MARY QUEEN OF ALL NATIONS MISSIONARY ALLIANCE
October 28, 2013

Speaking of charity, I don't think there is no other great person who can personify this other than Merla Ricafranca who is the founder of Mary Queen of all Nations Missionary Alliance in Dover, New Jersey. Come to think of it, she herself could have benefited from its great work since she had been aflicted with Cerebral Palsy since the day she was born; but instead, she offered herself up to the service of the Lord in helping those more disadvantaged than she was by sacrificing her meager income to help the poor helpless familiies in the third world countries and among them was of course, the Philippines where she came from. Then as soon as she was able to get a few members who were willing to give thier time and effort for such a wonderful cause, then it gradually extended to India, Bolivia, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and so many other third world countries in desperate need of help. Mind you, the workers are volunteers who do not get paid for the work that they do including sending packages ot rosaries, books, school supplies as well as toiletries and even some viamins to the poor under nourished children of the villages. With the contributions it gets of which 100% goes to the missions, they are able to provide toilets for sanitation as well as chapels for places of worshipin the villages which are served by the number of ordained priests in the diferent provinces. Actually, there is much more work to be done but that sometimes become impossiblr to do with the limited funds it has. Only with God's help and the generosity of our much needed donors will His will be done on us.

MARY QUEEN OF ALL NATIONS MISSIONARY ALLIANCE
June 22, 2013

I am sure the Holy Spirit must have led me to know Merla, the founder of Mary Queen of all Nations Missionary Alliance and its wonderful works. At first I was not fully aware of the kind of organization it was until I started attending the monthly meetings. With just a handful of members, great things have been accomplished by the Alliance over the years by inviting a few donors who could spare a few hundred dollars so that we can wire some money to help some poor seminarians finish school and be ordained to the preisthood. Not only that but we also mail out much needed books and school supplies to poor students who do not have the means and resources they need. The families are able to start a lot of self help projects from breeding farm animals and growing and selling them so that they have some source of income. I really admire Merla for her unbelievable efforts in helping our poor brothers and sisters in the third world countries like India, Bolivia, the Philippines,etc. I can just imagine how much more that this non profit organization would be able to do if only it has all the funds it needs to share the world. I think Merla has become our modern day Mother Theresa with all the works she does.

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

1. Ask for its full recognition to be fully funded as 100% Non Profit organization. 2. Obtain a cure for Cerebral Palsy that has greatly affected its founder physically.

MARY QUEEN OF ALL NATIONS MISSIONARY ALLIANCE

I have been a member of this fantastic nonprofit organization for several years which really exists with the help of a few donors who recognize the needs of our poor brothers in the impoverised countries of the world from Africa to Bolivia, The Philippines, India, etc. It is amazing how we are able to help several seminarians be ordained as priests and be able to serve the neighboring remote provinces by sending them much needed used books and vestments. Mass intentions are sent out to them and they accept whatever is offered for their prayers. Families with no resources are encouraged to start up some home projects from the meager collections of our faithful patrons like getting them a couple of pigs to raise and multiply which give them a source of income, or even providing them with some contributions for a sewing machines so that the mothers are able to sew clothes for the children so that they can go to school. Occasionally, we usually send some school supplies and toiletries that are mostly needed. These are just a few examples of the endless work of charity which was started by our benevolent founder, Merla Ricafranca. I am really very proud to be a member of this great charitable organization which has the great support and blessing of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Dover, New Jersey.
