SARAH STA ANA: DEDICATED TO GOD’S WORK

tita sarah fully recovered

It was only August 2015 when Sarah Sta. Ana, CBR Head Coordinator of DEAF Inc. suffered a stroke that paralyzed the whole left side of her body. She had to put aside her work responsibilities and focus on recovering from her condition, something very hard for someone who has dedicated almost half her life to the deaf, to do.

treeplanting at deaf incMany came together to pray for her and lend a helping hand as she went through this rough time. And by faith, perseverance, and God’s grace, less than 6 months after her attack, Sarah is back to serving God through her work at DEAF Inc.

Connect with Sarah and other special people behind DEAF Inc. and be encouraged by the wondrous ways God is using them for His work with the deaf community.

Tree Planting at DEAF Inc.

The area surrounding DEAF Inc. School Laguna remains one of the thickest forests in the province. It is rich with fresh spring waters, endemic plants, and exotic birds.

As a way to protect these natural resources, visitors of the school are encouraged to plant trees. Today there are over 600 new trees in the area. It is DEAF Inc.’s objective to continue planting and keep its environment green and healthy.

Silent Minstrels at Fusion Music Festival 2015

The first staging of Fusion Music Festival 2015 was a night to remember. Members of the Hapee Silent Minstrels, some of which are alumni of DEAF, Inc., had a chance to perform alongside the top musical artists in the country today.

The group interpreted the song “Rainbow” originally recorded by Southborder. They were joined onstage by singer Mark Mabasa, who sang the song.

That night, the Hapee Silent Minstres demonstrated how the deaf can also take part in musical events to showcase their God-given talents.

After their performance, the group had a chance to enjoy the night of music, dancing, and grooving to the beat of OPM.hapee fusion 2
