Project Nehemiah 5B: Bamboo and Bricks. A year-long fund generation campaign for the plastering and waterproofing works of the exterior wall of the sanctuary which currently creates a “water fall of rainwater leak during heavy rains,” and seed money for the chancel wall interior design of bricks and wooden panels from the mango tree slabs.  Dubbed as bamboo supposedly representing the scaffolds but now the “gondola-type scaffold” and wooden wall panels and bricks for the interior wall, PN5B: Bamboo and Bricks aims at generating P200,000.00 for the entire project.  It will constitute a brick miniature costing P500.00 each that would be mounted on a frame with “bumbong” or bamboo coins as border design to be set up at the sanctuary.  The bamboo coinbanks would be filled up by big coins like P5.00 and P10.00.  This will be a year-long campaign until next year’s Church Anniversary celebration.
