Progress in the Phililippines

Jacob's gift board voted to send funds to Alex Malanday to construct a 6th grade classroom.  This classroom will provide more space and allow them to instruct more students.  

The Malanday's are also in need of an administration building on their campus that will include staff living quarters, offices, library and restrooms.  Jacob's Gift board has committed to send $10,000 to this cause with a matched $10,000 from ANM supporters.  We currently have $6,375 to send and we are asking for your help to raise the remaining $3,625.  If you are interested in giving please check out our give tab on our website or you can mail checks to 20814 HWY 34 Blakesburg, IA 52536.
