Saturday, January 14, Rev. Glem Melo (Kagay-an Reformed Church) invited pastors and ministry leaders in Cagayan de Oro to attend an inter-church sharing and consultation meeting on ministry to flood victims. Sovereignly, God used that to usher in the formation of Protect The Children CDO (PROTECT), a network of Christian churches and ministries for the protection and rehabilitation of children flood victim-survivors from abuse, neglect, exploitation, violence and other dangers.
The next day, January 15 (Sunday), from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, 19 KRC members went with 8 others from different evangelical churches to visit and conduct a data-gathering survey of the children and families at Calaanan Tent City.
Yesterday, January 22, from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, 13 KRC members went with PROTECT partners and volunteers to conduct the very first Kalingawang Pambata (Fun for Kids) at the Calaanan Tent City. More than 400 children victim-survivors attended the activity. There were games and small group sharing of their flood experiences. The stories they shared were all moving. And God helping and working, we commit to journey with them towards healing and rehabilitation.
Please pray for the children and all our partner churches and ministries.
