I have spent 27 years as a missionary (Christian Psychologist) in the Philippines where I served as Director of Manila Counseling Center and Safe Place, a ministry to street children. I was first contacted by Jack and Malou before they made the decision to begin a ministry in Manila. I am so glad they have chosen to devote their lives here! Few people have the heart and soul to minister in an area like Payatas. I have visited the church many times, speaking at their first anniversary celebration to a packed house. What a great day that was! I consider Jack and Malou close friends, like family. They work among the poorest of the poor in Manila within sight of one of the largest garbage dumps in the world. The personify the best model of the modern urban missionaries in a city of 14 million people. The call of God is strong in their lives. They display Christ-like compassion for all. As evidence of their care they opened a free medical clinic on a shoestring budget and Faith that is a beacon of hope to a hopeless community! They send children to summer camp, generously give clothing and food, often from their own table. Jack and Malou are the "real deal", and I can recommend their work as an eye witness with the greatest level of enthusiasm possible.

The Great!

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

Manila for several years as a fellow missionary as described in my review. They deserve this award like few other minstries do!

I met Pastor Jack last year when we were doing a story about garbage mountain in Payatas area. The condition of the people living in the area are really heart wrenching and witnessing the challenging works of Payatas Mission Outreach just to provide some sort of sanctuary to the people there is just amazing and at the same time inspiring. We filmed the story and it reached some viewers in CBS. In as much as my experience with this organization is fleeting, I hope to help them more by passing on the story whenever there is an opportunity so people may know how important it is to support groups like this.

The Great!

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

seeing how the out-of-school youth in Payatas somehow gain valuable education through this mission. His services are flocked by people and I saw volunteers giving food as well to the children.

Ways to make it better...

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

love to go back and film them again. in fact i am doing another story pitch to a singaporean network and hopefully his story can reach more audience for further possible support.

More feedback...

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

that they use music to communicate with people. i remember they have a small keyboard in their very small area and they use it to alleviate people's emotion.

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

the volunteers are very friendly despite the harsh condition that they have to work with.

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

it can change the lives of the people and children in the area through educational programmes and i think that's a very good thing.

Ways to make it better...

i was given more time to know them and their works.

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

lack of facilities and paid staff to really get things going for their advocacies.

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

I hope more people would come to help them.
