Felix (76) and his wife Jesintha (75) have been faithful and serving disciples of the Ceylon Christian Church for 22+ years.  They have reached out to many to follow Christ.

They are a hard working couple who have managed their living with the earnings from their cultivation and their married children have also supported them partly to manage their expenses.

Felix & Jesintha’s health conditions have not been very good in the last couple of years, and the country’s current economic crisis has made it worse due to the rising cost of essentials such as food and medicines.  It has been very difficult for them to manage their expenses in the recent times.

During these difficult times, they have requested for financial support to manage their medical bills.

Thanks to generous ETF donors, this need has been met!

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.

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!
