The relief goods consisted of food packs which included rice, canned goods, biscuits, milk, and coffee. 350 families from 3 districts (Metro Manila – 17 churches, Palawan – 5 churches, and Southern Tagalog – 1 church) received the food packs. These families belong to the communities where a Nazarene church is located. 

NCM Philippines Coordinator, Rev. Jaime Eniceo shared, “We are thankful for God’s provision and for the lives of our pastors and volunteers who helped during the relief operations.”

Pray for the Nazarene Disaster Response Teams and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Philippines.  Geographically, the Philippines deal with disasters like typhoons until the month of December.  Pray that our teams will share the hope and love of Jesus even in challenging situations.
