Brethren from the ecclesiastical districts of Bislig City, Tandag City, Surigao del Sur, and Misamis Oriental benefited with fresh vegetables from the backyard gardening (gulayan sa bakuran), a project launched by the Church Administration almost two years ago.
This week is the first harvest of various kinds of vegetables planted by the brethren in their respective backyards as the project was relaunched by the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) a month ago. They harvested tomato, okra, camote tops, eggplant, onions, malunggay, lemon grass, chili, leeks, among others. Jorge Balagosa and his family from the Local Congregation of Mangagoy, Ecclesiastical District of Bislig City, Surigao del Sur harvested fresh vegetables. It was very helpful to them especially these days that they are also under the community quarantine due to Covid-19.
In the Ecclesiastical District of Tandag City, Surigao del Sur many of the brethren who participated in the project also harvested. James Darylle Reyna, who harvested vegetables after a month of participating in the backyard gardening said, “This is a great help especially that many of us have no income in this past few months because of the imposed enhanced community quarantine.” Not only were they able to put food on their table but they were also able to share their harvest with their neighbors.
Many brethren gave thanks to the Lord God for He used the Church Administration to launch such activity that will help them in this kind of crisis. ― With reports from INC News section.
