New to His Healing Hands
Previous His Healing Hands Team Members:
Ana Provido (left) with 2017 team members.
Ana accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord & Savior as a high school senior in the Philippines. Right after her conversion, she joined a local church where she served in various ministries, including Children’s Ministry, Choir, AWANA Youth Group Ministry and Extension Classes. As a working student, she finished her bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and One Year Bible College in 1989. Then the Lord called her into the full-time ministry when she married a pastor, Romeo Provido, in 1990. God has blessed them with 3 children who are now adults.
While serving in the Philippines, Ana focused on the ministry and resigned on her secular job to help her husband. They pioneered a church in 1998 in Antipolo where His Healing Hands (HHH) served twice in 2001 and 2003.
The Lord called them to lead a church in Temecula, USA in 2007 where her husband is the Senior Pastor. Ana is involved in various ministries of their Temecula church, including the Young Moms Growth Group as well as the Nursery Department. She is also the Ministry Director for Global Missions of Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church.
In 2015, Ana joined HHH’s Medical Mission in the Philippines where she served as an Intern. She felt that it was a blessing to go back to her country after many years. She was given the opportunity to lead the HHH team in 2016 and 2018.
When not leading teams for HHH, Ana works full-time with a local non-profit organization as a Job Coach for adults with developmental disabilities.
Our team members usually come from different parts of the country. For this reason, we will have at least one ZOOM video conference meeting prior to departure.
We will be conducting out-patient medical clinics in and around Tabaco City, Albay Province. Tabaco City is a medium sized city located southeast of Manila on Luzon island. We are planning to travel to the Philippines at the end of May.
This is the fourth year of ministry for His Healing Hands in the Philippines. Over a decade ago HHH worked in the Philippines doing disaster relief work. Now we have partnered with Baptist Bible Church of Tabaco. The ministry area is in the shadow of the Mayon volcano which is still active. The team will serve the medical needs of people all around the Albay District on the island of Luzon.
In addition to the medical team, a pastor will also join this team to help facilitate evangelistic events around the city. These will include daytime events targeted to groups such as police, military, educators, government officials, and prisoners. An evening all-age festival will cap off the week of ministry.
We will plan to depart the United States on Thursday and arrive in Tabaco City on Saturday following an overnight stay in Manila. We will have a team meeting that afternoon or evening as this will be the first time all team members will be together.
Sunday we will attend church with our local host and meet those who will be working with us as interpreters, patient registration volunteers, and helpers.
Monday through Thursday we will do the medical clinics. Getting to the clinic locations will usually take about an hour by bus or car. The clinics are generally done in public buildings or schools but can sometimes be done outdoors if no other facilities are available.
There will be opportunities for sightseeing on Friday. The team will begin its homeward journey on Saturday.
