Buklod members from the Local Congregation of Marseille, France in the Ecclesiastical District of Western Europe learned how to make face masks using simple materials on April 26, 2020.
Rolando Mendoza, head deacon overseeing the congregation’s Christian Family Organizations (CFO), said, “Despite the distance, through modern technology, brethren are able to see each other.”
Aside from making D-I-Y face masks, proper hygiene and health precautions outside and inside the house were also conveyed to the brethren.
“Activities such as this result in activeness among the brethren, they feel good and happy … while bonding with each other,” Rolando added.
As the French government encourages their citizens to do their part in preventing further spread of the current pandemic, the brethren also strive to participate in helping the society and strengthening their bond of brotherhood.
“The brethren feel the love of the Church Administration with this activity … we are thankful to them, even if the brethren are at home, there are activities for them,” said Rolando, expressing the collective sentiment of the congregation. — With reports from INC News Section
