EFC Nueva Viscaya – Typhoon Ulysses Relief Operation
By Ptr. Jennyboy Cose
Four consecutive typhoons struck the Philippines; typhoon Rolly, Siony, Tonyo, and Ulysses. And two of these were super typhoons, Rolly and Ulysses. Many Filipinos were affected, most of them lost their houses, livelihood, and some valuables, but the most painful thing is the loss of their loved-ones.
Everyone doesn’t expect the toughness it would bring despite the warning in the news. It was distressing for the victims of these typhoons primarily in this time of the pandemic.
Nueva Viscaya is one of the places severely hit and affected. In history, many typhoons struck Nueva Vizcaya before, but this is the first time for them to see flood everywhere. Some of them slept with their relatives nearby.
In this time of difficulties, people were frustrated, they lost their hope, and many were distressed while confusion crept in on how to start anew. But because of those people who have a generous heart, it lightened the load for everyone who was affected by the typhoon.
We, in Evangel Family Church in Solano, are so grateful and blessed for the assistance provided by JECPP and Pastor Jethro Novero.
We incredibly appreciate the generosity; our hearts are overwhelmed by the blessings we received. Surely our God will give back a hundred-fold of what they gave. Glory to God!
