When God calls we go.

When God calls we go. Sr. Eppie heard the call to help the evacuees from Marawi City. So every where she went she campaigned hard with a talk and with silence over the plight of our Muslim and Christian brothers and sisters. We went to see and to experience their fears and their pain. We did not know whom and where to go but eventually the hand of God pointed the way. We were able to get in touch with a priest we had never met before. He brought us to the evacuation centers. They had food, water to drink and even to wash their clothes. They had mats. But it was hot and they lacked one thing fans. Rey gave us the tip and so we brought fans.  Look at the “cardboard fan” they were using until we gave them fans. Even though life is difficult see what a small fan can bring –  smiles in their faces.

We also visited home based refugees. We also gave the Diocese of Iligan for their crisis intervention funds to “de stress” the trauma caused by war. We helped with financial blessings that was sent for them through our generous donors, members and friends. Thank you to all who had helped.

May we share with all of you the joy that we have received through the smiles, hand shakes and even embraces from the people we met. It is when people are faced with dire need and deprivation that an act of kindness is appreciated the most. Photo credits: ReyBarn & Sr Menchi
