HI! My name is Ursel D. Murillo-Laureno. I am from Iligan City. I am a school principal of Bethany Baptist Academy of Iligan. A Registered Nurse and Licensed teacher.
My story started when I went to volunteer as short term missionary nurse/teacher in Palawan under the leadership of Doc Wingky Villanueva. In fact, I first discovered my love for teaching because of this experience, and pursued Education since then.
There I first met this lovely boy, Prime. I first met him way back 2011 as shown in the first pic when I think he was 6 yrs old. I fell in love with this little boy instantaneously and have been supporting his education and his (Batak tribe) community since 2012.

I love him like a mother loves his son and his community I always cherish. I have been coming almost every year just to visit them and was even scheduled to go back there again last April but COVID had another plan. I know COVID has really took its toll on us, how much more in a far flung area where you have to cross 11 rivers just to get there.
On my birthday, I want to raise $1,000 (P50,000) for Prime and his community. The goal is to reach this amount on or before December, so it can be a Christmas love gift for everyone there.
If the current health situation would allow me, I want to be there to personally give them P500 worth of food pack per family. If not, my friends in Palawan will do it for me. I assure you that money spent for Prime and his community will be worth every centavo and proper liquidation of expenses will be posted here or sent to every partners.
God will surely bless yo more as you bless one Batak(name of tribe) Family this Christmas. Thank you so much and God Bless you more!
