Dear Praying Friends,
Please, forward this email to at least 3 other people or churches. We need your help.
I have just received word from David Harris, Field Director for Far East-BIMI. He has sent me communication this morning concerning the situation BIMI faces in the Philippines.
David was our lead missionary for the Japan earthquake and Tsunami. He is a superb individual and a great asset to the mission force of BIMI. He has agreed to help us coordinate work with BIMI missionaries as he did in Japan.
Please read the information below. Please speak to your church or pastor about an offering, this would be wonderful. We seek to help these churches and the un-churched thousands of the Philippines.
David writes the following:
"We have only heard from two of our nine missionaries who we know were affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. The storm just passed through (as of Saturday morning EST), and most of our men probably have no electricity or ability to communicate. We did hear that one of our ministries has roof damage to two of their church buildings. We know that relief will be needed as soon as possible. Any help that your organization can provide by way of relief funds would be greatly appreciated. We have a dozen families in the Philippines that will be working to help bring relief to those people. Thank you for your consideration."
As you can see, communication is very sparse at this time. We have written emails to everyone on which we have information. We have attempted to call by phone as many of the people as possible.
This was a huge storm and possibly one of the strongest in history.

God bless all who try to help us with the suffering of others and the salvation of their souls.
