“I know that the call for service usually takes the parents away from the children, so I wanted to make the children happy this Christmas. It warms my heart to see the children of our honorable military men happy,” Francis shared.

The kids watched an episode of CBN Asia’s animated series, Superbook entitled “The First Christmas,” and enjoyed a song and dance number with their favorite character, Gizmo. Francis also led the distribution of gifts and enjoyed eating a meal with the children after.

Apart from his birthday, Francis also shared that the program is his way of giving back for all the blessings he received. “I am celebrating my 20th anniversary in the fashion industry and I am so grateful for all the talent, creativity, and blessings from those past years. I really thank God that the Philippine Navy and Operation Blessing gave me this opportunity to give back by helping others.”

Philippine Navy’s NCR Lieutenant Commander Ronald Lim also expressed their desire to more partnerships with Operation Blessing after the first ever gift-giving event. “We are looking forward for more partnerships with Operation Blessing for the coming years. We have seen how they extended help to many people and we are blessed to be one of them.”

  • Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

    II Corinthians 6:14 NKJV

    I’m just wondering why CBN would partner with someone who is just got married in a gay marriage wich God strictly forbiden and God commanded christians not be partners with someone living in sin or ungodly lifestyle. I just saw Francis Libiran Gay marriage in youtube.
