| APOSTOLATE | NEWS
For five days this November, twenty-one missionaries went door to door visiting poor families in Malvar, Batangas.

Phillippine missioary preparation
A lot of time and heart have gone into the preparation of this first YTM mission in Asia.
For the first time missions organized by the Youth for the Third Millennium have reached Asia, specifically in the Philippines. For five days this November, from the 6th to the 10th, twenty youth missionaries went door to door visiting poor families in Malvar, Batangas. Malvar is a two-hour drive from the capital city, Manila.

The twenty-one missionaries, eager and ready to serve, consisted of eleven young men and eight young women from the three most prominent universities in the area, namely UA&P, Ateneo, and La Salle. Leading them were Father Daniel Polzer, a priest of the Legionaries of Christ, and Marcelo and Mimi Fiaes, a Regnum Christi couple dedicating their lives to evangelization.

Their mission was to spend time with the families of the surrounding parishes, inviting them to prayer and to participate in the sacraments on a regular basis, as well as attending to their physical and spiritual needs.
