CFC Zambales, ANCOP Canada begins Mega-CLP in Botolan

July 3, 2019 was an exciting day for evangelization, as well as community development for CFC Zambales and ANCOP Canada. Aside from visiting the possible sites for a new ANCOP community, ANCOP Canada President Ricky Cuenca also gave the Orientation talk for close to a hundred teachers, principals, LGU employees, and members of the senior citizens association at the municipal plaza in Botolan, Zambales for the Mega-CLP.

Mega CLP in Botolan

The CFC ANCOP Shelter Team composed of Ric dela Rosa, Efren Tompong and Yna Briones, together with Cuenca, visited Botolan, where they have partnered with the Municipal Government under the leadership of Mayor Doris Maniquiz, for the development of the CFC ANCOP Canada Francis Yap Community. Prospective home partners will be families of fisherfolks in Bgy. Bangan, a coastal barangay where most of the residents’ homes have been affected by storm surges.

MOA Signing

After the CLP, CFC ANCOP and the Municipal Government signed the Memorandum of Agreement for the proposed community. The CFC ANCOP Canada Francis Yap Community will be built in honor of former CFC Canada National Director Francis Yap. Yap, who was also a fulltime missionary, suffered a massive heart attack on December 8, 2017 in Ontario, which caused his death. Incidentally, Zambales is Yap’s hometown.

It was indeed an exciting day, as it was a manifestation of the CFC two-fold mission of Building the Church of the Home, and Building the Church of the Poor. Once the site development and the construction of the homes are underway, the initial 30 families will likewise undergo the CLP as part of their participation in the ANCOP Shelter Program. This means that the more ANCOP communities are establlished, the more couples will join the CLPs, making ANCOP an avenue for evangelization of families. (Alma Alvarez)
