This site is dedicated to the most humane work of Ms Louise Lynip who founded the children's home and until the 4th July 2006 at the age of 94 continued to participate in it's management. The home cares for orphaned and abandoned children and offers love, security and
an opportunity to be brought up in a christian environment.

Our Children at Bethany

A Big Welcome To My New Bethany Site

Now that AOL has closed their hometown blog site we had no alternative but to construct a new blog site for Bethany Christian Home for Children Inc in Talakag, Bukidnon.
I have copied and pasted much of the former material just for reference purposes but unfortunately all of the old photographs have been lost. Not to worry as I have copies and will re post them where appropriate.
So for my wife Marilou and myself not only is this a new bog site but also a new beginning as we travel to the Philippines on Tuesday 25th November to start our retirement in the town of Talakag.
I just hope that through this site the many people who visit us here will be inspired to assist where possible to help support the upkeep of such a wonderful facility as is the Bethany Christian Home for Children in Talakag. Its always been my belief if kind hearted people know what is happening with their donations they continue to respond and this is the intent of this blog. I intend to regularly update all those who are interested in Bethany as to the progress being made in respect of the children being cared for. This way our donors take ownership for the longer term plans of the facility.
All I can say is I will endeavour to do my best along with my wife to ensure that the children continue to come first as was the cornerstone of its founder Louise Lynip and the goal of the current Management and Board.
