The Philippines School Expansion Is Complete!

To our delight, our daughter Jenna recently began working for Foundation 4Life®. Last week, she traveled with Foundation 4Life Director Tracie Kay to Manila, Philippines to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the recently completed expansion at the Dona Justa Guido Memorial School. Our hearts were touched as she texted pictures of precious children to us. Jenna was humbled by these amazing children and expressed that she didn't want to ever leave them. She also felt so much more aware of the bounteous blessings she enjoys.

The school has two new classrooms, which will be used by 120 first graders. During their stay, the 4Life group gave a backpack with school supplies to each of the first graders. And, 200 malnourished students were selected to participate in an on-going nutrition program sponsored by Foundation 4Life and Feed The Children.

Jenna and Tracie were joined at the event by many special guests, including Vice President of International Steve Apple and Feed The Children President Kevin Hagan. 4Life Philippines General Manager Eileen Tan also attended, along with several Philippines corporate employees. Many distributors came, including International Diamonds Evelyn Tactac and Frank Uy Tesy, and several Presidential Diamonds and Diamonds.

Together, we can truly change the lives of children throughout the world with Foundation 4Life projects. Thank you for the generosity of your hearts!
