On December 25, what was supposed to be a happy and joyful Christmas Day, was a devastating day for a family in Ligao City. Maria was almost die to give birth and was taken to the hospital to have her second child. That same day typhoon Nina hit the Philippines island hard. There was no electricity in the whole city. Thank God for generators. By the grace of God Maria gave birth to you a beautiful baby boy and welcomed him into their family. But there was something her husband was not sharing with her. You see, the roof of their home was severely damaged and she could not go home with the baby.
Maria and her husband have been faithful Christians at Ligao Baptist Church, she prayed to the Lord, she said, “I’m your daughter, I have been faithful in my tithing”, Maria washes clothes for a living, making $10.00 a day, “please Lord help our family, help our situation with the roof.”
Soon after she prayed our CinA missionary, Gustavo came and brought some relief of food to help the families affected by typhoon Nina. Maria’s Pastor Joel also visited her in the hospital and asked if they needed more that food and she told him about the roof. By the grace of God there was enough money to do both, food for Maria’s family and 25 additional families, and repair the roof.
A few days later Maria’s husband went to church and was approached by Pastor Joel and was given the news his roof would be repaired, he started to cry. Maria went home with her baby, to a safe and secure restored roof and praising God for his goodness and faithfulness. Glory to God!!
