In 2008 Della was asked to come bless the Narra Public School. This was something that a priest would ordinarily do. But, the priest wanted money, so Pastor Francis suggested to the school that he knew someone who would come and bless the school without requiring to be paid. He brought Della to the school and she BLESSED it in the name of JESUS.
The School as we saw it in when we visited with Della three years later in November 2011.

The change involved many parental volunteer hours. The school also received a school improvement grant from the government.

While we were in Palawan, the Narra Public School was in the middle of a two-week daily feeding using the dried vegetable mixture from Ontario Christian Cleaners. They did this because they saw that parasites were leaving the bodies of some children who had been eating the vegetables. This two-week trial feeding is somewhat of an experiment.
Here Della meets the grade 4 teacher.
The teacher spoons up a delicious-smelling soup. It reminded me of soup my mother used to make.
There was actually a contest to discover the best recipe for the dried vegetables.
