Our sister, Nora, has been a faithful disciple in the Philippines for the past 13 years. The last five years have been very difficult for her as she battles Stage 3 acute myeloid leukemia. She has had endured to heart valve surgeries, chemo treatments, and now she faces radiation treatment as the next step in her medical plan.
The road ahead of her will be challenging, but she is hopeful. Our sister is in great need of financial support for her medical expenses. Please consider donating to help her in her journey for better health.
Jhona has been a disciple for 12 years. In July 2021 she was diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer. In order to attack the cancer, they had to act quickly and perform surgery. Soon after she started chemo – therapy treatment and this month she has more medical appointments and treatments scheduled.
Jhona’s journey has been challenging, but her faith is helping her to power through. Her medical needs have been extensive and cost-prohibitive. Our sister is in great need of help as she continues to work on getting better.
RJ, is a disciple in one of the southern sectors in the Philippines. RJ suffers from an incurable condition that requires him to receive dialysis treatments for the rest of his life. The members of his region have been very supportive and provided him with funds from the benevolence fund to help him with his expenses, but unfortunately they cannot cover all of his needs.
Support for this brother in need will help to offset his medical expenses and allow him to meet basic needs. Your love and consideration is greatly appreciated!
Lito and Raissa have been faithful disciples for 28 years. Their commitment to God despite the many challenges they face is truly admirable. Lito has had a very difficult year. He is diabetic and recently had to endure surgery, a heart attack, dialysis, and worst of all – the loss of his eldest son to Covid.
Lito has been a hardworking leader and is part of our ministry in Paranaque. His faith has been a beacon and inspiration to so many. Sadly, their financial condition has worsened despite his business and the church’s help.
Their family has incurred over $30,000 in expenses and they are dire need of assistance. Your support for this incredible family will make a world of difference.
Dear Brothers and Sisters
I am writing this letter on behalf of Ms. Kristyl Errua, to ask for financial assistance for her medical expenses.
She has been a disciple from Makati Sector, ICOC Philippines since January of 2009. She is currently employed in and is the eldest among four siblings. Two are still in college and 1 in Taiwan employed as factory worker. Her parents live in the province of Leyte in the eastern part of the Philippines which was also affected by typhoon Odette.
Kristyl was diagnosed with Adrenocortical Carcinoma, a malignant tumor, more than a week ago. On December 15, 2021 she underwent an exploratory laparotomy to remove her tumor. The size of the tumor is 15 cm and necessitated 17 bags of blood transfusion to maintain her blood pressure.
Her company insurance has already reached its maximum limit of P240,000.00. To date, her hospital bill has reached more than a million pesos excluding the professional fees of the attending physicians. Though she will be covered by Philippine Health Insurance, a national health insurance program of the Philippine government, with the huge amount of her medical expenses much help is needed to defray the cost.
We already reached out to our brothers and sisters the church here in Makati Sector and friends outside of church to raise funds for financial assistance. To date, my family has raised more than P30,000.00 and hoping and praying that more will come in.
In this regard, may we also knock on your benevolent hearts for financial assistance to help our sister in the Lord.
Kristyl is awaiting the result of her biopsy to determine the stage level of the cancer upon which she will undergo radiation or chemotherapy treatment.
May the love of Christ be with you always.
Eileen has been a strong and courageous disciple of more than 20 years in the Papua New Guinea church. When she was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer she knew she had to seek proper healthcare which lead her to the Philippines.
Her healthcare journey will be a long one. What she needs most urgently is your help to raise funds to get the care she needs. The money raised will go towards pre-treatment tests, treatment, surgery, inpatient accommodations, and any other costs including post treatment follow up checks. We need your help brothers and sisters! And we are so grateful for any donation you can make.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings of peace!
We, sisters by blood and in faith - Jennie, Tina, and Jona are disciples of ICOC Philippines for 21 years. We would like to humbly ask for your help.
Last August 05, 2021, our 74-year-old father, Pedrito "Pete" , had abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery at the Philippine Heart Center. After many surgeries, our father, sadly passed away. The medical treatments that our father underwent were very costly and now that he has passed we are working towards paying the debt while also juggling funeral expenses and our own finances. It has been a very difficult road for us and we are kindly seeking your support. May God bless!

Shortly after a group of brave brothers and sisters embarked on a mission trip launched from the capital of Myanmar, COVID began to spread throughout the world. Since their mission team began, many have learned about the truth of Christ. The team is still faithfully spreading the Word, but they are in need of assistance. Civil unrest, job loss, and COVID cases have made things increasingly difficult to pay for basic needs. The couple named above leads the team and their entire team is courageously serving those in need. Any support is appreciated!

My name is Douglas Tyrone Leyva and I have been a disciple for more than 25 years, and my wife has been a disciple for almost 20 years now. We’ve been married for almost 7 years now and have a one year old boy son. We’ve been living in the Philippines for three years now and are part of the Rizal Church. It’s been a privilege to serve the church here and everywhere we’ve been to. Last month, our whole household was struck with covid. We couldn’t believe it, since we’d been so cautious for over a year. First, my Aunt Amparo fell very sick and my wife and I were in close contact with her, taking care of her. Unfortunately she passed away after three days. A couple of days later, we found out she had covid and that’s when we all eight of us were advised to go into quarantine and get swabbed for covid. Sure enough the next day all of us except for one of my sisters tested positive for covid, even our one year old. He started having a fever and although he wasn’t gasping for air, his oxygen levels were starting to drop. We rushed him to ER, but they didn’t want to take responsibility for him. They kept telling my wife that he was feeling well and to go home. My wife told them she would leave as soon as he was either stable or we had found a suitable place for him. In the meantime, my wife kept him on oxygen support while we were calling up hospitals, doctors, and anyone who could help us get the medical assistance my son needed at the moment. About 12 hours later, my son and my wife were admitted at a hospital where they didn’t have a pediatrics section for covid, therefore they had to stay among adults who had covid. This was a risk we were willing to take because he needed oxygen support and other medical interventions. The few days were tough, since he was in critical condition and there was only one nurse for 13 patients. My wife had to continuously check for his vitals just to make sure he was still with us. He had to be administered stronger antibiotics because the first ones were enough. Thankfully we were able to hire a full time nurse to help my wife out with my son and by God’s Grace, he responded well to all the medication and they were able to go home after 10 days. My mother on the other hand, is still in ICU, sadly. She’s been battling there for almost a month now. Even though she was admitted early because she had a history of pneumonia, her health has been deteriorating day by day.
It’s been so challenging and heartbreaking to see her in this condition. We’ve been praying to God to be surrendered with His will. On our finances part, Samuel's bill was P200,000 we were able to have discount from health insurance of 40,000 and was able to pay the bill from our families savings and from the help of relatives and churchmates. However, my mother's bill is approximately around 2.5Million Pesos. We are working so hard to pay in whatever means but it is not enough as she is still in the hospital battling her life. Whatever amount from any help of the organization, we would be grateful and thankful.
