Ministry Update: Tanauan Leyte Second Time Around
Dear Friends and Loved Ones,
Next week we are going back to the typhoon-ravaged province of Leyte. I received a call from Mayor Tecson of Tanauan, Leyte, & in response to his request, we are going back there this dec18-22. The Mayor requested help to rebuild/rehab his town’s schools so the children can go back to their classes this January. We are thinking of adopting the barangay (village) school of Cabuynan, Tanauan. Our team visited this village before, & we would like to see & check on the patients we treated & operated on the last time we were there.
We also plan to do the following in Cabuynan: needs assessment, stress debriefing (which we did among victims of Typhoon Sendong here in our city of Cagayan de Oro), medical/surgical clinic, & Christmas cheer thru gift-giving to the school kids. We hope & pray God will enable all of us to help them even on a long term basis as we move from RELIEF TO REBUILD AND REHABILITATION TO RESTORATION of their lives and livelihood… all these by the GRACE OF GOD FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
Thank you all for standing in the gap on behalf of the Filipino people especially those who are victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
Allan and Blessie
