Online ECE Training Certificate Relaunched

MMP’s Training Certificate Course in Early Childhood Care and Education was one of the services that were affected by the pandemic two years ago. There were no registrants for this program, perhaps due to uncertainties in time and resource constraints.

After two years of promotion, the program is finally available for this class online via Zoom. The first module, Bible Intro, began on April 23 and May 7, 2022, with lessons beginning on those dates. There were 12 students from different places in the Philippines, as well as Jakarta, Indonesia. The Holistic and Transformational Ministry is now the third module of the ECE Training Certificate. The number of students enrolled has grown.

We had problems, just as we would in any other online class. However, there are advantages as well, such as bringing students from many locations together to learn Childhood Education from a biblical perspective. This is one of the distinctive elements of Mission Ministries Philippines and Asian Theological Seminary’s Training Certificate.

According to the students, learning more about God and the significance of developing a stronger relationship with Him before fulfilling their duty as teachers have been humbling. “In a world of shifting views, Christian Education is steady,” noted one of the professors in the ECE modules. We are not only teachers for our pupils’ futures, but we are also teachers for their eternity.

Enrollment in the Mission Ministries ECE Training Certificate is still open. You can reach us on Facebook at MMP ece or by email at ecemodule.mmp@gmail.com, or by calling Ms. Erlyn Isidro at 09301434780.

Mission Ministries Philippines and Its Year 2021 Achievements

The school year 2021-2022 is another good year for Mission Ministries Phil. With the goodness and guidance of the Lord Almighty, MMP has successfully provided quality education and services to the academic community despite the uncertainties of the time. Pandemic did not hinder MMP from accomplishing its mission and vision. It has reached partner schools, teachers, administrators, and parents to inform them of the various services being offered by MMP.

Amidst the ongoing Pandemic, MMP gave seminars and training to its partners. For example, in February 2021, The Puppetry and Ventriloquism in Early Childhood Classroom helped schools use puppetry to teach kids and make the classroom discussion lively, even in online classes. The Early Childhood Education Levels 1 and 2 pursued and participated not only by partner schools but other schools and organizations as well. Significant refresher seminars were also held. Especially the Child Discipline in an online and face to face platform were offered twice. First in September and second in November 2021, due to special requests.

MMP also conducted seminars for parents to help them in parenting, but its primary purpose is to share the good news of salvation.

To reach more communities by partnering with individuals, organizations, and even churches, MMP held Free Orientation/ seminars last February 22, May 17, June 21, July 26, August 23, September 20, October 25, and November 29.

Building relationships among its partners is essential, especially in trying times. And to achieve this, MMP facilitated Kamustahan and Prayer Gatherings. This activity is to worship the Lord together as a family and listen to one’s journey during this pandemic season.

Another unique service MMP accomplished was connecting with another NGO, the Medical Ambassador Phil. Inc. (MAP). They facilitated seminars about the Knowledge about vaccines last March 2021 and Malusog na Kaisipan para sayo at sa iyong Komunidad – a mental health issue seminar last July 30, 2021. MAP also distributed Ivermectin, a drug believed to help in fighting covid 19. Some partners benefited from this program.

In partnership with De La Salle University, several MMP schools also availed medical supplies, first aid kits, thermometer and BP monitor, art workshops with art supplies, and cash donations for a chosen MMP partner school.

This Pandemic also opened the door of revisiting dormant projects like the feeding program of MMP. This program feeds the body and the mind as it includes either the reading tutorials, Sunday School program, or the Kidprenuer class. To date, seven partner schools benefited from this program.

Other activities: MMP and Action for Care and Development of the Poor in the Phil. (ACAP) joined venture with a 5-day seminar held last Sept. 16, 23, 24, 30, and October 1. The seminar aims to equip their parent-volunteers in their tutorial projects with the underprivileged children in the communities of Paranaque.

In line with the reading project, MMP and MLhulier, one of the largest and most reputable non-bank financial institutions, joined forces in response to the call of the Department of Education to address the reading problem in Filipino children through its program Brigada Pagbasa: Reading Remediation Training. Camarin Elementary School benefited from this venture.

De La Salle University, in its NSTP class, also partnered with MMP in its mission to reach public schools children that have difficulty in reading. Bago Bantay Elementary school benefited from this partnership.

As the Lord continues to work in MMP, The ABS- CBN show entitled G: Diaries featured MMP in its October 28, 2021 episode.

This program features individuals and organizations whose advocacies are related to eco-tourism, the environment, and community development. It is privileged to be given this opportunity. Other media exposure of MMP was in DZAS through the Memo ni Mommy program, an online radio program over 702 DZAS.

This Pandemic has hit many, especially on finances, and MMP is not excepted. On November 6, 2021, MMP administered an online Fundraising campaign. Its goal is to raise funds for the next generation of transformational leaders. It was joined by several supporters and raised an amount to continue the programs for the year.

MMP’s aim of better, effective, and efficient services to partner schools and the academic communities, the election of MMP officers was held. The goal is to work alongside MMP to advocate its mission vision and objectives. The following were the elected officers: President: Presilla Valiente, Vice President: Alice Espiritu, Secretary; Delia Casas, Treasurer: Flor Tanag, PRO: Pastora Imelda Hilamon and Cristy Montano.

The year 2021 may have been a challenging time, but God’s plan will always prevail. So it has been a fruitful year for MMP. And all made possible with the grace of God.

3rd Refresher Course – “Child Discipline in an Online and Face to Face Platform”

One of the many difficulties parents and teachers are encountering nowadays is disciplining the children.  The new normal of teaching made it more challenging for teachers to correct the behaviors of their students. To address this issue, Mission Ministries Philippines had its 3rd refresher course entitled “Child Discipline in an Online and Face to Face Platform” last October 9, 2021, facilitated by Prof. Claribel “Bing” Amihan.

Teacher Bing explained the importance of developing self-discipline in the child by explaining the rules and the benefits of following the rules. The child will be motivated to do what is right no matter how difficult and challenging it is.

The topic was divided into 4 subtopics: a) Definition of terms, b) Characteristics of Children c) Goals of Discipline d) Discipline guidelines e) Take care of the self. Teacher Bing had not only discussed the main topic about discipline but broadened it by explaining on understanding the child and the environment he or she may be in. Adding to the child’s development and how gadgets and the internet have been affecting the child.

The webinar was attended by 100 participants. And due to public request, another date was set last November 27, 2021, to cater to other participants who were not able to attend the first webinar. This was the first time MMP’s webinars had a repeat.

A Way in the Wilderness: Mission Ministries Philippines’ Journey During PANDEMIC Season

In March of  2020, the government issued a lockdown on most parts of the Philippines. What we thought of as a short-term lockdown has now gone to almost two years of unprecedented events.

This tiny bit of virus has claimed millions of lives and altered the course of life throughout the world. Everyone was affected, and education is one of them.

In the first months of lockdown, Mission Ministries Philippines still hopes that everything will return to normal.  But as the days went by, reality set in. For many who are not tech-savvy, we were all caught off guard.

Fear may have paralyzed some of us, but by the grace of God, He gave us courage, wisdom, and perseverance. The pandemic brought changes in the way we do things but we strongly believe that this should not stop our work. With limitations in meeting physically, we find ways to continue on what we are called to do, “TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION”, still meeting the needs in Early Childhood Education and strengthening families and communities whatever it takes.  So in May 2020, MMP offered its first webinar to its partners about Blended Learning and Homeschooling via zoom. Our speaker Professor Bing Amihan introduced the terms synchronous and asynchronous learning, which most of our partners were unfamiliar with. This method of teaching is being used in western countries. Though there are limitations in the Philippines, it is still applicable. This encouraged most of the partners to continue their preschool operation despite the drop of enrollees. And to further explain and help apply the knowledge learned in blended learning and homeschooling webinars, Mission Ministries supervisors piloted the practical training. The supervisors presented the strategies, materials, lesson plans, online play, and online applications the partners can use to cope with the technology adopting synchronous and asynchronous learning.   Shifting into the new platform should not deviate our developmentally appropriate practices philosophy in teaching to our students. As we learned from Prof. Bing “there are still non-negotiable principles like integration of God’s word, Christian values, and good character.

As the world started embracing the digital age, Mission Ministries Philippines explored other possible ways to continue its mission in serving our partners and our advocacy to provide better education to indigent children.

MMP’s thrust that no child is left behind is a must!!! MMP  is committed to caring for the children and shaping them into what God created them to be. Providing access to basic needs on their development and enjoying their childhood. Furthermore, the pandemic season made MMP revive its feeding program, but this time with a significant tweak in its feature, thus we call it “Feeding the Mind & the Body” (FMB), where the feeding program is integrated into the existing curriculum of MMP. MMP Partners, are given the option to integrate its feeding program with Sunday school lessons, Remedial Reading or Kidpreneur, or teaching business skills for children via the online and face-to-face platform.

Moving on…. All MMP seminars were geared toward maximizing technology in delivering quality education without compromising our philosophy. Speakers emphasized the importance of building relationships between teachers and parents as they hone their children’s potentials. Resource persons enlightened the use of technology and the danger it brings to the children. Research shows that too much exposure to screen time can hamper the brain development of children. The webinars also laid principles and ways to sustain the school operation.

With all these worries and stresses brought by the pandemic, it is a fact that many have suffered from anxieties and mental health issues. So in response, another webinar was conducted addressing this issue.

Aside from these seminars, supervising the partners was also done online. Partners were encouraged to attend the classes of the supervisors for them to observe the online classes and process them afterward. In the same way, supervisors were able to observe and coach the online classes of partners.

The pandemic may have closed many doors but new opportunities were opened to MMP by God’s grace. Mission Ministries herald to preach the gospel to the children have now intentionally reached even the parents by administering parenting seminars. These webinars not only give guidance for good parenting but most especially in preaching the gospel of salvation.

The pandemic may have momentarily thwarted the course of MMP and yet God used this to flourish and spread its roots to reach others further. Now MMP can now post a new challenging question to possible new partners. Would you like to set up or enrich your existing Early Childhood Program like Preschool, Daycare, SNP ( Supervised Neighborhood Play, Stimulation Center, After class program or tutorial program for children …. What do you prefer  ??? Face to face or On-Line?????.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.Isaiah 43:19

Raising Next Generation of Transformational Leaders – A Fundraising Campaign

In a call to continue the mission of raising children who will be the next generation of transformational leaders, Mission Ministries Philippines launched its first fundraising campaign via zoom last November 6, 2021. Friends and supporters of MMP from different parts of the world joined the said meeting.

Dr. Natalie Chan, Director of the Bethel Bible Seminary in Hong Kong gave a heartfelt message on how MMP’s mission has a great impact on her. She believes in what MMP has been doing for the last 37 years of its existence. 

The meeting also launched the MMPro Kidz Society to further the mission of reaching out to the marginalized children in our society. The project’s aim is to create a transformative change for the children and families. MMP calls for support and being an MMP Champion. The donations can make a big difference to the future generation.

The pandemic has affected MMP’s finances, hitting a deficit of $23,000.00 for the year 2021. This was the first time MMP conducted a fundraising campaign to ask its friends and supporters for help. By God’s grace, many have responded positively. In the latest report, MMP was able to raise the said amount. In addition, others are committing to be part of the MMP Pro Kids Society. In a way, fundraising campaigns is to empower the donors in giving and be a channel of blessings to others. They are called by God to be part of our journey to God’s missions.
