical training are encourage to take a yearly retreat, psychological counseling(may mga kaso po kami ng mga nag-attempt mag-suicide) and other formations. On 2003, we are able to have a tied up with the nearest university for their college scholarship.

The Lord God has been very good to us, so far despite many odds and stakes, we continue with our ministry and music had been an instrumental for many young people to find their way back to God and the same time, able to have a good chance of fighting for their future despite the fact that they came from an unlikely background.

We are looking forward to be of help to many more young people, presently we are rebuilding the choir with its new members since many of them are already working out of town since they graduated from college(marami na po kaming napagraduate sa awa ng Diyos despite many financial constrain)At basta kaya pa namin eh ipagpapatuloy namin ang aming nasimulan

For all of us in this same ministry, let me share my warm gratitude for knowing you all. The ministry is hard but the joy of having a companions on the journey lightens it a little.


May God be glorify above all else!
