Gus Tambunting recalls early days of volunteering in church

0 79

Gus Tambunting’s big frame got him a special job at their local church as a kid.

The Parañaque congressman got a little nostalgic as he heard the simbang gabi at the Presentation of the Child Jesus Parish, which apparently grew alongside him.

“Our family is blessed to have been part of PCJ from its earliest days and to have seen it grow into what it is today,” he said.

The politiko explained how the church was still made with light materials back in the 1980s and how he would take part in preparations for the regular masses.

“Ang aking mga kapatid ay kasama sa choir. Dahil hindi po ako masyado kumakanta, ako po ay ang naging tagabuhat ng karaoke machine na ginagamit ng choir,” he reminisced. “Minsan, dahil yero lang po yung bubong, may tumutulo na tubig tuwing may ulan. Dahil dito, hinahanapan namin yung karaoke ng isang lugar na walang tubig para hindi masira. Fond memories indeed.”
