I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket. More than a thousand families are the beneficiaries, and I’m still building more because I always believe what the Bible says; 1 Peter 4:8-10 NIV

[8] Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. [9] Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. [10] Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. Thank you, Lord for everything even some people are criticizing me but I’m still happy because you live in me.
