FMI-CRCC Relief Operations Continue...



Watch FMI Aid Relief Operation Team Batch 2 distribute donations to flood victims of Paete, Laguna. Maybe the flood is no longer the buzz of the media but it doesn't mean we stop helping too. In fact, we found out that there are still places suffering from the flood. We do our best to help those in need and we thank God and you for enabling us to do just that.

REPORT: The FMI Aid Relief Operations Batch 2 was a great success. We saw with our very own eyes the current living conditions of the flood victims (as seen in this video). They really needed our help. Rhea & Thad French (in-charge of this mission), picked up donations from different schools and places in Tagaytay. FMI Tagaytay Fellowship members continue to support our efforts and brought their donations to the mission center. We packed 250 grocery bags. 

The FMI Aid Relief Operations team was made up of 12 volunteers. We arrived at the Paete Science Business College before midday on September 8. Our contact pastor said that the people arrived much earlier. After sharing the "Good News" we distributed the goods. Despite the very hot weather, we felt tremendously blessed to be part of this cause. The people expressed their heartfelt gratitude towards the team. They said that this kind of help extended to them means a lot especially during this hard times. Some ray of hope was restored and brought about smiles on their faces. We also blessed the pastors from 7 different churches who helped and partnered with us in this effort. They prepared lunch for us too and prayed for our team.

On our way back to base, we first drove around the town of Paete to see the areas where the flood victims live. Unfortunately, a lot of them are still under the water. There is little hope that the water would dry out sooner because the flood was an overflow of the water from Laguna de Bay. 

We really praise God for using FMI to help the people affected by calamities and to bless them with spiritual and material needs. We want to thank everyone who stand with us and believe with us that our faith is better demonstrated by doing what Jesus did... LOVE IN ACTION.

Matthew 25:34-36 "Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
