Manila was not affected by the Typhoon but areas in central Philippines were terrible devastated.

The worst affected area is in northern Leyte and particularly the City of Tacloban as well as parts of the large island of Samar. It is very difficult at the moment to get any personal news except what is coming over on the News Channels.

However other areas are also affected and needing help such as northern Panay, Bohol and parts of Cebu. There are Reformed Baptist churches in these areas.

Some of the members of Cubao Reformed Baptist Church have family members in these areas. We are seeking to contact them and learn more of how we can help. However in many areas communications are down.

CRBC and our CCM Foundation will be seeking to help with relief. We cannot do much at the present moment due to lack of communications almost everywhere in the typhoon affected areas. Travel is also very restricted as airports are closed and bridges and roads affected. However relief will be needed in the long term as well as the immediate needs which the government and major relief organizations are seeking to meet.

We are sending two of our members to give us better information. One of them is from the major affected area.

CRBC/CCM Relief work however seeks to work with local churches, first those which are Reformed Baptist and then other evangelical churches. We send a small team  to work with the church and its members in distributing relief goods. The gospel is also preached by our team. The extent of the present needs seem to be vast and long term relief work may well be needed as many homes have been destroyed over a vast swath of the country in many provinces. Only slowly are needs being made known.

Be assured we shall be seeking to help in any way we can. Our particularly concern is also to help fellow believers who are in desperate need but also any to whom we can be of help and comfort.

Below is a statement of Pastor Brian Ellis about the recent typhoon that swept in central Philippines:

Dear Brethren

We are getting inquiries from many people about the Typhoon.

This was one of the most destructive ever according to news channels.

It did not affect Manila area but went through the Central Philippines.

Communications are down, no electricity in those areas due to poles down etc. Therefore we
have had no contact with churches or brethren in those areas. We are praying for them and
seeking to try to contact them but nothing as of the Lord’s Day morning (November 10, 2013).

We value your prayers as we seek to find out ways particularly to help our Christian brethren
and churches.

Thank you for your loving concern and prayers.

Brian Ellis

 

Since 2009, Cubao Reformed Baptist Church (CRBC) together with its benevolent arm, Christian Compassion Ministries, engages in relief operation work for those that were heavily affected by typhoon in the Philippines.  This was made possible by the donation of churches, friends and believers from abroad.  CRBC in turn reaches these affected places and distribute relief in accordance to the needs of the people which is usually food, portable water and medicine.  The Lord has been gracious by giving us churches who we can partner with in this endeavor to ensure that the relief items are given to those who are in real need but most especially to deliver the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and open the Word of God to tell people the will of God in this trying times.  As we once again look unto the Lord to help those who are badly affected, the church is planning to send relief to Tacloban, Leyte, where news reports says is 95% destroyed by the typhoon.  We do value your prayers for this work. Soli Deo Gloria!
