DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

 +=A New Venue For Their Evangelization=
 +
 +==In His Steps Radio Program==
 +SFC and YFC leaders of Metro
 +Manila have found a new venue
 +for their evangelization. They
 +now anchor "In His Steps", an
 +hour-long radio show aired on
 +DWDD (1134 kHz) everyday
 +from Monday to Friday at 12
 +noon. The first broadcast was
 +aired last June 12, Philippine
 +Independence Day.
 +
 +Maricar Gatchalian of SFC
 +Manila heads the anchor team.
 +Five groups composed of five
 +persons each group rotate
 +anchoring duties every day and
 +discuss different topics culled
 +from SFC and YFC formation
 +talks.
 +
 +==Mid-year Provincial Councils==
 +CFC Philippine Mission Director
 +Roquel Ponte conducted midyear
 +provincial conferences in
 +the different regions.
 +The conference
 +featured workshops for every
 +talk and reports from the ensuing
 +group discussions.
 +
 +The Visayas conference was held
 +in Boracay, Aklan; the Northern
 +Mindanao conference in
 +Valencia, Bukidnon; the
 +Southern Mindanao conference
 +in Kidapawan, North Cotabato;
 +and the Luzon conference in
 +Limay, Bataan. The conference
 +had three talks: "The Vision of
 +CFC for the Future",
 +"Leaving a Legacy" (covering
 +the Family Ministries) and "Total
 +Human Liberation: the Thrust of
 +the Future" (covering the Special
 +Ministries).
 +
 +==COOPS for Christ Elects Officers==
 +The COOPS for Christ elected its
 +officers during a General
 +Assembly Meeting held at the
 +Santuario de San Jose Parish.
 +
 +The new officers are: Domy
 +Gregorio as Chairman, Bernie
 +Cuevas as Vice-Chairperson and
 +Education Committee head,
 +Oland David as Finance
 +Committee head, Thelma Hizon
 +as Livelihood Committee head
 +and Ponet Ladrido as Business
 +Development head. Frank
 +Padilla sits in the board as
 +representative of the CFC
 +Council while Charly Reyes is
 +Executive Committee Head.
 +
 +==The COMELEC at the STMA Forum==
 +Harriet Demetriou was the guest
 +speaker during the STMA forum
 +at the Casa Nila
 +Restaurant. She spoke on
 +"Philippine Elections",
 +focusing on the topics of
 +electoral reforms, heinous
 +crimes, the party list system,
 +absentee voting, volunteer work 
 +and putting NGO's to work for
 +elections.
 +
 +Ms. Demetriou disclosed that for
 +the elections, the
 +COMELEC had been given a
 +budget for the automation of 45%
 +of the electoral system. This
 +figure covers the
 +computerization of the NCR and
 +the entire Mindanao region. She
 +also informed the assembly that
 +buying and selling of votes is
 +now classified as a heinous crime
 +under new Philippine election
 +laws, punishable by heavy
 +penalties and imprisonment.
 +
 +She also disclosed that two bills
 +have been filed affecting the
 +electoral system. One proposes
 +the scrapping of the requirement
 +of 2% of total votes to get a party
 +list seat in Congress. The other
 +requires overseas workers to
 +register in the country they wish
 +to vote from in order that their
 +votes may be counted as absentee
 +votes.
 +
 +Ms. Demetriou enjoined CFC to
 +help in the Precinct Mapping and
 +Verification Project and proposed
 +that CFC be an accredited
 +volunteer organization to help
 +COMELEC perform its duties
 +during the coming elections.
 +
 +Demetriou serves
 +as Vice-President of the Council
 +of Catholic Prison Missions and
 +as Legal Consultant for the
 +Episcopal Commission on
 +Prisoners' Welfare of the
 +Catholic Bishops Conference of
 +the Philippines.
 +
 +==STMA Fields Volunteer Lawyers==
 +When STMA pledged to uphold,
 +defend and promote the dignity
 +and fundamental rights of every
 +human person - not excluding
 +the "least of our humankind", the
 +poor - it realized that it had to
 +make available free legal
 +assistance to those in need,
 +despite the difficulties.
 +
 +A group of Spirit-filled and
 +inspired lawyers from among the
 +brothers and sisters in the CFC
 +community took up the call,
 +volunteered their various
 +expertise in the legal profession
 +and formed a loose/informal
 +"pool" of lawyers. Attorney
 +Nides Respicio calls this group
 +(which he heads) the STMA's
 +Lawyers' League. In Metro
 +Manila, the league relies
 +completely on the enthusiasm
 +exuded by the rest of the group
 +consisting of Attorneys Tom
 +Prado, Rod and Canyl Bustos,
 +Fred Bathan, Joe Ramos, Nes
 +and Myrna Hilario, Jun Farcon,
 +Rolly Erenio, Joe Dy, and Totoy
 +Bacani.
 +
 +The members of the league are
 +kept busy providing free legal
 +assistance to CFC members who
 +are in need and referring clients
 +to equally Spirit-filled CFC
 +brother-lawyers in the provinces
 +who have likewise volunteered to
 +be part of the legal assistance
 +network. They assist the CFC
 +Prison Ministry on selective
 +basis, and helps even non-CFC
 +persons or groups in "special"
 +cases that promise to
 +significantly impact on the
 +STMA mission. The group also
 +hopes to participate, though
 +indirectly, in the fight against
 +crime, pornography and anti-life
 +forces.
 +
 +The league of lawyers has been
 +meeting regularly. Realizing
 +that there indeed is a lack of
 +volunteer lawyers and paralegals,
 +they plan to train brothers and
 +sisters in the CFC community to
 +organize and administer the legal
 +aid program and systematically
 +monitor cases. They are also
 +currently drawing up the
 +guidelines and qualification
 +standards for eligibility in the
 +availability of legal aid.
