Unfortunately, I have to report that I got a decent nights sleep tonight (more than 5 hours.) However, it was sadly due to the fact that I slept in when I was supposed to meet my team at 8am. Yet God works in mysterious ways and I ended up sharing a laugh filled road trip […]

Today we started our first mission, which was to prepare arroz caldo (Filipino version of congee) to over 2100 people in Barangay Caiibaan.

This post arrives a bit late (sorry). We were given a meeting with the mayor of Tacloban, who basically explained to us how Typhoon Yolanda happened and what his experiences were during the storms.

Imagine that your home and everything you have owned was destroyed in a natural disaster. Your government forces you to move away from the coastline (aka the danger zone), towards the mainland where you would be put in temporary housing. Your livelihood as a fisherman is gone because you no longer have a car, or […]

“We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part.
