He also installed last night at the Elijah Center Gerry and Nenette Egos as the new chapter head of BCBP Tagbilaran South vice Boy and Helen Camacho.

To be installed this morning as the first chapter head of BCBP Talibon is Bill and Celia Puracan while Alladin and Haydee Lumanyo will be the outreach head of BCBP Ubay. BCBP Tagbilaran North chapter head German Torrero said today’s installation of a chapter and outreach at the same time is a breakthrough in the growth of BCBP in the province.

The installation of BCBP Talibon will be done during a breakfast fellowship at 7:30 this morning with Manny and Reggie Jimenez as couple sharers. The Ubay outreach activity will follow after the Talibon installation rites. Yesterday, Doy and Precy Andrada, BCBP Area Managing Director for West Visayas were the speakers during the sectoral breakfast at Jjs Seafood Village.

BCBP which mission is to bring “Christ to the Marketplace” also has an outreach in Tubigon and will soon have an outreach in Jagna town.

It may be recalled that BCBP Tagbilaran Chapter established outreaches in Dumaguete City and Siquijor while the said outreaches spread the good news to Dipolog City and Negros Oriental.

In his brief remarks during yesterday’s sectoral breakfast fellowship at JJ’s Seafood Village, Jimenes lauded the Boholanos’ generousity. He always cites Bohol during chapter visitations as one place where the people “think first of others.” He cited the gesture of BCBP Bohol to forgo getting a balance of a calamity fund from BCBP National, originally intended for the province. Bohol waived to receive the said fund assistance and instead decided to give it to the typhoon victims and Leyte even if the province was still suffering from the damages of the magnitude 7.2 killer quake which hit Bohol few weeks before super typhoon Yolanda killed thousands of residents in Leyte and Samar provinces.

From the breakfast fellowship, Jimenez together with Regional Council Director Jojo Maniwan proceeded to meet Gov. Edgar Chatto where the BCBP was requested to donate a Holy Bible (Visayan) and a crucifix to the 8,083 earthquake victims who will be the recipients of houses from national and foreign funding agencies come Oct 15 this year. The said bibles to be donated by BCBP members nationwide, is the community’s humble contribution for the upliftment of the earthquake victims in Bohol. The value formation activity will have the bible enthronement in every house during the blessing and turnover of the houses to their respective recipients by October this year.

On the other hand, BCBP inked yesterday the agreement to construct a classroom at Vincent Institute in Maribojoc town and Sacred Heart Academy in Loon. Fr. Joel Ruyeras of the Loon Parish was present durung the signing.
