-Disaster Assistance Mission-Update from Lilia's Place
The team has completed 19 of your first set of 20 homes and has started construction on number 20. Attached is a picture of one of the 7 completed houses last week. We were unable to visit the site of the other 6 homes due to heavy rains and flooding. Only motorcycles were able to get up the mountain where they were built. We will be going back next week to visit and will get pictures of those six homes. There are still more homes that need to be built on that list that we sent you earlier. If you would like to sponsor more, it certainly would be a blessing. This week the team is completing your house number 20 and then rebuilding the home economics building for the school we have adopted. The building was completely destroyed and it is used to teach many livelihood skills to the children. We ask for your prayers as rainy season begins. There are many families that are still without shelter and this weather could make it difficult to get them back into a home quickly.
Thanks so much for all you have done to help rebuild and restore lives after Typhoon Haiyan. You have been a beacon of hope to many families. Words aren't enough to express the gratitude for the love you have shown!
Attached to the back of the first house is the makeshift temporary shelter that the family had been living in for the last six months. It is typical of what many families are living in as they wait for their homes to be built.
Thanks to everyone who sent prayers and funds to the Disaster Assistance Mission to help with this work. If you would like to help us continue donation information is on our website www.disasterassistancecoc.com
7/10 -Disaster Assistance Mission-Update from Edwin-(photo)Edwin and Roldan Inso evangelist/preacher of the church of Christ in Calbayog City. A fire burned 40 houses yesterday. Some of the families were members of the Church of Christ there. I saw personally how they felt of losing their houses and including their things. They are without clothes, foods, kitchen wares. Victims are now temporarily at the public school building. Please if you could help please do. I am now at the spot taking some photos and I made a talked to some people who are now suffering for food.

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
