MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! HAPPY HANNUKAH!!! SEASON’S GREETINGS!!!
To all of our benefactors and donors of The Poor Household of God Family, we would like to wish you all the best this holiday season!! We thank you for your love and support of our beloved Oikos Sisters and their Mission in the Philippines! Without your generous giving, the Oikos Sisters would not be able to do the work that they do in the city of Borongan, in the many barrios surrounding the city and in their region of Eastern Samar.
The Oikos Sisters send their warmest regards to all of you and want you to know that you are in their prayers this holiday season and throughout the whole year. Because they too are experiencing the hardships and difficulties of CoVid19, they appreciate all the more your generosity and kindness to them.
One of the Christmas traditions in the Philippines is Christmas caroling. From December 16th until the New Year, the streets all throughout the Philippines are filled with the music of children, teens and adults singing carols with creative homemade instruments at their neighbors’ homes, and are usually given pesos or candy for their songs. It is a tradition the Oikos Mission participates in each year to our local benefactors…and it is a completely amazing and fun experience!!
This year because of the pandemic, caroling in the Philippines is restricted, so the Oikos Mission has gone techno!! THIS VIDEO WAS CREATED AT THE NEW CHURCH IN OIKOS VILLAGE, ST. FRANCIS CHURCH!! Please enjoy the video below as our gift to you for your support of the Oikos Sisters, enabling us to fulfill our mission to help them reach out to all in need. You are very treasured!!
WISHING ALL OF YOU A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR FULL OF GOD’S BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS OF GOOD HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW!!
