“Vacation to Mission: How God took my plans, and gave me His” by Alvin Ong

My story’s lesson could be summarized to this: God’s plan is always higher than ours. Sometimes we make our own plans thinking that things could not be better, then God turns the tide on us and things don’t go our way. But little do we know that God is just setting us up for His plans, which are always far better than ours.

Two months ago, My friends and I planned a trip to Carles, Iloilo to visit Isla Gigantes. The excitement I felt back then was no equal however to the dismay that replaced it when I found out that the beautiful island had been destroyed by Supertyphoon Yolanda. But the disappointment i felt wasn’t becaus my vacation plans wouldn’t push through. It was a dismay driven by a God-impressed compassion for the people who had been affected by the storm surge.

Volunteer’s Appreciation Night and Christmas Party

wiredtoserve2

The values and proactivity of a church is strongly defined by the values and proactivity of its volunteers. December 13, 2013 in the evening, we celebrated the efforts and work of Victory Iloilo’s fine ministry volunteers.

The night was highlighted by fellowship and encouragement gained from each other, and a night full of fun as our church leaders spent the night building each other up in faith and in the word, through extending service and love to one another. A special word of encouragement was shared by Lead and Discipleship Pastor, Pastor Raffy Gonzaga, and also from Bishop Juray Mora, Senior Pastor of Victory Iloilo.

Ministry heads were also given the opportunity to express their gratitude to their co-workers in their respective areas of service.

The night was also highlighted by the offical announcement of the leadership’s faith goal to break ground for our building project, March of next year.

Here are the photos of some of the highlights.

rebuild yolanda

Through your efforts and generosity, Project Rebuild has provided relief assistance to areas in Estancia, San Dionisio, Lemery, Sara, Carles and Roxas City.

In partnership with Alphacrest Foundation and Southern Iloilo ministerial fellowship, the relief effort provided more than 1,500 packs of relief goods in 12 different barangays.

Supertyphoon Yolanda left great destruction in Northern Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan and Northern Antique. But what was meant for evil and discouragement, God turned into an opportunity for us to bless. Iloilo City was spared from the wrath of Yolanda (international name- Haiyan), and many Ilonggos took that as a call to respond.

Through this, we have now been given this privilege to help others and to minister to them as well.

We thank everyone who responded to this call to help others by generously giving, volunteering and spreading the word for us about this project. We pray that God will reward you abundantly for your heart for helping others.

And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
Isaiah 58:10

#ProjectRebuild (For Victims of Yolanda)

ILOILO: As of 5am, Iloilo City has remained peaceful, rainless but many areas still without power. The city DRRMC reported 4,081 families, 16,847 individuals affected housed in 81 evacuation centers.

- PIA6 News Alert

Through God’s faithfulness, Yolanda has finally passed through and exited the Philippines. Just as Jesus commanded the storm in the past, today He still takes controls of tempests and has commanded Yolanda to leave the Philippines a day early.

Now we face the challenge of more than 4,000 families with ruined homes, lost property, hungry children and battered bodies. We now have this great opportunity of extending God’s love to them, and being an example of compassion and proactivity.

Victory Iloilo is mobilizing Project Rebuild to gather donations (food, water, clothing and blankets) for families across 81 evacuation centers in Iloilo. For such donations, feel free to drop them off at the center starting today from 9am to 6pm.

Your involvement is key!
