Two days ago I received a phone call from a Filipino Methodist couple who are residing in Los Angeles Area (California) . Sorry I can’t mention their
names here. They were in DIRE NEED of housing since by next day, they
would sleep in their dilapidated car parked in a dangerous place of the
city. Knowing this plight, I helped them to find a room or money to pay for their rental room. I am so sorry to say that they also experienced recession
here. I posted my appeal to our Filipino Methodists forum at Yahoo. Immediately, the opinions circulated and shared.
Early morning Bro. Danny Hernaez woke me up after few hours of posting that issue, just to say that he wanted to help the couple although he is in
Houston, Texas. The couple said Bro. Danny could not sleep that night
simply because he was touched and worried about the plight of the
couple. He is committed to help them.
Rev. Roy Padilla promised the couple to find a place for them. But
right now Rev. Manny and Connie Predas of Wilshire UMC temporarily
shared their small domicile so that the couple will not sleep in their car in the freezing night. Rev. Richard Ramos II also promised to help the couple.
The couple really needed help, but still they uphold their faith in God and still hoping that one of these days their predicament will be over and the light at the end of tunnel will be seen.
