MEDICAL MISSION WITH RADION INTERNATIONAL

A second post typhoon medical mission was conducted at FARM last February 17, 2014 with the help of  RADION International organization which is a Singapore based NGO.  FARM volunteers and Chi Alpha were once more quick to take their posts to serve the people.

Recipients were groups of people that were personally invited by FARM leaders to facilitate follow up. The Berean students once more served as registrars.

People proceeded to consultation as their numbers were  flashed on the monitor. The performance of the 4 young doctors from Singapore was notably commendable as well as of our two FARM doctors.

There was no room for impatience or a dull moment while many wait for their turn with the doctors. The FARM youth set up a live band to entertain people while    Chi Alpha leaders threw  in some surprises every now and then.

Snack time is a must in every medical mission at FARM. We served a deliciously cooked sweet rice porridge (called “wetwet” in Capiz) using manna rice supplied by   Convoy of Hope. At the exit door, each recipient was also given a take home pack of the manna rice.

For the FARM volunteers and Singapore team, the medical mission was a great time of fellowship and serving the Lord together.

FARM VOLUNTEERED FOR OB RELIEF WORK

FARM did not only housed the Operation Blessing staff  during their almost 2-month relief operation here in Capiz, our young people, young professionals, nurses and some doctors also volunteered their services for  medical missions and relief distribution in some if the remote places in Capiz. Every morning at least two army trucks are parked in front of the FARM building to carry the OB staff, FARM volunteers and relief goods to the target area. FARM also gave up the Welcome Lounge to provided storage for the OB relief goods.

COP GAVE TO AoG

As early as a week after Yolanda hit Roxas City, Cathedral of Praise main church in Manila sent a huge shipment of  food packs and water to help the churches in Roxas City with First Assembly as the drop off center.  It took couple of hours to unload the packs and load them to individual vehicles brought by Roxas City pastors who quickly responded to the call for them to pick up the packs. This quick disaster response action  of COP was heart warming to the people of Roxas City who along with those from all 16 towns of Capiz province were badly hit by the typhoon Yolanda.
