Ministry Update 1-19-21
Now that the holidays are behind us, we are back hard at work doing our best to make a difference each day. Speaking of making a difference, I thought I would share a very special Christmas blessing that our Philippines team was able to be apart of on Christmas day. After the church service that morning, Pastor Ner and his team wanted to check on their precious homeless clients. Merliza, Pastor Ner’s wife, writes:
“My plan is to buy 30 orders of Spaghetti with chicken but when we were at the window of the “drive thru”, we need to wait not less than 30 mins for our order. But since, we will have Christmas fellowship with some Church members at 3:00 pm, we need to minimize our time! And Unexpectedly, I ordered 50 orders of Hamburger and it was already available! This time, our priority are those people with mental illness and the vulnerable ones! But God also knows my desire! As we are roaming around the City, we saw many people sitting on the sidewalk in front of the Regional hospital! I was informed by a fellow Pastor’s wife working in that hospital, those people have patients in that hospital with critical condition and some are patients waiting for available rooms. That’s why, I wanted to bring additional meal every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for them! 50 pieces of Hamburger and fruits is not accidental order! I’m sure, it is God’s way to extend His compassion to these fellows and to make them realize, somebody cares! Thank God for always moving in so mysterious ways! May we all have a MERRY CHRISTmas and Blessed New Year” The heart’s of our Philippines team never ceases to amaze me. I have included a few pictures from that morning .
