Doing Our Part To Bring Relief

Devastation at MalapascuaIn these past few days we have seen unfathomable damage across the Philippines. In Tacloban, a city that took the full brunt of the storm, it is estimated that ten thousand are dead. That is just one city. The government is still trying to make contact with other cities that we still have no communication or information from. As for northern Cebu there is still no relief. Our church took some supplies to our missionary pastor and his family on Malapascua island on Monday. When I stepped on the island the people thought we were a news crew surveying the damage.  Miraculously the church building is still standing, the Bible didn’t even get wet. Yet others lost everything. The island is completely devastated-church members lost their homes, and you could find boats and furniture strewn all over the island. While Malapascua is not receiving a lot of media attention, the eye of the storm passed right over them. Our church will be focusing our resources to help these people on Malapascua Island. Many of you have contacted us and asked if you could help. If you want to help you can send money to Travis Lewis at Word for the World…marked Philippine Disaster Relief Fund. The address is P.O. Box 849 Rossville, Georgia 30741-0849. The phone number is 706-866-8826. Pastor Travis is our missionary partner in Cebu. He shares our burden to help the Filipino’s through this crisis! 100 percent of what you send will help these people rebuild their lives. We sent our first load of supplies on Monday. Our next shipment will leave for Malapascua on Thursday and then again on Friday. People need food, water, medicine, and basic hygiene necessities. We want to help these survivors get back on their feet. As we minister to their physical needs we will also look for ways to minister to their souls. Please keep praying that many would come to know Christ!

    We’re definitely praying for you, that your help and kindness to these people will turn them to Christ. I can’t help but think that maybe Pastor Walt was put there for such a time as this.

    Bro Chris ~ Thank you for all you are doing to help Malapascua Baptist Church and the island!!! We are so glad our paths crossed and are rejoicing just knowing that the church jeepney is loaded with relief supplies and headed north! Praise God!!! Rom 8:28 – God makes no mistakes – we are seeing now just how God has worked everything out with Pastor Walter – and N Cebu Baptist Church!
