Previous His Healing Hands Team Members:
Ana Provido (left) with 2017 team members.
Ana Provido had been involved with HHH even when she was still in the Philippines many years ago. When God called them to lead a local church in Temecula in 2006 called Cornerstone Christian Baptist Church, she and her husband, Pastor Romy joined again the Mission Trips. She joined first as Intern Team Leader in the Philippines and then led 2 Mission Trips after that.
She is a pastor’s wife, has 3 grown up children and 3 grandchildren. She is Bible Study Leader for Young Moms and Grandparents. She is also teaching the Pre-school class. She is also the Global Missions Director of CCBC.
“As I am maturing in age, I realized that there is nothing more important than serving our God in any capacity. It is very rewarding to witness people with changed lives and newer perspective. I may not have lots of material possessions here on earth, but I know that I have invested a lot to heaven. I wanted to spend my life serving Him with all my strength,” Ana said.
She used to work for adults with developmental disabilities for almost 10 years. As of now, she is working as Activities Assistant in one of the memory care facilities in the area. For 2 years break due to covid, she is now back to lead the 5 th year Medical Missions in Tabaco City, Albay, Philippines.
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.
