Sticker: A Beautiful Story of Waiting ♥

I booked a Grab to the Quezon City Central Post Office where I would claim my long overdue order from a shop abroad. After verifying my drop-off location, the driver asked, "CFC ka po, Ma'am?"
I answered, "SFC po Kuya pero sa CFC po ako nag-wo-work."
"Ahh. CFC din po ako dati." He replied. And the story begins.
Tito Ed graduated from the Christian Life Program (the entry point to CFC) sometime in 2002 (actually, he wasn't sure if it was 2002 or 2003).

CreateMeBooks: Personalized Books for Your Little Ones ♥

Below is the copy of the letter. Read and be inspired. :)
