Baras Rizal Team – Dec 2015

By the grace and mercies of our loving and sovereign God

a. We have been able to interview around 300 families in our target area in Baras Rizal. Two barangay tanod assisted us while we did our house-to -house interview.

b. We met there to pray and lunch fellowship together.

c. Our woman of peace there is Sis. Irene. She is one well known among the people there because she has a small business. She lends rice, water, slippers, wet and dry foods in the community.
