Throughout my time away I was constantly amazed by the incredible commitment that the Soh family (the founders of Buckets of Jesus) have to the mission, and the hard work that they and their family show in coming back to the Philippines every year to continue the mission. Thanks to them and their work, thousands of children across the world have received not only material goods but a sense of love from people across the world. I will forever remember the pure joy on the children’s faces when they opened their school bags.
Though there were challenging moments, such as being confronted by the crammed and unsanitary living conditions many people live in, I walk away knowing that the impact of the school supplies has only just began.
Going on this mission has reminded me of all the blessings I have received from God, and has inspired me to want to live a simpler life ever more devoted to Jesus.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have helped me and my fellow classmates to be able to volunteer and go on mission to the Philippines with Buckets for Jesus. Thank you to all the people who donate time and money into this missionary group. Every bit that you have done is such a blessing. Being on the ground when the BFJ school supplies were handed out allowed me to see the importance of the work that BFJ is doing. All people should have access to education, which often cant be done without the requisite school supplies. BFJ seeks to provide for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access education. So thank you so much for all that you do!
Above all, praise be to God.
