It all started when the very active Sis. Nida Ruiz, (former WAF Cebu Archdiocesan President and former WAF Philippines National President) who, that time was an incumbent WAF International Board of Trustee, was called back to heaven by the Lord and Our Lady in the year 2013. It was then unanimously decided upon by the International Board to appoint Bro. Reynald Andales (who was then the incumbent WAF Philippines National President) to replace her vacant seat in the International Board of Trustees of the World Apostolate of Fatima.
