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
Disaster Assistance Mission
These photos were taken minutes before we started our discipleship class last night, I invited Sister Fe to attend or join the bible class every Tuesday and Friday.
And I asked her of what she really needs for her house to be completed. She said to me that WHATEVER WE CAN HELP for the flooring and wall to be fixed. Then I noticed that there was tears in her eyes, I am sure that was a tears of joy that her house will be repaired soon.
Dear brethren, if you want to be part of this effort and for our works here in Eastern SAMAR Philippines, please do, and send your donations to Disaster Assistance Mission CoC through brother Mike Baumgartner.
Togetherness we can make things possible.
Great news for the day, Jomell Recoy 22 year old. Surrendered his life to Christ, and he obeyed the death burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus through Baptism.
Jomell is a college student of the University of Eastern SAMAR (ESSU) he is now 3rd year college taking his course of Electrical Engineering. He is also one of the students of our discipleship class in our bible study center. He was involved in doing the work for Sister Fe's house yesterday. Another day will be scheduled to finish the work.
