After attending a child protection seminar in Cebu City last spring, Pastor Randy repeated the seminar in various towns in Samar. This has included meeting with government officials like mayors, policemen, military men, and business leaders, and being a part of NGO (non-governmental organization) non-profit grant activities. He has also been involved with tree planting efforts to green up the community.
His latest endeavor is to couple Bible studies with free computer literacy classes, which he announced on his radio program, and had 30 enroll. This is what he has to say about it:
Our local NGO group here in Samar received 7 personal computers, 1 LCD projector, plus tripod of LCD. Among our group I am the only one with knowledge to teach and train about basic or fundamental computer literacy. It is designed to help out of school youth, especially children at risk, adults and anyone interested to learn about computer. I announce it in my radio show and a lot of people come to enroll. We have 3 hour sessions, twice a week. It is three months program to get issued a certificate. Curriculum was furnished from the donors of computer, from MICROSOFT and the VISAYAN FORUM foundation. My son Jordan & I will run the said program. Jordan will teach a basic subject and set up all the units of computer. I’m in charge of computer fundamentals, including trouble-shooting. The program is all free. The biggest thing we can grab from this opportunity is sharing God’s Word. There is a specific 30 minute time slot for spiritual enhancement. Sis. Lordy also helps. So it alternates between the three of us. We will be very busy these days, since we are still doing Bible Studies, and morning & evening daily radio programs.
