In the summer of this year Steven Black who is a professional photographer in Scotland and the son of a dear friend of mine Don Black held an exhibition of the photographs in Scotland's capital Edinburgh that he took on a visit to Cebu in late 2009. Steven generously promised to donate part of the voluntary donations collected from those who viewed his exhibition to Bethany. Last month his father Don returned to Cagayan de Oro and handed over the magnificent sum of PHP 14,000.00 from Steven to be put towards the expansion of the Rubber Plantation Project.

A big thank you to Steven for a wonderful gesture and its hoped that your photographic career brings you back to the Philippines one day to see the Rubber Plantation Project through your camera lens. http://www.stevenblackphotography.co.uk/


Well it’s getting near that time of the year when Christmas is almost upon us and the New Year beckons. Just where has the year gone to?

I don’t know if it’s an age thing but time is flying especially now I’m retired from full time working. To be honest I’ve never been busier than I have been since coming to reside in the Philippines and I thought retirement was just a long vacation.

Never mind I have enjoyed ever minute of helping Bethany as well as helping out my wife Marilou in the other charity work that she is involved in.

So it leaves me to say I hope all my readers have a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and happy New Year for 2011. I would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped the children of Bethany financially and those that gave their moral and spiritual support as without your help Bethany could not exist.

God Bless you all.
