A collection of “50 Fascinating Testimonies” of Filipino migrants in Europe, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Asia, and other parts of the world, but especially in Italy. The “Testimonies,” culled by the Author/Compiler from hundreds that have reached him, focus on the migrants’ different situations and challenges. These are categorized and presented within the framework of the seven classic “Beatitudes” and the additional one “Blessed Are They Who Believe.” The “Testimonies” reveal many of the dramatic situations in which the Filipino migrants live and have to contend with. The narrative is accompanied by delightful cartoons/caricatures and by a selection of documentary photos of activities in which the Filipino OCW occasionally participated.
The book ends with a “Prayer for Pinoys on the Move.”
All Filipino migrants and Filipinos preparing to migrate, priests and religious involved in apostolic work among the migrants, Values Education teachers, people working at the DFA.
