Weeks after its eruption, the Taal Volcano continued to spew flumes of ash and smoke. Residents within the 14-kilometer danger zone fled to safe areas for refuge. To this day, families who used to live near the crater are suffering in the aftermath of the volcano’s eruption.
Last January 24, together with Operation Blessing, Superbook visited two evacuation centers in San Jose, Batangas to provide disaster relief, medical aid, and spiritual encouragement.
Kids staying at the evacuation centers met Gizmo and had the chance to sing and dance with him. They enjoyed group games and puppet shows. Aside from relief packs, the children also enjoyed Superbook goodies.
The children who looked downcast when the Superbook team arrived beamed with hope after watching Superbook’s “Job”episode. They learned that God can still be trusted even in times of calamity and hardship.
“I learned to count on God and never lose hope in difficult times,” shared Brandon. “Job lost everything, yet he still prayed to God. Let’s continue to hold on to God because He is always guiding us.”
Hans was so excited because “Job” was his favorite Superbook episode. “Job’s sufferings were caused by Satan. Even after losing his family and possessions, Job still trusted God,” he shared.
“Thank you, Superbook, for helping us! Our worries have gone away because you came,” Hans cheerfully said.
