OVERFLOW 2016: A Christmas Gift-giving to the Tribes

More than a year ago,  the term “Overflow” was coined for Christmas celebration in our field areas. This started in Sitio Singawan, Aurora. Overflow talks about Jesus’ outpouring love being manifested to people through His children in the areas we serve and the overflow of God’s blessing to us to bless others.


We celebrated Jesus with the Aeta tribe in Tarlac Province and Dumagat tribe in Aurora Province last December. We saw the need of building sanitary toilets and potable water system in the Aeta community, thus we decided to raise funds for this and make this a Christmas gift for them. We were just able to build one sanitary toilet and water filtration system due to time constraints. We will build the remaining toilets this 2017.

After the busy and tiring days have passed, we fellowshipped with the community over spaghetti. The kids were ecstatic!

The following week, we went to Aurora Province to celebrate Overflow. We will conduct Dental Mission for them but due to unfortunate events, it didn’t push thru. The weather was not also good that time, the river is high with raging currents due to non-stop raining the past days. Despite this situation, we celebrated Christmas with the Dumagats and Tagalogs. We thank God for a sunny weather that day. They just wished to receive an apple and orange this Christmas, yet they received more! It was really wonderful to see their smiling faces as we fellowship with them. More so, the joy they have received as we shared the love of Jesus .
