The Oikos Community was so thankful for the visit of Dr. Vic and Mary Jane Trinkus, the director of The Poor Household of God, to our mission in Borongan City, Eastern Samar! The Trinkus’ stayed for about a month, going on Mission to the areas affected by Super Typhoon Odette, joining the Holy Week and Easter services and celebrations and just living and working with the Sisters in Oikos Village. The entire mission was so blessed by their visit!!
