Typhoon Haiyan: Rebuilding Project Underway

December 30, 2013

Rebuilding in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) is now underway in Leyte, Philippines. The first project has our United Church of God crew rebuilding the family home of Gerald Misigal. It’s a joint venture by Good Works and LifeNets.

Thank you to all who are working together to help those who lost their homes. This is just the beginning of our rebuilding efforts for our brethren in Leyte affected by super-typhoon Yolanda.

We are very pleased to report that donations to the Good Works Philippines Disaster Relief fund (now at almost $100,000) are very encouraging and will help greatly in restoring the living conditions of our brethren there.

Please take a moment to view a video interview with Gerald Misigal and see his home being rebuilt by UCG volunteers. The video was put together by the Philippine office.

  2. May God give the building squad(s) all the power, blessings and wisdom to rebuild every single home/structure that our Philippine disaster-stricken brethren need!

    This project is love in action. What a great example of different members of Christ’s Body living thousands of miles apart fulfilling their functions for the good of Christ’s stricken brethren and those connected to them.

    “Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear” (Isa.59:1)

    “And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?” (2Chr.20:6)

    “And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.” (1Cor.12:26)
