Repair and clean-up work has begun at the Tagaytay Retreat and Training Center which is temporarily closed after suffering damage due to Typhoon Glenda (international name Rammasun).
Glenda battered Southern Luzon where Tagaytay City is situated during the early hours of July 16, damaging the roofs and ceilings of the retreat center's dormitory buildings, shattering windows and glass doors, and toppling trees.
CCT President Ruth Callanta said, "Through all this we rely on God's grace and heed his command in I Thessalonians 5:16 - 18 that we are to 'Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will in Christ Jesus'."
"We will build back better, making TRTC a more comfortable and welcoming venue for a wide range of functions and activities."
