The six newly-professed young missionaries namely: Randy Grano, John Paul Rante, Vrent Kiblasen, Nguyen Van Hau, Tran Vinh and Lu Heng (East Asia Delegation), professed their evangelical vows in the hands of Fr. Amador Tumbaga, CMF, Provincial Vicar and Master of Novices, who was delegated by Fr. Elias Ayuban, Jr., CMF, Provincial Superior.
