Amazing People

In response to Super Typhoon Reming's effects in the Bicol region, the churches of Victory Christian Fellowship (VCF) has mobilized its members (3 weeks ago) to donate cash and goods (food, clothing and building supplies). I am writing this blog to honor the amazing people: men, women and families who responded to the call. In the short period of time our provincial churches headed by Juray Mora (National Director) raised and sent goods plus three hundred thousand pesos. A joint team headed by Raymond de Guzman (VCF Lipa) and Ed Ty (VCF Lucena) made the trip and assessed the real situation.

Our Metro Manila congregations were able to provide substantial donations in the form of canned food and clothing. A first tranche of money and goods was sent. By the time the news trickled down to the rest of our church members the Metro Manila congregations raised 1.1 million pesos in cash. Five hundred thousand was given to Operation Blessing's relief efforts (see blog below: Amazing Lady) while the other 600,000 will be utilized for the rehabilitation of homes of over 90% of the members (including the pastor) of the VCF- Legaspi who were badly affected. Thank you all for your support. Disicpleship is a lot more than a religous term but is about taking action.

Should you wish to participate in this relief effort please send your donations to the Every Nation building at the University Park in Fort Bonifacio. Final day for accepting donations will be on Sunday December 31.
