Four typhoons keep medical mission busy
One relief team was assisting victims of a typhoon that struck country’s Albay province when another typhoon battered the region, church member Gigie Carranza said.
“It was a scene from the Exodus,” Carranza said. “Most people were hurrying to leave their houses to run to a higher place, each one carrying what they could.”
The team weathered the storm and continued to give medical care and food to the victims. During the four-day mission, the team served about 2,500 people, Carranza said.
Members of the Naga City church, the closest congregation to the affected area, made a survey trip to Albay and continues to assist in relief efforts. MARCH for Christ is coordinating additional trips.
“We pray that we will be able to distribute not only material blessings, but also the good news about Christ,” church member Dr. Sam Cariaga said.
