In the early hours of the morning on November 8th, super typhoon Yoland, or better known internationally as Haiyan, made landfall on the Philippine Islands.
This storm left behind a massive trail of death and distruction in the Phillipines. Aid to help the people that have survived this terrible storm is coming from several well known sources that Victory Compassion Ministries supports on a monthly basis. Convoy of Hope, one of the Assemblies of God organization that we support monthly through Victory Compassion Ministries, was on the ground and helping with the immediate needs such as providing food.
Pastor Thomas and our other campus pastors shared Sunday about the great need in the Philippines. People just like you and me, lost their homes, possessions, and for many their lives in this devistating storm. We cannot all GO and be on the ground in the Philippines passing out meals and providing comfort in this time of crisis. But, we can give so that through ministries like Convoy of Hope and many others we will see real impact be brought to families that need it most.
An interesting statistic about the Philippines is that out of the over 83 million residents, 91% are Christian. So, this disaster not only has effected the non-believer, but many of our own brothers and sisters in Christ as well. If you want to be a part of joining to help with this recent disaster in the Philippines, please consider giving through Victory Compassion Ministries to help support the organizations that are on the ground serving the people in the Philippines.
