First in 2014: Rain or Shine Street Feeding and Tutorial

Last year (2013), it was such a big blessing for all of us volunteers of Mission Partners of Mary for we were able to successfully made a street feeding and tutorial for the street kids of Davao city. This year, we're excited to see and meet again the kids. It's been 3 weeks since we had not conducted a feeding and tutorial with them.

Last January 11, a rainy Saturday evening we had our first street feeding and tutorial for the year 2014. Only few kids attended because they have no idea that we're coming and rain was hardly pouring.
