How has our special offering for the Philippines been blessing our partners there?
Back in November we took a special offering for people in the Philippines effected by various natural disasters. Through the special offering we were able to donate over ¥111,000 to our partners there. Here are some of the things that have already been accomplished in the Dumangas Region:
Warm Christmas greetings from DBCI and DBDAi!
We praise and thank God for the opportunity through HELP that we were able to show the love of God to the house of faith and the community. We have extended help to the churches under the Central Coastline Circuit namely covering Dumangas, Banate, Barotac Viejo, Concepcion and Estancia.
In Dumangas we were able to extend help to two teachers in Dumangas Christian School whose house was totally and partially damaged and to our school the DBDAI.
In San Rafael and Vista Allegre, Barotac Viejo; we were able to help several totally damaged houses and parsonage coursed through the Pastor Marlon. In Banate we were able to give assistance to damaged houses and to Barriga Baptist Church. We were able to help buy two pumpboat motors; and we were able to make monetary donations to various families.
We feel that giving assistance in supporting their livelihood are very important to give the victims of Yolanda the dignity to rise up again and live. When their livelihoods are restored, they can fend for their food, clothing and shelter.
Praying and working for the Lord to continue to touch lives by showing His love,
Prayers, Angie & Brethren
