Minutes ago I received news from our main pastor and overseer of the churches we work with in the Philippines.
For those that may not have heard, a major typhoon, by some reports the largest in recorded history hit the Philippines this past week. There are now reported thousands of deaths as a result. Until this time, there is still is no normal communication from much of the areas around Cebu.
Pastor Homer, the overseer of the churches we work with called me this morning. He just heard from our church in the town of Villaba. This is what he said, “Nothing was left all was gone carried by the strong wind even the drum set, guitars, roofs, lumber and all houses was destroyed, they are now hungry.” Pastor Homer also said, “Please pray for our people in Agutaya. There is no report and it is not yet reached by the media and the possibility of damage is also great because it is a small island and the big islands surrounding it was hit badly by the storm.”
We are making arrangements to send aid with Pastor Homer to Viiaba. Obviously, there is a great need. If you are able to contribute please send checks to our normal Reap account and designate for relief.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
Nels and Lorrie
