The Columban Vocation-Mission team in Mindanao continues with its regular gathering and monthly reflection/recollection with the mission partners.

Last December 9, 2018, I had the privilege of joining the Columban mission partners in Pagadian in their Christmas Outreach to the residents of San Pedro. The group rendezvoused at Sto. Niño Cathedral before heading to the community.

This activity was in partnership with PAGKAKA (Pagdakayo Kasamahan Ma Kauman which stands for “Unity of Sama People in Community”), a non-government organization established in 2006. The organization strives to prepare Sama Kabinga-an children, aged 3-4 years old, before teaching them Islamic values, Mathematics, Reading and Writing in Kindergarten.  

We were greeted by Ms. Mohaya S. Pua, the program coordinator and two of her teachers, Ms. Rasam Disuma and Asiba Sulani. They were the ones who organized the gathering of the mothers and their children from the tribe Sama Kabinga-an. The mission partners shared a simple lunch with the community and gave out Christmas gifts such as packs of groceries and toys for the children.
