SELF moved out of the congested metropolis and leased an old abandoned house in Cavite province. In true TC fashion, the staff and residents got the Rodeo Hills Facility fully operational in two weeks. However, despite continuously improving the property, SELF was made to pay increasingly large amounts of rent in the succeeding years. The situation eventually became untenable and it was time to go.
SELF began the search for a place it could call home. It wound up investing all its savings on the deposit of a one-hectare, hillside property with an unfinished three-story building in Talisay, Batangas. Again with the generosity of friends and sponsors and working with a will, SELF built its first permanent home. On June 17, 2000, the Taal View House compound was inaugurated.
In the years to come, SELF continued to grow and so did the number of buildings in its compound. In 2015, SELF acquired the adjacent property where it plans to erect a Training Building where Martin and his team of dedicated staff plan to provide formal courses on the TC.
Back in 1992, not in his wildest dreams could he imagine what SELF would grow into in 25 years. Indeed, when Martin surrendered to Divine Providence, everything else was provided.
