I am Christian.  I have one wife and three daughters.  I enjoy going fishing and I do not really have many cares.


My one and only wife is Chona. We have three daughters.  Chona and I were married April 2, 2019.  My wife is good, loving and understanding.  My daughters are all good and obedient but still need to be told what to do.


I used to be a sewer in Manila, but during the global crisis in 2019, I decided to go home to the province.  I was a fisherman before I worked at Dignity.


At Dignity, I am an Organic Inspector of coconut farms.  It is my task to observe farms and note what is planted there and in the other nearby farms.  We also teach farmers what should be done and what should not be done in an organic farm.

My hopes for my family is that I  would always be able to meet their needs  - - food, clothing, education, and spirituality.


In my lifetime, I really would like to be able to surprise my mother on her birthday with lots of food served and with dancing just like I see in the movies because my own family is somehow all right already.


A big challenge that I once faced was when I really became so drunk. When my mother and my wife reprimanded me, I blew my top and started yelling at them.  In my anger, I destroyed our little store, threw bottles and containers around until what we were selling and shards of glass were all scattered around.  I even destroyed the fence of the church.  When I became sober, I was so ashamed of what I did and I cried. Before daybreak, I approached everyone whose feelings I have hurt and asked them for forgiveness.  I promised I would never do what I did again.  It is good that somehow, they were able to forgive me.


I am proud that I am able to meet the needs of my family and that I was able to build our own home even if it is not yet completely built as of this time.  I am still paying for it until now.  I am thankful that I have some means to pay off my debts.
