We have some good news and bad news. The good news is that Iglesia ni Cristo is conducting a medical and dental mission today, extending help to more than a million people. The bad news is that some roads have been closed since yesterday to make way for the mission. The bonus--and perhaps the worse news--is that number-coding is not lifted today, according to MMDA's Twitter account last night.
