“Nothing gives me greater joy than to be able to share the love of Jesus Christ to people. And the Gospel is more effectively preached if we have something to give to them to meet their immediate needs, like these relief goods,” said Pastor Dan, who has been one of our partners in our disaster response project for Typhoon Odette in Negros Occidental.
Pastor Danilo B. Condes started pastoring at the age of 24 in the humble city of Candoni. The path has not been easy. Nevertheless, he persuades. “This is my commitment to God. Quitting will only lead me to destruction.”
He adds that while unfortunate events like disasters and calamities are inevitable, “God will always be our hope and strength.” That is also how he encouraged the members of their church when they experienced the blow of Typhoon Odette destroying their houses and livelihood.
Pastor Dan and his co-servant wife extend their appreciation to the help Operation Blessing delivered to their city. As a pastor, he knows that the greatest human need is a Savior — Jesus Christ. Next to that is food. “The Gospel is more effectively preached if we have something to give to them to meet their immediate needs, like these relief goods.”
Today, after 30 years, the church has already multiplied into several different towns and barrios. Ministering with him that day was Pastor Moimar Lacsao who started as one of Pastor Dan’s members. Now, they are both in the business of winning and shepherding souls for Jesus as pastors.
Sharing the Gospel is good, but way better when coupled with tangible blessings that the people could see as a representation of God’s love. You can be part of this mission by supporting us through GIVING or VOLUNTEERING.
