“I want it done immediately.” – Bro. Eli Soriano.

These were the words that Bro. Daniel Razon received from Bro. Eli Soriano, and shared with the congregation of the Members Church of God International when the former spoke of the “transient home”, a project that he had dreamed of and now has come up for good.

The transient home that Bro. Daniel Razon related was inspired from the film “In Pursuit of Happyness”, which starred Will Smith. The movie shows the concept of a transient (which means temporary) building where the homeless or drifters can pass the night for free and then leave the next day.

The transient home project is supervised by the Kamanggagawa Foundation, a non-profit organization which provides charity projects like medical missions and feeding programs in depressed areas

According to Kuya Daniel, the idea of the transient home had moved him after he watched the film, which was at a certain time prior to the piloting of “Good Morning Kuya” on July 23, 2007.

He communicated his desire for such a charity house to a party-list. However, the proposal had to wait for a year. But thank God, Bro. Daniel has finally closed the deal for the building which will serve the purpose. Now, the transient house has come for real.

Interestingly, the same idea was conceived by Bro. Eli Soriano who also watched the movie at a different time. He called up Bro. Daniel and told him that he had watched a film and how he wanted the realization of a transient house.

Bro. Daniel felt happy as he remarked that he knew what movie his uncle had seen, and that he knew in his heart that they had the same thinking. That was the beginning. Bro. Eli straightway sent money he obtained from his earnings in his small businesses to push the project, which proves that despite his age and physical distance, nothing can hinder God’s work of love and salvation for people and what he should actually profit goes to God’s work.

When I heard about this project the first thing that came across my mind is, How pure and how kind is the heart of the man who conceptualized this project, a non profitable act to reach-out people, not so many people nowadays work and expend money without profiting from it, even the billionaire's of this world, that's is strikingly painful and that's the true. If only Bill Gates and other Multi-billionaire's people would do such things that this humble and poor man can do, we won't see people from across the continents dying out of hunger, homeless, living in unsafe environment, un-educated, suffering from many diseases born out of poverty and the lack of capability to brought theme self to medical institutions

Such kind of act of charity towards people regardless of ethnicity,religious belief, colors etc. should be shouted-out to the four corners of this world thru media exposures and promotion, thus becoming a living example of How the works of God manifest to this man to do such a graceful act of caring for the others.
We can say this man (Bro. Eli Soriano) is truly moved by his belief in the Almighty God in the bible for doing good things to others, as we here from him citing this verse in
Galacian 6: 10
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
