Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Selected Photos from the 4th Day of the Medical Mission of Love, 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.
