Most of you are aware of the devastation in the Philippines caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan last week. Our missionary team, Global Surge, is engaging in a relief effort for victims of the typhoon.

We are planning to focus on Bantayan Island where we have ministry partners. Bantayan Island has a population of 129,154. There were 600 people taking shelter in an evacuation center in Bantayan as the storm hit. During the storm the roof collapsed killing nearly everyone in the center. This is just one example of the devastation, as the entire island is in ruins. Families, businesses, and churches have all been affected by this tragedy.

Our goal is to give $25,000 for immediate relief efforts on this island. We will provide clean water, food, temporary shelter, and other needs initially.

Next, we want to give $50,000 to help our partner church on Bantayan Island rebuild and continue to provide relief to the community. Doing this will meet physical AND spiritual needs in the area.

Please consider donating and helping the people of the Philippines.

100% of the funds will go to relief efforts. All donations are tax-deductible.
