-Disaster Assistance Mission-Super Typhoon Ruby(Hagupit)-Photo shows our Jeepney full of supplies. Most of the stores are selling out of supplies so today we purchased rice, sardines, instant noodles, biscuits, gas and extra car battery to use for a light in house and to recharge phone so Edwin can keep me updated. The food supplies will be repacked so we can hand it out after the storm passes. We bought all the rice that was left, 5 sacks(I think each sack is 110 pounds). Now hopefully we will be able to help those in need as soon as the storm passes.
If this storm continues on its current path there is going to be very much damage and many people will need help. We have volunteers already living there in many of the areas that might get damage so hopefully we will be ready as 1st responders.
We need your help to purchase more food and repair supplies when they are available after the storm passes. Donation information is at www.disasterassistancecoc.com
Please keep everyone in the path of this Super Typhoon in your prayers and the Disaster Assistance Mission that we might receive the funds to continue to help those in need.
Please share this post with all your friends. Thanks Mike
Our work so far in 2014
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 and had a good outreach program setup. 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. Also a few weeks ago 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.
We started helping in the Philippines after Super Typhoon Haiyan here is what we have been doing there. We helped purchase the satellite system for the Arapal Christian Camp, worked with Lilia’s Place on rebuilding homes at this time I think the number is just over 40 homes we have helped build. We also started working with Edwin and Blenda Inso, Edwin is a preacher in Eastern Samar, Philippines. There we have built a bible study center where Edwin is holding bible studies on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Purchased boat for traveling to bible studies and lively hood and a Jeepney(Van) for Edwin to use for travel to and from bible studies and picking up people who have no transportation. We have helped repair a few homes and helped with repairs on some church buildings. We also rebuilt Edwin’s house which was almost completely destroyed by the typhoon. At the present time we are still doing repairs in the area and doing much follow up and outreach. We have help start or restart 5 congregations and plans are in place to start #6 which will meet on Sundays at the newly built bible study center. Also in the next week or two Edwin will be adding 2 people that will be working full time preaching, bible studies and home outreach. We also have been in contact with another person who is already in the area and has his own funding hopefully he will be able to take over one of the congregations. Thru these efforts so far there has been 46 Baptisms in Eastern Samar and with the ones from our (Edwin’s) mission trips to Western Samar where his brother Roland preaches the total comes to 70.

Romans 12 New International Version (NIV) A Living Sacrifice
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Please pray for the thousands of people whose lives have been forever changed and for us as we show the love of the Lord to them by just providing a simple meal, helping hand or a home bible study.

-Disaster Assistance Mission-Typhoon Ruby-Our prayers have been answered I am talking to Edwin right now here was his first words---Hello brother Mike, thank God we are safe from this calamity, we are now in the area where there is a signal for internet, please we need help food and house materials. Many houses of our brethren been destroyed and some of them carried by the floods. Yes we are all safe, I don't know our brethren in Dolores. By the way our house was proven that it strong enough, can stand in the midst of the storm, 3 families were stayed in our house during the storm. No damage, not even one sheet of roofing. But the house of brother Michael Belino, the house of my in-laws and even the chapel were destroyed. I just talk3d to our brethren from Siha Congregation, they don't have any food to eat, so tomorrow I will deliver the food to them.
I can't tell you how good it made me feel to tell him that the 1st pickup load of food was only 1 hour away from being to him. -- Also here is the first words I got from Edwin's wife Blenda --thanks to God we are all safe bro. Mike,i cried so hard coz i thought it was the last night of my life..thank God that he give us again another life to serve Him,thanks also for your prayers and help bro. Mike.
From this first talk to Edwin sounds like most members of the congregation there lost their houses or had major damage. I am sure it is the same at the other congregations we were helping before the storm so we really NEED YOUR HELP donation information to your right.
We have contacts on the ground in Columbia, MS surveying the damage today and will be ready to start help with supplies and cleanup tomorrow. If you would like to help with this donation information is to the right of this page.
