AA for Darwin
I can do things you cannot, YOU can do things I cannot, TOGETHER, We can do great things..
My name is Glo Vergara, married to Rom Vergara for 15 years and together we are Ancop Coordinator and ambassador in NT. We attended CLP in 2012 in Katherine and our faith became stronger and inspired by everyone in the CFC community from Darwin. In 2013, Katherine YFC camp started and we accepted the challenges of being a youth coordinator. In November 2015 we moved to Darwin because of our work commitments. We now belong to the household of AGT in CFC Darwin
Back in the Philippines, I belong to a big family with 5 siblings. We were poor in a big family with little resources. We experienced how hard life was but felt very fortunate and blessed at the same time, having a hardworking parent whose only thoughts were the good future of their children. I became a dentist in the Philippines.
My husband had the same experience having a bigger family with 9 siblings but also completed university and became an architect.
We knew and acknowledged all our blessings from above and we became open to any services we can provide. I left my private practice and worked as a school dentist in remote schools in Quezon province. I also joined in providing free dental services when there was medical mission. Rom on that time was also very active in our parish church.
We migrated to Australia in 2005 and restarted a new life with different jobs. After settling in we became fortunate and blessed again to study in line with our previous profession. Currently I am working as a dental hygienist at NDC Darwin and Rom a project manager in the building section in NT Government. We have two children, 14 y/o son and 10 y/o daughter.
We gave him our full trust and He never failed us. Therefore, whenever we are called, we just let Him lead us. We wanted to give back however small it is. As Mother Theresa of Calcutta said;
I can do things you cannot
YOU can do things I cannot
TOGETHER, We can do great things..
We accepted this ambassadorship task again to contribute small things and we are hoping we can do great things together for our disadvantaged families.
We believe and wanted to support one of the mission of CFC ANCOP Australia, “to provide education to the unfortunate or disadvantaged children”. We hope for them to feel how great our God is all the time, for them to see hope and trust God to the fullest.
Let us hold our hands together and fulfil this mission, make a difference and change the face of the earth.
Thank you and may God bless everyone always.
