Big City Blessing

20 11 2011

Us and the team outside of Pakak Elementary School.

We were so blessed by a group of  friends that came from Manila last month. Karen, Calyn (my new favorite name!), Jehan and Jay  travelled for more than 16 hours on the bus in order to serve the people in the village of Pakak. Richel had an idea to get some artist friends together to paint the little elementary school  in Pakak. (The school had been damaged in one of the typhoons last year and still had not been completely restored.) Not only did they spend 2 days painting beautiful murals, but they brought with them boxes and boxes of clothes and household items that were badly needed by the families. This time of year, before the harvest, is a very lean time for rice-farming families. They say that this is the “crisis” time.

The village all came out to help!

I know that the families of Pakak were so thankful for this little group of Manila “movie stars” and their donations and acts of service will not be forgotten. Thank you guys for being Jesus to the families of Kalinga. You blessed all of us at Abundant Grace of God as well!
