Selected Photos from the 4th Day of Medical Mission, Mogpog, Marinduque
Above are selected photos during the 4th day of MI, Inc Medical Mission of Love in Mogpog as well as photos of the Statistical team with Marinduque National high school students. The Statistical team using the Access Software is headed by Marita Jao and assisted by Lito Quiazon and David E Katague. Note that David E is the son of this blogger. David E is a mission volunteer from Fair Oaks, California. About 45 high school students are involved in the data entry (of patients seen and medications prescribed and given to the poor in the six provinces of Marinduque). Except for Santa Cruz, all the five towns of Marinduque,( Boac, Gasan, Buenavista, Mogpog and Torrijos) welcomed the missioners with open hearts ,hospitable spirit and attitude. Santa Cruz municipal officials first said yes, then later said no and then change their decision to "yes" at the last minute after officers of MI, Inc showed the town officials the statistics of the number of patients served by MI, Inc from the previous mission, 2006 and 2008. Today is the mission in Santa Cruz. My wife and I decided not to serve and volunteer our time and energy to the poor of this town, based on the incident above. If we are not welcome why forced ourselves to the town whose officials do not appreciate our humanitarian efforts.
