The Navigators through the Emmaus Journey (EJ) were able to help the Claretian community and seminary in a small way in the midst of devastation of supertyphoon Yolanda.
EJ responded to their request for chainsaws to cut timber out of fallen trees that would be used to build and repair houses. Also, per the request of Father Rene Manubag, Eseng Victolero was also able to talk about the topic Culture and the Gospel of Salvation to twelve graduating philosophy students who hail from five Southeast Asian countries. The Navigators will also be facilitating the training of their community workers composed of priests and laymen. They will learn about sustainable agriculture in the Mount Carmel Development Academy in Bansalan, Davao del Sur. Father Rene Manubag and his team extend their gratitude to the ministry of the Navigators.
On the other hand, the beneficiaries of the help we extended to Camotes include the parents of one of the contacts of Weng Amper, a Navigator staff based in Baguio. We provided GI sheets to four families to assist them in rebuilding their homes.
