Led by the resident minister, Brother Ferdinand P. De Dios, the congregation’s members converted part of the house of worship’s compound grounds into a “drive-thru” where people were free to come in and avail themselves of relief packages containing grocery items. The humanitarian activity benefited many homeless individuals as well as those adversely affected by the current pandemic.
Ma. Bienaluz Gomez, head secretary, said, “The Aid to Humanity is very important because it is in this kind of activity we are able to show kindness and generosity. Most importantly, this gives us the chance to introduce and share our true faith to others.”
Reflecting God’s guidance and help to the Church through its administration, Brother Ferdinand said, “Since the Church Administration has launched the Aid to Humanity or Lingap sa Mamamayan, the Church in its entirety has conducted this in various scope, from providing food and safe water to people either in impoverished places in various countries in the world or victims of calamities and disasters, holding medical and dental missions, to providing assistance to and appreciation of government agencies, such as respective local governments, police officers, firefighters, and other frontliners.”
On behalf of the congregation, he added, “We thank God for inspiring the Church Administration to have these activities as we celebrate the 12th anniversary of dynamic and victorious leadership of our most beloved Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo.” — With reports from INC News Section
