Philippine Typhoon - Post 21

Philippines Typhoon
Tuesday December 10, 2013
Dear Friends,
Please read this entire email.  God is continuing to bless the work.
Edna Cadavos wrote the following on Tuesday morning December 10 in the Philippines.
"It's a beautiful morning in the Philippines, please continue to pray for Pastor Dan Cadavos as he preaches and organizes the medical clinics today in Carles, Iloilo, at the tip of the NE peninsula of Panay Island. Pray also for Doctors Barber and Jones serving this week under ORH and our men from Mt. Calvary Baptist Mlybly continuing with the clearing and construction ministry.  Dr Paul Chu has a group as well working with Pastor Dan; God is SO blessing their unity and fellowship in this relief ministry! Thanks to all who are helping in this effort.  A Seventh Day Adventist man accepted Christ just a few minutes ago. (Dan just texted me - Edna)"

They had a great day yesterday, Monday December 9, with 70 some souls saved in the morning and another 20 or more in the afternoon.  He (Dan) says he really likes those doctors ORH sent, and they are a real blessing...they are looking today for a few medications that were not procured, but making due with what is available...they were impressed in what our school was able to collect."

The doctors also wrote ORH yesterday.  They said the clinic on Monday was in support of a new church plant.  Dan Jones, PA, said that he was having the time of his life.  Dr. Barber wrote that they wanted him to do a basketball clinic on Saturday.  He said that basketball was huge there.
This just came in from Edna Cadavos.  She wrote this about 11:30 PM on Tuesday December 10.
"I need to get to bed, but had to write a quick email before I do as it truly has been a very good day in northern Panay.

I am going to try to piece together a few of Dan's text messages today for you Bro Jan, Jared and folks at Open Door.

Dan prepared a special meal for their team (a total of 15 men) tonight.  They had been eating basically just fish for over a week, so he went to the market and made his own special "grilled pork" recipe which everyone always enjoys.  He said they devoured it and they would all sleep well tonight.  They have comfortable sleeping quarters as Dan wants them to be well rested for the hard, long days under the HOT sun.  The weather is usually warm for December.

They saw aprox 200 patients today.  Adults that were saved were 47 and over 180 children made "professions of faith" as well.  50-100 families benefited from various clean-up and construction efforts today.  The Lord spared the life of a child during the felling of one of the trees...altho' they had requested again and again for the children to be clear of the area, one had "hidden" and the tree they were working on did not fall in the place they were aiming for and when it fell the child was near enough to be thrown a bit by the impact of it hitting the ground.  Praise God it did not land on the child and he was ok.  Dan requested the teachers of the nearby school to please be extra diligent to keep all the children far from the area the chainsaws were working. 

Before their departure from that area one teacher had tears falling down her cheeks as the gospel was presented and very willingly accepted Christ as her Savior.  It was a good day.

10-15 families were given tarps to use to sleep under, and planning on giving out more tomorrow.  Many people are still sleeping under the stars with make-shift shelters.  Dan is also pricing the fishing boats and hopes to get some of those ordered and assigned to the faithful ones. 

The some additional funds from ORH were delayed a bit, but we had a generous unexpected gift from Filipino brethren in Chicago, who for the most part attend one of our supporting churches and today another generous gift from Filipinos and Harvest Ministries in Guam.  The Lord has provided and sustained His work, we praise Him!

This is an exciting work, God is working through hearts here and in the USA and Guam...its just amazing to be involved in this and we count it a privilege being used.

Thank you all for your prayers and being channels of blessing.  See you on facebook and I will do my best to update you more:

Prayer requests:
1. God's wisdom and direction in the use of all the funds.
2. Pedie Alinob from our church, chainsaw operator having some high blood pressure-the doctors are advising there, and medicating him, he is KEY to the construction operations.
3. The preaching of the Word and clear understanding as Dan is doing most of the preaching.
4. The Lord not only working in the hearts of the unsaved, but for spiritual growth and encouragement to all the storm survivors and in the hearts of the team themselves.
God bless you all,  Edna"
