Good day! We would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude and thanks to all of you who have extended your love and concern to us, your SFL Tacloban Family.
Our experiences during and after ST Yolanda had greatly devastated our lives thinking for once that we could no longer make it. With all the uncertainties during that time, we never thought we would still see you guys and continue our passion of knowing God more. Hopelessness is, undoubtedly, the word that describes how we feel during that time. Seeing many houses greatly damaged, corpses everywhere and people starving to death. Everything just seem so unusual. Both the living and the dead are begging for mercy asking for help but it seemed so impossible. Even the government who is supposed to help us is hesitant to give us any aid. We are just so thankful and blessed seeing you guys, after days of starvation, delivering tons of goods. Sino and di mapapaluha to see our FFL family with smiles filling our empty stomach and giving us so much care that we never expected. From the people who contribute, the volunteers who packed and delivered the foods up to the people who were braved enough to come to our very unstable city – you are our true martyrs, our true saints and our true warriors. Sa gitna ng laban di niyo kami iniwan.
And with the WSC experience, you have proven once again that we are family. The care and comfort you extended to us asserts your unconditional love for your brother and sisters in need. Thank you for allowing us tell our story and for letting us forget for a while that we are victims of Yolanda. This may be one of the positive remembrances that Yolanda gave us – that of knowing our true family and the people who never failed to care for us. Daig pa naman and nanalo sa Lotto sa sobrang saya na naidulot niyo. No wonder this community is always blessed because it is surrounded by people who live like Christ.
Rest assured that we will go back home as renewed witnesses of Christ. Damo nga salamat at babangon uli ang SFL Tacloban!
