Dads seek suspension of river rafting in C. de Oro

C

By CRIS DIAZ, Executive Editor

AGAYAN de Oro City––The City Council here has proposed the suspension of the “whitewater river rafting” in the Cagayan De Oro River rapids until measures are taken to prevent the occurrence of accidents in the river.

City Councilor Ramon Tabor, chair of the city council’s committee on police, fire, and public safety, made the strong endorsement in a bid to prevent the occurrence of an accident which killed a domestic tourist who drowned while having the whitewater river rafting last June 13 (Friday the 13th). The incident where Aiza Baldin, 26, a nurse from Loboc, Bohol, drowned when the rubber boat she was on board (travelling at great speed due to the river rapids), capsized on the impact of the stonewalled river bank, saddened the fledgling tourism industry here. Tabor said that there is a need to review the Ordinance that allows the whitewater river rafting along the more than 3 kilometer stretch of the Cagayan De Oro River rapids until after determining the safety measures and strict compliance of procedures. “There is a need to ensure the capabilities of whitewater rafting outfitters and stressed that safety procedures should be maintained,” Tabor added. He said that an an example of safety procedure is to place a “red flag” in areas considered to be dangerous in order that the rafters would be aware of the impending impact of the rubber boat while passing the area. “It is true that the incident was the first time. It is also the first time all of us are in unison that we hate or fear that there will be a second time,” Tabor said. Tabor also suggested that the city council committee on tourism and the committee on trade, commerce and cooperatives should invite the operators of the local whitewater river rafting here in order to convince the city council that it is safe to pursue the whitewater river rafting here.

DENR-LMB conducts Orientation Workshop, Immersion on Systematic Adjudication Approach in Public Land Titling To capacitate the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) personnel and Local Government Units (LGUs) involved on land disposition, the DENR-LMB conducted an Orientation Workshop and Immersion on Systematic Adjudication Approach in Public Land Titling through the Local Government Unit (LGU) Partnership on June 17-19, 2014 in Maramag, Bukidnon. DENR field personnel from Land Management Service (LMS) including Provincial/Community Environment and Natural Resources Officers (PENROs/CENROs) and LGU representatives from Region V, X, XI, XII and XIII participated in the orientation workshop. “There is really a need for DENR to partner with other agencies to fast track land titling and survey activities”, said OIC, Regional Technical Director (RTD) Paquito Melicor, Jr. of Land Management Service (LMS). RTD Melicor added that adapting new technologies will greatly help to identify the alienable and disposable lands through the cooperation of LGUs. The Orientation Workshop aimed to introduce the Systematic Adjudication Approach in public land titling

through the LGU partnership. The approach seeks to process the whole land on the municipality and is initiated by the Government of the Philippines through the Land Administration and Management Project (LAMP). “Active partnership with LGU is a vital component in systematic adjudication. It is managed directly by the systematic adjudication team leader at the Systematic Adjudication Field Office (SAFO)”, said RTD Eduardo Inting of DENR-7 Forest Management Service (FMS). In Systematic Adjudication Approach, the LGUs provide staff to be trained by DENR to prepare cadastral index map for surveyed areas. For un-surveyed areas, LGUs monument the lot corners with participation from lot occupants. LGUs also provide staff or utilize barangay officials to do community profiling and assembly. The Department Administrative Order (DAO) 2011-06 provides the guidelines for the implementation of public land titling in partnership with the local government units to provide simplified titling services particularly residential lands. The essential steps in systematic adjudication in-

“New Era of Benefits in the Philippine Education” ByJunar S. Rosalita, ESHT-11 Cabayugan Elementary School, Division of Valencia City

Until recently, President Benigno Aquino moved to introduce the Education for all programs, which mandates one year of kindergarten, six years of elementary school education, four years of junior high school and two years of senior high school for students. Thus, students had entered the tertiary education system at 16 years old; graduating with a bachelor degree aged 20. The government had increased the funding in education for about 22% yearly. The administration believes that this would be the approach to improve the standard for higher education and solution to the other problems faced by the society. However,

although the education for all programs will significantly improve the access for education another stumbling block will occur. Large number of student population surface, in some instances leading to decline in quality. Apparently the long term benefit will prove worthwhile with both the government and the private sector keen to see the benefits introduced across the Philippine educational sector. There are more reasons however why this change of educational system is good for the development of our nation. The graduates of this program are strongly prepared to enter the labor force. They are already

equipped with the skills necessary in their specific workplaces. In addition, with the new curriculum students can choose a field in which they are interested in and most especially good at. At the age when they graduate in high school, they are capable of being employed already, summing up to our nation’s need of manpower. The program will also give the students sufficient instructional time to do subject-related tasks which makes them more prepared and well-trained on that subject area.While if we sustain the old curriculum our country will remain with getting low achievement that can’t even compete internationally compared to other countries.Filipinos are smart citizens. They develop and

learn strategies easily. With the new program at hand can visibly see the advantages it has brought to our country. It opened up more workers examples are the teachers and the laborers in building up rooms for the increasing number of students. This new era of educational plan open the student’s opportunity in venturing in competing internationally. And if we focus on long term effects of this program,we will be able to conclude that it is very beneficial to our nation. We may not see it now, but the fruit of this sacrifice especially the student’s will surely be rewarded in the near future.Remember, if we want change and improvement in our country, it must start with education where everything else started.

Agusan Sur governor pushes for grassroots-based devt approach By CHRIS V. PANGANIBAN Regional Editor-Caraga

PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur––Governor Adolph Edward Plaza embarked on grassroots-based people’s decision approach in implementing provincial government programs that would uplift their economic plight. “Municipalities and barangays have varying needs and strengths, thus,“onesize fits all” formula simply cannot stand anymore,” Plaza stressed in his speech as he recently delivered his State-Of-The-ProvinceAddress” before hundreds of people at the Naliyagan

Cultural Center. Underscoring such paradigm shift of bureaucracy, Plaza also pushed for the full implementation of Upland Sustainable Agriculture Development Program (USAD) which serves as the centerpiece poverty alleviation thrust of his administration in the remaining two more years of his second term. He urged municipal and barangay leaders establish a tangible partnership with the communities by meeting and consulting them what they really need since this will serve as a bridge to achieve smooth planning of the program.

“From now on, let it be a standard rule that no program or project shall be implemented by the provincial government unless these two necessary and sufficient conditions are satisfied: one is evidence, the other is processed. Plaza cited the Community Based Management Survey, we have which let the provincial government better understanding on specific programs and projects which the people actually need. “The delivery and implementation of our propoor programs always come with timing, from educa-

tion, livelihood, health, infrastructure and other programs that include environmental protection, so that recipients will have the sense of ownership,” Plaza said. He said the implementation of USAD came on a good start 126 hectares were planted with rubber while some 2.25 hectares were planted with upland rice. He also cited 54 women became beneficiaries of 300-500 square meters of chr ysanthemum flower gardens and 49 hectares of cacao farm development with a strong partnership between local cooperatives.

Plaza also said his administration was doing its best in order to access to funding institutions to finance lined up priority projects that the provincial government have lined up. And because of this, there are big programs of the provincial government that are funded by four funding institution and one of them is the PAMANA program that has almost P500 million funds. “Right now, I am challenging the Department of Agriculture that if they have programs and projects to be implemented here in Agusan del Sur, we can

arrange it even tomorrow because we have a standby surplus fund of P100 million ready for our counterpart,” Gov. Plaza said. On education, Plaza said the province has presently 374 scholars for this school year 2014-2015. “We have already hundreds of graduates as products of our scholarship program and many are now working with the provincial government as doctors, nurses, teachers and managers. This scholarship program will continue to increase until there are qualified students who want to avail of it,” he added.

Agusan del Norte implements over P342m infra projects By Venus L. Garcia of PIA-Caraga

BUTUAN City––Accessibility for farm products, among others, and maintaining their freshness as they reached the market and the consumers were the primary reasons why the province of Agusan del Norte (AgNor) has implemented 64 various infrastructure projects amounting to

P342,071,923.92 million. These projects include roads, bridges, port improvements and disaster mitigating infrastructure structures. The national government incharge of public works also contributed by implementing six major projects amounting to P185,475,000. Agusan del Norte governor Ma. Angelica Rosedell Amante-Matba admitted that

the figure does not include the P50M allocation for two tourism related projects at the municipalities of Carmen and Remedios T. Romuladez (RTR). Related to this, Matba said that the growth of cargo shipments by 25.22 percent or 4,905,315 MT, notably in exports, is attributed to the improved port facilities. Passenger traffic also grew by 14.08 percent.

“This shows that we continue to be the preferred gateway in the region,” underscored Matba. In addition, Matba confirmed that P44M worth of irrigation projects serving a total of 500 hectares in Las Nieves, Nasipit, Buenavista, Jabonga, Kitcharao and cabadbaran were introduced. Some have been completed already. She further described that

this has resulted to increase productivity of rice which reached 53,739 MT or 4.0 metric tons per hectare during the year in review. Similarly, corn productivity has reached to 7.0 metric tons per hectare in some areas. It was learned that the other benefit that these irrigation projects brought was the generation of about 320 jobs. This was on top of the

1,332 jobs generated from other industries that were reported by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). “We strongly support the strategy of President Benigno Aquino on inclusive growth because we recognized that the benefits that our nation is enjoying would have lesser effect if the poor does not enjoy these benefits,” emphasized Matba.

NFA Bukidnon intensifies ‘palengke watch’ By RUBY LEONORA R. BALISTOY

MALAYBALAY CITY — National Food Authority (NFA) Bukidnon said it is continuing tight monitoring of rice in the province’s major markets to ensure that prices are reasonable and affordable during the lean season. In an inquiry before the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Committee on Agriculture and Food, NFA Provincial Manager Juliet A. Obeso said commercial rice prices may increase during months of July, August, and September because this is planting season, and traditionally, rice traders take advantage of this lean harvest time of the year to rake in more profit. “Hence, ‘Palengke Watch’ teams have been mobilized to keep track of the supply and prices in the market and safeguard government rice against unscrupulous traders,” she said. NFA rice in various accredited sales outlets province-wide is sold at P32.00 per kilo. In targeted barangays, however, P27.00 per kilo of NFA rice is also available. This intends to give options to those who want it at cheap price, as specified in NFA Targeted Rice Distribution Program (TRDP), Obeso said. The agency regularly coordinates with barangay and municipal government

in doing rounds of visiting public markets to ensure that subsidized government rice gets to the intended beneficiaries. Monitoring teams should reflect in their reports the lowest, modal, and highest prices of commercial rice. Accredited retailers must sell it at the prescribed price set by authorities and never resort to short-weighing or mislabelling, she said. The “Palengke Watch” teams also check whether every licensed grains retailer and wholesaler complies with NFA rules and regulations. NFA advised every licensed grains trader to implement the prescribed facilities and equipment such as duly calibrated weighing scales, storage space, and white-painted rice boxes. There should also be a display of prescribed signboards on the exterior wall of grains establishment bearing the name of the licensee, the NFA control number and the words “Licensed Grain Retailer” or “Licensed Grain Wholesaler.” Grain retailers are reminded to abide by these requirements. Violators of NFA Rules and Regulations shall be meted the corresponding penalty. (RLRB, PIA 10 Bukidnon)

Display of faith TRUST or reliance? What does faith mean to you? To say it clearly: without faith we are really nothing. Faith is belief; believe in us, beliefs in our works, talents and personalities. We also should believe in our parents or better, in the whole family, including the black sheep, which can be found everywhere. We also should believe in our friends, even sometimes it seems to become a very difficult task. A friend? A real friend? An expatriate friend...? Without faith, we will be reaching the rock bottom. Please, my dear readers, don’t say, it’s a likely story. The German poet Johann Christian Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1815) mentioned in his drama “Maria Stuart”: “Even the word might be dead, but faith

Have my say Klaus Doring keeps it alive!” Yes, I can live with this. Faith and hope belong together. In his book “Through the valley of the Kwai”, Scottish officer Ernest Gordon wrote of his years as a prisoner of World War II. The 6’2” man suffered from malaria, diphtheria, typhoid, beriberi and jungle ulcers. Many circumstances quickly plunged his weight to less than 100 pounds. Lying in the dirt in the death house, he waited to die. But every day, a fellow

prisoner came to wash his wounds and to encourage him to eat parts of his own rations. As this fellow prisoner nursed Ernest back to health, he talked with the agnostic Scotsman of his own strong faith in God and showed him that, even in the midst of suffering, here is hope - and faith! Faith is indeed tantamount to convincing and conviction. Richard Wagner, a German classical composer and poet found the following lyric: “Blessed are

at the hands of the military? How about the agony of the not-so-lucky Mapalad farmers of Sumilao Bukidnon who are yet again on a long, very long, walk to Malacañang to ask PNoy to do as he promised years ago? If anything, Matuwid na Daan should be about justice— and consistency in its quest. It should also be about honor—regardless of association with the high and mighty, and retribution. Too, there should be delicadeza—unsullied by nepotism or favoritism shielding kabarkada, kabarilan, kaklase. Yet all this time we were told that Matuwid na Daan is for real: an earnest strategy for reforms, one embodying PNoy’s vision and mission for our society. But it’s been over four years, with barely two years left of his term, and so much remains unaddressed. Inaction is draining away a lot of his considerable political capital. In the field of gover-

nance, autonomy remains a pipedream, the locals ever dependent on the central government. The party system remains a shambles while political syndicates disguised as “Parties” dominate the power centers. Even the Liberal Party, of which PNoy is the titular head, seems unable to cope with intra party challenges. And now the pork barrel scam is joined by the equally if not more controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) which directly implicates PNoy and Budget Management Secretary Butch Abad. The implications of an adverse Supreme Court ruling on this issue involving alleged disbursements to senators in connection with the trial of former Chief Justice Renato Corona promise to be a bombshell of an impeachable issue. One major opportunity P-Noy continues to pass up is his government’s failure to capitalize on his decree requiring every community or barangay to convene twice yearly, in March and again in October.

those people,who know how to live their life in humility and faith.” Well, let’s even continue believing in our government. Faithful hope is loyal, reliable, exact and honorable. Faith looks beyond the transient life with hope for all eternity. The hope we read about in the scripture, is not a wishy-washy optimist. First and second Chapter of Thessalonians, for example, give encouragements to all Christians, who have been undergoing persecution for their faith. And, Corinthians 13:2 says: “If I have faith it can move mountains!” +++ Email: doringklaus@ gmail.com or follow me on Facebook or Twitter or visit www.germanexpatinthephilippines.blogspot.com.

How straight, how level is Matuwid Na Daan? By Manny Valdehuesa

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– It’s been over four years since this administration took charge of our society. But it has passed up every opportunity for everyone to internalize its concept, slogan, or mantra of “Matuwid na Daan.” Consequently, as a governing strategy, or even as a slogan, “Matuwid na Daan” has been ineffective. As a behavioral guide for the public service, it has merely deepened the cynicism of those who view PNoy’s leadership with skepticism. As a management concept, it remains a vague notion. What sincerity it claims is neutralized by recalcitrant behavior at the center of power. Its resolve is clouded by indecision or inaction. For instance, what’s with the Ampatuan Massacre, now five years hanging at bar, twisting in the wind like dirty laundry? And will Edita Burgos ever have closure on the disappearance of her son, Jonas, reportedly

Worm’s Eyeview

It will be recalled that he issued Proclamation No. 260 in September 2011 requiring the holding of synchronized meetings of the Barangay Assembly nationwide. So far, the event comes and goes each time with no impact or significant result, local or national, not even to take up how Matuwid na Daan applies to every community. This Assembly encompasses every Filipino in every community except under-age youngsters. Because it is “synchronized”— simultaneous in all 42,078 barangays—it is a perfect opportunity for the entire nation not only to straighten out the inner workings of its communities but to reorient or realign it and its activities in accordance with the policy of autonomy and the principle of subsidiarity. This nationwide event is a momentous occasion by any measure. Except for nationwide elections, tax-filing day, and certain religious observances such as Ramadan or Christmas, there are few such simultaneous events in the life See level, page 11

Just this month, Filipino troops stormed the hideout of a notorious militant leader Abdul Basit Usman - who also has links with al-Qaeda and Jemaah Islamiya – in Maguindanao province, but he managed to escape after being shot and wounded in the massive military operation. Brigadier General Edmundo Pangilinan, commander of the 6th Infantry Division, said two other suspected militants were killed by soldiers during the raid in the hideout of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters in the village called Libutan in Shariff Saydona Mustapha town. He said Usman’s wife and three other women – two of them Indonesian nationals and a Filipina native of Sulu

Juvenile Delinquent Law must be repealed, says Davao mayor By Lilian C. Mellejor

D

AVAO CITY – Mayor Rodrigo Duterte wants a repeal of the Juvenile Justice System and Welfare Act, saying “it sucks” for it promoted false belief that minors are vulnerable and invincible when they commit crimes.

“It brings chaos to the criminality system,” Duterte said on heels of report that crimes involving minors continue to rise in the city. He said theft or the “akyat bahay” is bugging public security, emphasizing that the police is helpless in curbing crimes involving minors. At the joint City Peace and Order Council on Friday, the City’s Anti-Drug Abuse Council and the People’s Law Enforcement Board (PLEB) and the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) reported that

30 per cent of the number of index crimes in the city was perpetrated by minors as young as 10 years old and mostly habitual offenders. A two-month (April – May 2014) crime statistics of DCPO showed that there were 1,332 cases reflecting an 11 per cent increase from last year with 1,182 in the same period. The non-index crimes also reflected a two per cent rise to 1,584 from 1,550 in the same period last year; while, the crime volume reached 2,882 cases

from 2,766 last year or an increase of four per cent. But the crime solution efficiency decreased by 36.80 per cent with only 1,018 solved cases from a total crime volume of 2,766, DCPO reported. During his Sunday regular program “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa”, Duterte stressed the majority of the crimes is putting too much pressure on the police because these were committed by minors. “Bisag arestuhon pa nimo – walay mabuhat ang police kung kuhaon na sa ginikanan. Sila pod ang ma-preso (Even if the police will arrest them -– they cannot do anything if the parents come and take custody of their children. They (police) can be charged

if they held them (minor offenders),” he said, thus minors go scot-free. Minor offenders are released as fast as they are arrested, Duterte added. “We are facing an incongruous situation here,” he said. The mayor was also concerned that minor offenders are the future hardened criminals because they do not undergo any counseling to let them understand the gravity of their offenses while still minors. Duterte blamed the Juvenile Justice System and Welfare Act or Republic Act 9344 as culprit in the increasing index crimes and address issues of Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL).

The mayor even criticized the author of the law, then Senator Francis Pangilinan, for failing to consider future consequences when the law was crafted. According to Duterte, the law was a mere copy from a similar law in the United States that is not applicable under the Philippine setting. In the US, he said another set of mechanism was established to meet the demands of minor offenders wherein they are put in children half way homes before they can go back to the family. He said Philippines cannot cope with advance countries like the US in dealing with

'Water dwellers’ grow nutritious, organic veggies thru small-scale, container gardens ( first of two parts) By BONG D. FABE CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — Every morning, Evelyn Galitche, her neighbors Monley Tamula, Emilyn Monsion, Carmela Monsion, Lorregie Abat, and others, go out of their houses and go to their gardens just outside their doorsteps to harvest fresh vegetables for their breakfast. Before, these mothers went to the nearest public market, some 5 kilometers away, and spent at least Php150.00 a day to buy food, mostly vegetables and spices, to feed their families. “But now, we just go outside our homes and onto our container gardens for whatever we want for a meal,” said Abat, 41, and a mother of 9 children. But unlike ordinary gardens, these mothers’ gardens are composed of discarded containers, PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) bottles, broken pails, used sacks and even tetra pots (tetra packs sewn together to form a container) arrange on wooden A-risers. At a glance, their urban container gardens (UCGs) look like any other ordinary container gardens. But at closer inspection, they are unlike any other UCGs as they are built on stilts on top of water. Like their houses built on stilts along the mouth of the Cagayan de Oro River in Sitio Puntabon, Barangay Bonbon, their container gar- Evelyn Galitche inspects her UCG on stilts in Sitio Puntabon, Barangay Bonbon, Cagayan de Oro City.

Carmela Monsion, 53, used to grow flowers on pots to beautify her humble home. But since learning UCG, she switched to vegetables because “vegetables are not only pleasing to the eyes; they are also consumable.” “Growing vegetables is more fun because you get to eat them,” said Carmela’s daughter, 23-year-old Emilyn Monsion, a mother of 3. To further fertilize her container garden, Emilyn experimented with urine-based fertilizer (UBF). And much to her surprise, her vegetables are much larger than those without UBF. “This is the best strategy to help clean our environment and fight hunger and nutritional deficiencies because this encourages recycling, proper waste management, resource management aside from helping families grow their own across 43.

ADDS NECESSARY NUTRIENTS: Urban agriculture strategies such as UCG are becoming a must in cities where many residents lack the necessary nutritional requirements due to the fast-paced life compared to rural areas. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said that a typical Filipino diet lacks nutrients. “Food supply and how it is distributed and consumed by the populace have consequent impact on nutritional status. While reports indicate that there are enough food to feed the country, many Filipinos continue to go hungry and become malnourished due to inadequate intake of food and nutrients. In fact, except for protein, the typical Filipino diet was found to be grossly inadequate for en-

lance operations and intelligence provided by civilians about Usman and the BIFF, blamed for the series of bombings in the restive Muslim autonomous region. Philippine authorities have blamed Usman, also a former Moro Islamic Liberation Front commander, for the spate of deadly bombings in Mindanao the past two decades. The MILF, the country’s largest Muslim rebel group which recently signed a peace deal with Manila, has previously ordered its forces to hunt down Usman after he was linked to terror attacks. In 2010, Pakistan military reported that Usman was killed along with another foreigner and 10 alQaeda militants in a US drone strike in the restive South Waziristan region, but the reports turned out to be false with the Philippine military saying that the militant leader was in Mindanao. The United States has put up a $5 bounty for Marwan and $1million for Usman under its Government Rewards Program after they were tagged by authorities as behind deadly bombings in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. Marwan, who was trained as an engineer in the United States, is also included in the “Most Wanted Terrorists” list of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Filipino security officials have not issued any statement about the news that Marwan is alive, but security forces clashed recently with the Abu Sayyaf group in Sulu province that killed and wounded at least 40 soldiers and militants. It was unknown whether Marwan or any other Malaysian or Indonesian militants were with the Abu Sayyaf group that clashed with government forces. (Mindanao Examiner)

those “incurrence of expenditure not dictated by the demand of good government,” Castelo said. Citing the COA report released on the 3rd week of January 2014, Castelo said the DepEd spent P22,684,559.33 to build hand-washing facilities in schools in Misamis Oriental, Biliran, Navotas and Malabon two years ago. But inspections by COA representatives revealed most of the built handwashing facilities were not functional, not fully utilized and unnecessary as there were no available water resources in the targeted schools, according to Castelo. “In Misamis Oriental, each hand washing project in 25 schools cost around P45,000 to P50,000 but only four or 16 percent are functional and the remaining 84 percent were found useless because of lack of water supply, absence of electrical connection, destroyed faucets and pipes, destroyed hand washing counters and dirty facility and surroundings,” Castelo said. “State auditors had the same observation for the facilities in Navotas, Malabon and Biliran, with lack of water supply as the primary problem,” Castelo added. Quoting the state auditors, Castelo said “it seemed that concerned officials did not consider the availability of water resources in the targeted schools and sanitation of the facilities pursuant to the above-cited DepEd order to ensure the sustainability of these facilities.” “Had concerned officials exercised due diligence, schools with enough toilets and with water supply problem should not have been selected as beneficiaries and the funds could have been allocated to other projects,” Castelo further quoted the

Sumpingan, who saw action during the 2000 AllOut War as an officer of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, explained this is because the Shari’ah Law in the Philippines has no criminal aspect to it. “Kailangan i-implement natin yung tunay na Shari’ah Law para mawala lahat ng mga corrupt Muslim government officials and criminal elements. Tingnan natin kung hindi ba sila matatakot na maputulan ng leeg o kamay,” he said. But Asis said that the 1987 Constitution, which is the basis of the proposed BBL, has no criminal provisions for the Shari’ah Law. “This is because the Philippines is not an Islamic countr y,” she explained. The to-be-established new Bangsamoro territory will not be an Islamic state but a secular government. While the proposed BBL has provisions for the implementation of the Shari’ah Law, it will only apply to the Bangsamoro and only for civil cases and not for criminal offenses. (Bong D. Fabe)

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Bothered Special Gospel of the day: Luke 9:11-17(June 24, 2014-Tuesday) Luke 9:11-17- he received them, and spoke unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing: This is the truth that if we will follow Christ, our diseases and infirmities will be healed. No one is defeated in obeying and following the footstep of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:21-for even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps. We can notice that these people in the gospel are “sacrificing” too much just to come to Jesus. They forgot in bringing foods for their “survival and personal necessities.” This situation bothered the disciples of Jesus Christ. And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, we have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all these people.
