"A WIDOW'S MITE"
School Founder: Mrs. Julie Lee Tan

       "If only there was a large piece of land, where a Chris­tian village could be built, with a first-rate school, a Bi­ble-centered church, with beautiful music heard daily inside this village; and where the villagers live under an at­mosphere of culture and spirituality, beloved by both God and man..."


       This was the DREAM--­some 65 years ago--of a slightly built young lady, Mrs. Julia L. Tan.
This lady hap­pened to be a poor widow with five small children in the Philippines.
