Walking on Sunshine Tour tickets are available at raymondla.eventbrite.com. This concert is for the benefit of the JIR Foundation.
The JIR Foundation was born out of the desire of its founders, Henry and Monica Chen, to help insufficiently paid full-time Christian workers who passionately obey Christ’s commandment of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. The foundation provides financial support to dedicated church workers and missionaries by assisting them through one time gifts or monthly grants. This endeavor is made possible by generous donors over the years. (By Ma. Angelica Cabahug)
