An Article Of Enrichment During South Zone's Monthly Meeting
by Oying & Ruth

Your Honorable WME Couples,

We would like to inform the floor that the Manila South Zone resumed it's monthly Enrichment proceedings last January 13, 2001 at the sala of Dado & Cory Hipolito.

Couple judges from Manila South came to witness the testimony of Bobby and Alma and were asked to actively participate in the proceedings through a process which left no shadow of doubt that indeed we should all re-commit ourselves for a better Movement come this new century.

The Zone also approved a motion on the floor to actively participate in the 25th Silver Anniversary in Cebu via all means possible. A motion was also raised on the floor that all enrichments and gatherings of the Zone henceforth shall exclude the bringing of food to share and instead a process called pass the hat shall be observed. Money from such gatherings will be routed to the Zone's funds for use in the 25th Silver Anniversary and other matters concerning the proper functioning of the Zone in the years to come. It was a unanimous decision and the motion was approved without further delay.

An ammendment to serve lugaw each time the Zone gathers was also approved but several couple judges strongly suggested that spaghetti should also be serve from time to time.
Dado & Cory will also prepare the first draft of a form letter that will be sent to sponsors asking for donations for the 25th Anniversary. This form letter will be distributed to the couples in the earliest possible time and must be complied with without further delay. The formal meeting ended almost near midnight when a motion for recess was raised. The next session will promptly convene as soon as the need to do so arises.

We adjourned at the tick of the clock at exactly 12:00 midnight.
No further questions, your Honor!

Oca-Lily Turns Over Leadership To Gerry-Mila!
by Oying & Ruth

 A simple passing on ceremony was held at Dado-Cory’s home of the leadership of Manila South Zone last March 10, 2001. Tokens of appreciation were also given to some couples who gave their time, talent and treasure to the community during the three year leadership of Oca-Lily.
 It was also the monthly enrichment meeting of the Zone. The enrichment was given by Gerry-Mila and the theme was “Why are we still with the movement?” The couples were challenged to answer this via dialogue questions and group sharing.
 During the business portion, Gerry-Mila reminded the couples of filing their registration forms for the 25th Silver Jubilee Anniversary in Cebu City this coming  November. A special banner was also unfolded which will always be put on display in every zone activity to remind the community of the celebration. 
 The Solicitation Letter for the 25th Anniversary was also distributed to the couples. Using one format for the letter, Gerry-Mila together with Dado-Cory explained the mechanics of the fund raising via sponsorship through donations. 

January 19-20, 2001

Inspite of the EDSA 2 Revolution that has been going on this weekend, South Zone had a very successful weekend. Oying - Ruth writes, "Our weekend was a successful one inspite of the worries about what is happening at EDSA. It will be a memorable weekend for us all including the 7 couples who joined. Some couples didn't make it because of the happennings at the People Power 2." 

Mabuhay sa 7 nating bagong encountered couples.

The New Zone Board convened last Sept. 3 at the Vincentian Hills Seminary, Angono, Rizal, also the new home of Fr. Opet.
 One of the highlights of the meeting is the plan to reach out to Cagayan, Bayombong and Angono. A weekend will be given in Angono on December 1-3, 2000. It will be a Filipino weekend. Jeff-Marie were assigned to coordinate this weekend. They were also designated as Zone Coordinator for Angono.The teams for that weekend are Fr. Opet, Rey-Mel, Moises-Marlyn, Ven-Fely.
 A Deeper Weekend is being scheduled on the last weekend of November. As of last count we have 30 Pre-Teams. A kick-off will be held on Sept. 10, 2000 at Oca-Lily’s house.
 There are plans to hold a family day outing and fellowship during the semestral break. An enrichment for our kids will be given during this family day.

New DJ’s were formed  due to the increasing number of couples coming out of the weekend. Isa pa kailangan na rin masimulan ang DJ’s at ma-activate ang mga dating DJ’s. Kaya kung di pa kayo kasali sa ano mang DJ group ay sali na agad kayo! Kayo rin you’ll be left out of one of the best experience sa M.E. Get in touch with our Zone Coordinator para ma-assign na kayo sa DJ Group. Si Oca-Lily ‘yon.

A team meeting was held at Rey-Mel’s house last August 26, 2000. A mini-enrichment was given by Rey & Mel which was followed by dialoguing and group sharing. The weekend guidelines were also reviewed because there are many new teams writing their talks and ready to go and give weekends. The new teams were also assigned their workshoppers so they can start writing their talks. Don & Osie, Leony & Linda were also assigned to translate the weekend talks, questions, and handouts in Pilipino.
