I have been in the Philippines for 3 years. Right now our church congregation is over 1,000 and about 90% under the age of 20. We hav our church in the heart of a huge slum are in a town of 3 million. We expect to minister to 1,500-2,000 by June '09. We want to keep as good track of the children and their families needs as humanly possible.


THis is called being a good shepherd. God knows every hair on our heads, he knows when the sparrows fall, and he noticed when one out of 100 lambs got lost, and he went out to bring it back in. That motivates me to do my best!


Please contact me if you are interested.


Must have experience with FM and implementation of scanners and Id cards.


The following are our needs

- Check-in using their cards

Is this a commercial request, or is it a pro bono request. Are you willing to upgrade to Filemaker 9?

I would be just as grateful for a probono as well as someone to pay.


If you are interested in contracting this for pay, I would need an estimate of cost. Is your rate according to job or hours? Either way, I need numbers to work with so I can plan accordingly.

And yes, if upgrading is needed from 7 to 9, I'd be ok with that.
