We have two teams consisting of two men in each basically doing a survey but also hopefully taking a truck load of relief goods into the areas most affected by the typhoon. They leave today or tomorrow. Two are going to the island of Leyte and hoping to contact churches in the central part of the island and the west coast. The two men going there are from that area. That is where the City of Tacloban is located.
The second group is going to the island of Samar where many small towns and villages are still cut off and no news. The man leading that group is from that place as well. Again they hope to be able to take a truck of relief goods in there. This is basically a survey team which will be followed up by a larger group of our members very soon.
There are also other islands in need of help and we hope to contact churches in some of the other badly hit areas. We seek to work through the local evangelical churches in those areas in the distribution of relief goods also medicines as well as seeking to
proclaim the hope of the gospel. However this is going to be long term relief work as millions are without homes.
Relief Team from the USA
We were also contacted by Grace Community Church in San Antonio Texas (a Reformed Baptist Church in Texas) to discuss the possibility of then sending a team to help with the relief efforts.
Please continue to pray for wisdom as we desire to elevate men in the misery of this tragedy and also to call them into the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
