I am Rev John J Wilson aka "Pastor Jack" This is an updated view since the one written last year. As you know we opened the Payatas Baptist Health care and made a big difference in the lives of the poor for a little less than a year however lack of funding caused us to shut down the operation.
We still minister to the people of Payatas. We especially try to minister to the children. We continue to bring them to camp. We brought 65 again this year. We have our one week Vacation Bible School for about 100 children. Our Christmas party went well feeding and sharing the word, giving gifts and having a wonderful time.
However the struggle continues and the funds allow us to do as much as we do and no more.
Type in Pastor Jack Payatas into Google or Yahoo and you can see the things that God has allowed us to do. Imagine if we had the tools to do more.
I just read someone was depressed because they no longer could take their family out to their ritual Saturday night out. Here they get depressed when they can not feed their family at any given time.
This place is worse than Africa and Haiti except that we don't have Oprah or Danny Glover or Franklin Graham coming here to champion the cause.
When Typhoon Ondoy struck last year, hundreds of thousands were on their own.
Our desire is to train the youth for their future. We do it on a small scale and it's measurable and working. With the funding we could turn Payatas around. That's up to the reader.
The story of Payatas Mission Outreach is a simple one. We help the poor and indigent people of Payatas one of the poorest places in the Philippines. I am not so sure anyone outside of the slums of Payatas could write a review for us. We recently opened Payatas Baptist Health Care, Inc. A not for profit health clinic that offers free medical examinations. The people are being diagnosed and healed or referred. People who probably would not have sought medical attention if they had to pay. Not because they are cheap but because they are poor. To get an idea of how we help people go to our photos at http://escobia225.multiply.com/ to see for yourself.
The Payatas Mission Outreach Inc. is a nonprofit organization who help people in Payatas for their medical needs. I experience a lot of depressing situations that this clinic helped a lot of people with no money to buy their medicines but we still give them the medicines. Most hospitals I knew, they don't accept patients without money. I experienced that when my little brother had an appendicitis and the nurse told us that they could not help my brother unless if we had money. My mother told me that I have to go home and borrowed money. TO make the story short, I got the money and my brother was alright. This clinic is a very good help in this community where people could not afford to pay their medical needs. We really need your help to have more medicines, more equipments, and the staff could get enough salary for their family.
