Last Thursday we made our third trip to Malapascua to bring relief goods to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. We loaded our church jeDelivering Relief Goods!ep with over 5, 000 packages of noodle soup, 2, 500 cans of meat, and 1000 pounds of rice! It took 3 days to shop and load the jeep! Pastor Travis then left Cebu City at 1 am Friday morning to deliver this relief shipment. They arrived at 5 am and loaded a boat to take everything to Malapascua island. Unloading the boat took 4 hours! The people were so thankful for everything we brought! We packed the goods in bags to be given away. Each member of Malapascua Missionary Baptist Church received enough food for one week. We also gave out 400 relief packages to the people living in the community! Our college guys used theĀ  tarps we brought to provide temporary shelters and even put a tarp on the roof of Missionary Timothy Owens home! They worked tirelessly to pick up debris and help these people move on after the storm. A faithful lady from our church set up a medical clinic for two days and saw over 70 patients. That Sunday they held services and many new people were at church for the very first time! Your sacrifice has made such a difference in the lives of these people! We have trips planned every week for as long as there are funds. If you still want to give, mark your gift…Travis Lewis Philippine Disaster Relief Fund and send it to Word for the World P.O. Box 849 Rossville, Georgia 30741-0849. There is still a great need on this little island. With God’s help these resilient people will recover from the storm!
