Relief Operations Day 2: Church and Government Working Together
We have learned a very important lesson when it comes to helping out during calamities. Partner with Local Government Units for easier and more efficient distribution of goods. This is our Day 2 of Relief Operations with San Juan. We had almost 60+ volunteers who worked with us on the 2nd day. It was nice to see a lot of volunteers from our church helping out the city government. And to those who gave and delivered their relief goods to the San Juan Arena, thank you very much!!!

For the packing of our relief goods, we would put 2 kilos of rice, one canned good (sardines or corned beef), two biscuits, and noodles. The Local Government Unit spearheaded by Congressman JV Ejercito and Mayor Guia Gomez then distributes it to different barangays in San Juan. A different truck that carried fresh and purified drinking water were delivered also. I am amazed at how systematic and orderly the relief goods were being distributed. Thanks to the San Juan police, DPWH of San Juan and the Bureau of Fire Protection who made this possible.

Our good mayor Guia Gomez also came to encourage the volunteers. So blessed to have a mayor who loves God and her constituents.
Reassuring Mayor of our heart to serve the city.
