Not many people would volunteer to leave the comfort of the U.S.A. to live in a third world country. Even fewer would go and minister in an area that is probably one of the world's largest garbage dumps, toxic and polluted. Pastor Jack did just that, feeling the call of God to reach out to those poor souls that try to eke out a living in the dregs of the Payatas dump. Pastor Jack and his lovely family have a heart to serve the poorest of the poor, opening a free medical clinic, sending children to summer camp, giving clothing and food from their own limited resources. I know Pastor Jack will frequently sacrifice a comfort we take for granted if he can be a blessing to someone else.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The smiling face of children who for a week can get three meals a day, be able to enjoy just being kids without hunger pangs. The reports of people who have come to know Jesus Christ as Savior!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Shake some money loose from people and get it more financial support!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The faithfulness of Pastor Jack and family, and the positive impact made on the poorest of the poor, especially the children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated, humble and positive

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open a hospital, school, orphanage, help provide job training.

Ways to make it better...

I had more to give

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financial constraints to accomplish all that there is a vision for

One thing I'd also say is that...

Of course Pastor jack being from Brooklyn makes him inherently tough, smart and capable. Youse know?

Jack & Malou have been very good friends of mine for about ten years. I was there when they got the call from God to go to Payatas, I asked him why do you think God would call you to this garbage dump, and he told me that God had really placed this location in his heart, and he could no longer ignore those poor kids growing up in the disease riden filth. He had to go and let them know they had a loving God. He also knew he had to do something about the sickness there, so he figured out how to get the medical clinic going. Many times he gives from his own pocket to help those who need medecal attention. He has plans to enlarge the clinic, but funds are short, but he is trusting God to meet the need. His wife Malou is working with the children teaching them school lessons, so that they can excell when they grow up. Jack and Malou give of themselves unselfishly, and sometimes goes without so others can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I work the Riverside end of this mission, I make sure the donations get to Jack and Malou. I have seen the results from the very beggining, and watched it grow, with very minimal support, this is truley a mission with God's blessing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching the children grow in the Lord, and staying healther because of the medical clinic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build the medical clinic, and compound needed for this area.

Since 1981, right after graduating in college, i was involved in non government organization: entailed me to do massive research, voluntary work in the far flung provinces not even electricity and clean water is available.Much to say doing fund raising for children's programs. I been a witnessed to these "non profit organization" but it is only here at Payatas MIssion Outreach , i have seen dedicated people willing to share their time,skills, love,resources and most especially the word of GOd. Barely,less than a year in this organization, i truly feel the amazing grace of our LOrd giving wisdom to touch people lives, who lives in most depressed area in the Philippines. With the leadership of Ptr. JAck Wilson, people here are fed not only physically but most of all spiritually. Various programs and projects are done for the benefits of the people here,and lately, the birth of Payatas Baptist Clinic, offering free consultation. But still there is no such thing as FREE LUNCH. The clinic is in dire needs of volunteer doctors, financial support to pay rental and other operational cost. MOre often than not, medicines are given free to patients who cant really afford to buy. Let us help build Payatas: support and show you care, and this will be given backto you a hundred folds.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Yes for less than a year, i have been experiencing tremendous blessings, by being involved in the projects of Payatas Mission Outreach. And ican go anytime to the Payatas Baptist Clinic for my regular check up at no expense at alland avail cheap medicine

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Mobilize people in the area: to implement its Vision Mission GOals (VMG), trained people to raise funds, perhaps create a peoples cooperative wherein community members will manage themselves.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoyed working with the less privilege people in the community..i can see the inner beauty in their spirit as they are doing this for HIS glory!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Staff and volunteers here work as a team, one family. It is always what they can give and offer to others. Always visible whenever you need them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Wow..its VMG (Vision, Mission, Goals) will be attained: build a Payatas Baptist community: comprising a decent building for church, cinic, school and a self sufficient community!

Ways to make it better...

Each member will be given clear role, and perhaps i myself can perform better if i do it in my own initiative..and would not wait for Ptr. Jack to call my attention/

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

to continue to operate in the whole community in uplifting its moral, economic and spiritual life, not only relying on supporters donations but to be a SELF RELIANCE organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if this organization has enough funding it can hone the skills of members to provide decent lives, God fearing individuals!
