MANILA, Philippines — Missionary visual artist Kristine Lim visited Basilan recently for her first official mission as a soldier under the Philippine Navy (PN).

Artist on a Mission founder, CMO2 Kristine Ann S. Lim PN (Res) in real life, she was in the company of fellow Naval Reserve Public Affairs Unit (NRPAU) Ambassadors Miss Philippines-World 2016 IT1 Kristine Joy Ocampo Cruz PN (Res), and her sister, Brand Ambassador, PO3 Ninna Ricci Cruz PN (Res), as well as GMA Kapuso artist, PO2 JC Tiuseco PN (Res).

Together, the four NRPAU Ambassadors visited Pilas Island, Hadji Muhtamad Municipality, Basilan Province, to conduct an All-in-One Medical Mission. A major event, the medical mission covered a lot of ground, providing residents not just such services as medical and dental assistance, distribution of reading eyeglasses, and cataract and cleft lip profiling, but also gift giving, distribution of toys and groceries, arts and crafts lessons for children, musical ensemble, and symposium with the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Pilas Island. Also in attendance during the symposium were private and public stakeholders coming from various sectors of society.
