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.
Below is our recap report for 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.
