To Our Loyal Supporters
I just wanted to take this time to thank you for your continued support and update you on what we have been doing.
It has been a different year so far this 2014. There have been lots of smaller storms but nothing like 2013 when we had major ones back to back from early spring to late fall. Below is what we have been involved with this year.
On 4/28 I left Indiana for Mayflower AR to help with the tornado damage. Before I arrived there floods hit in the Florida Panhandle. I arrived at the Mayflower Church and got things setup and left some of our equipment and 5 of our experienced volunteers that has helped us many times stayed there in Mayflower while I headed to Pensacola. We setup at the Gateway Church of Christ and also worked with Gulf Breeze CoC. In just 3 weeks combined at both locations we served over 16,000 meals handed out many loads of supplies and help with cleanup and mucking of houses. When we finished in Pensacola/Gulf Breeze area, I took the Mobile Headquarters back to our home base at the Florida Bible Camp. Then headed back to Indiana to pickup our supply trailer and take it back to the camp stopping along the way in Blowing Green, KY to pick up the supplies and equipment that was used in Arkansas. This 4 – 5 week span I drove over 3,000 miles taking care of these two storms. Last week there was flooding here in Indiana. I drove to Hartford City to survey the damage and we are helping one family with cleanup supplies and repairs.
In 2013 because there wasn’t a major hurricane for us to work, I took up a special collection to help out in the Philippines after the Typhoon. This was the first time we have help on a foreign mission. To this day we still have some of those funds remaining and continue to help. We have paid for over 50 houses to be rebuilt, rebuilt Edwin’s house, built a bible study center, purchased a Jeepney and a boat for mission work there, bought fans, chairs, bibles and other supplies for the bible study center. Edwin Inso the missionary we help, conducts two bible studies there each week and preaches at two or three churches each Sunday. The attendance is now up to 30-40 per class mostly college age. Most days I talk to Edwin (thru facebook) at least two times. We send him funds to do the work as needed (weekly) and require him to give daily updates and photos which I post on facebook so everyone can see how their donations are being used. As most of you know at anytime you can go to our website and link to facebook to view updates and photos of all our work.
Thanks again for your faithful support

10/30 Wonderful news form Edwin In the Philippines. Two days ago Edwin, his wife Blenda and 10 of our bible study students left Borongan, Eastern Samar on a 6 hour mission trip drive to Calbayog where Edwin's brother Roldan preaches for a two day bible study Seminar. After the two days of bible studies and the 12 baptisms as I write this we have purchased some rice and fish for their dinner and after the people want another bible study. I and the Disaster Assistance Mission are so blessed to be able to be apart of this great work being done here in Samar, it is so wonderful to see people so willing and open to studying the Lord's word. -- If you would like to help us continue this work, donation information is at www.disasterassistancecoc.com Thanks so much to everyone who's donations has made this possible. -- Next is Edwin's update.
Praises be to God, after the 2 days of bible seminar here in the village of Tinambacan Calbayog city Western Samar resulted with 12 baptisms, this afternoon we had two groups of baptism, first group of baptism we have 10 persons, then in a just a few minutes another 2 souls accepted Christ in baptism.
Truly God is now focusing the souls in this island of Samar by showing this great event of harvest. I believe that God will continue opening the hearts of the people here in Samar. Thank you so much for all your prayers for our works here, if you want to be part of the harvest, please do it and God will give you also a reward the same as we have.
Thanks to Disaster assistance Mission through brother Mike Baumgartner in providing the funds for our mission trip, and I want to give thanks also to brother Eusebio Tanicala for his additional funds for the food for our mission team.
