Well, as most of you know, I am the chief for the Okinawa Marine newspaper. I recently sent a news reporter down there to cover a news story about gifts being delivered by Marines and sailors to 14 nonprofit organizations down there. I copyedited the story and released it to Stars and Stripes (www.estripes.com) and to the Marine Corps Web site. It is covered with Calvary Chapel stuff and pictures and quotes. Praise the Lord. No manipulation on my part, just the Lord's blessing. The CC Bacolod Pastor Joe Rosmarino is quoted in it and pictures of him are above. Here is some of the story:
The service members arrived in Bacolod at approximately 12 p.m. aboard a KC-130 “Hercules” piloted by a crew from Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152, Marine Air Group 36, 1st Marine Air Wing. After the service members unloaded more than half the goods from the plane, they enjoyed a Christmas play performed by the residents of the Calvary Chapel Bacolod Orphanage.
“(United States service members) came from Okinawa to bless us with these gifts,” said CC Bacolod Pastor Joe Rosmarino, the founder of the orphanage and retired Marine gunnery sergeant. “We want to bless (the service members) with a (Christmas) program we put together and give them some gifts.”
