I Iive in northern part of Cebu. Half of my province was hit hard as the eye of the storm lands here also. My town wasn’t that bad compared to up north, about 30min drive from where we live it’s where the devastation started to taking place. My dad lives north at Daan bantayan, his house and properties was wiped out that to start all over again is the first thing one can do. Then there are those saints we have around the area and elsewhere like other small islands as we sent disciples to make disciples they we’re very affected too.
We make disciples for years reached up to the 14th generations. All our stories can be found in my sites www.molongnacua.com and other sites that’s link to my site. Have time to scroll them and see how we started living Acts 2:42-47.
Anyway, as an ecclesia we respond by doing anything we could. So we started packing foods, have 300 packs now so far and we aim for 1,000 to help 1,000 saints and their families, at least. Today, we continue packing as foods I order will arrive. Also we sent people to other places to locate them. Like today very early morning at 4 o’clock two disciples went to Ormoc, Leyte to locate one of their families as they have no clear news. And we sent them some monies for that and food to support it. Be praying for their safety now. We also keep sending finances to any extended families that needed helps. Sent two disciples also to check and help my father up north bringing food and whatever. This Saturday is we start distributing what we have. All my family decided to give half of our clothing, towels, slippers, blankets even, etc to help the needy around.
North Cebu is like what you see on the news about Tacloban, it looks like it! Deaths are taking place as well, like one of my uncle’s side down generations were dead. Houses are damaged a lot. It says in news that 98 percent of houses were damaged at north Cebu. Check my fb wall for photos and videos that was taken there by one of the disciples named Albert, when I sent two of them to check on my dad two days after the typhoon they took those videos. (https://www.facebook.com/molong.nacua) Then you see what I just illustrated. Many from Cebu and elsewhere were were shock seeing the videos as none expected it to be hit that hard.
Here are immediate needs. Money to buy food is the first one. I would suggest to be sent it by western union as it’s faster. Second option would be through my paypal account found on my site and third is through bank to bank.
For Western Union use this info below: (Use either these names, to keep WU asking questions)
ROMULOS NACUA or ALBERT PACQUIAO
PILAPILAN, YATI, LILOAN,
CEBU, PHILIPPINES 6002
For Paypal, use my email: (Use either these emails to keep paypal withholding it)
And for bank to bank use:
Bank name: UNIONBANK
Account name: ROMULOS J. NACUA
Address: Mandaue city, Cebu, Philippines 6002
And my cell number if needed is +639237312496
Take note: If you’re currency is in US$, it is better to send it in dollars, do not exchange it to peso. I will be the one to exchange it here in peso in our rate as it is normally higher. I would gain a peso in every $1 you sent. Example, if you send $50 then I can earn another $1 for that amount. And that savings can purchase 1 kilo of good quality rice goof for 5 Filipino people to have a meal! OK
Another way to help:
Second way to help is start collecting clothing, shoes, slippers, toothbrushes, soaps, anything as you meet people everyday share our stories and I am sure they can play their part. There is a way to send it here cheaper in a big box through forex or LBC express. It called BALIKBAYAN BOX, that weight has no limit and anything you can fit in is able. It would reach here 5-6 weeks but it’s okay because it’s not that urgent and immediate compared to food now. As I said, my whole family is deciding to give half of our clothing etc, and other extended families that’s not so affected are happy also to do that.
Well, this relief activities were not really special to us as many of you know that we are already functioning like this almost everyday! We don’t buy and we don’t sell. We only give and receive. Shared Jesus-Life-Together Daily from house-to-house. We help 13 widows around, orphans, needy saints that are among us, and lastly the poor.
Some of you might have read this have shared already what you have, I thank you for that. Many who might like to respond if they knew it. As people are inquiring, please share our stories. It’s good to help, we have tasted the joy for quite sometime now.
Leaving you a quote from Mother Theresa, certainly the hero for this kinds of stuff, she said, “I can do things you cannot do. You can do things I cannot do. But if we work together great things we can do.”
