God has blessed our efforts today towards the Yolanda Appeal.
With the foundational support of Pinoy employees working at the CBA Parramatta Offices, we raised $1,957.60 today.
From this experience, I personally gained an insight into the spirit and methodology of ANCOP. I’ve had my ‘lo-bat moments’ but I was always encouraged. It’s really different when CFC is caretaking. Today was definitely a team effort of CFC and non-CFC Filipinos. Even management was surprised with the turnout. People lined up in 40 degree heat to participate.
The problem of being confronted with a hungry crowd (who were not strangers – as they were our workmates and bosses) was really testing. We even ran out of supplies twice and needed to do two trips to Woolworths in the space of 1 hour!!! Last night, [when] I did my 3rd subject MBA exam - It surprisingly went really well. I felt guided….So even when the setbacks were mounting, I [did not feel the need to cross] the line from peace to panic.
God really [have] a heart for the poor, and he blesses all who share in His same heart. I felt so blessed to have my CFC brothers and sisters surround me at work. I received encouragement at just the right times. I pray that this little we have raised multiply at the faithful and capable hands of CFC and ANCOP in the Philippines.
