Retrospective: Tim Tebow Mission Work In Philippines


It’s hard to believe that Tim Tebow, having lost his Super Bowl chance two weeks ago, has actually been pretty popular for awhile.  And, Tebow, being a white guy, our readers wonder why there is a story on him in Magnumasi.

It seems nearly four years ago, before he was as big as he is now, AsianJournal’s blog reported the Tebowses’ missionary work in the Philippines. 

On the recent weeklong trip to the orphanage his father’s ministry runs in Southeast Asia, Tim assisted in the care of more than 250 Filipinos who underwent medical and dental procedures, including circumcision.

Tim’s original task was to preach to the hundreds of people waiting in line before they had their teeth pulled or cysts removed. But as the day progressed, he looked for more active ways to help the three Filipino doctors. By the end of an exhausting day, he was wearing gloves and a mask, wielding surgical scissors, and helping the doctors in the circumcision of boys, finishing off stitches with a snip.

Well, quarterbacks are known as being good with their hands.  So maybe if this NFL thing doesn’t work out for him, he can enter the field of medical surgery.

Tim was actually born in the Philippines according to news sources.  So he could be the token white Magnumasi.

The AsianJournal got the original story at the Orlando Sentinel.  He’s reportedly laying low since the loss a couple of weeks ago and declined to participate in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament.  That doesn’t stop the sports talking heads from discussing where the Denver Broncos will go now.

At least his foundation will be busy for awhile.  According to ESPN,

The Tim Tebow Foundation and CURE International are teaming up to build a children’s hospital in the Philippines, where the Denver Broncos quarterback was born.

The Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City on the island of Mindanao, a particularly poor area of the Philippines, will be a 30-bed surgical facility focusing on orthopedics.

The groundbreaking will be held in January [2012] and the $3 million hospital is expected to open in 2013.

    How would a child dying of cancer bring about something good?
