Super Typhoon Strikes the Philippines – Calvary Chapel Relief

Hi Friends… This is personal to me. For those of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting personally, I want to express that disaster relief is something my husband and I are very passionate about. My husband, Tim, is the man in the green shirt that is narrating part of this video. He has the privilege of overseeing Parakletos International, a Disaster Relief Org. of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.  Please read below and please watch the video.  Our world is so much bigger than what’s going on in the little sphere around us… Yet it’s small enough that when one has a need, we should be there to help the other out.

So, please take a few minutes to view this video that was just released about Calvary Chapel’s response to the typhoon. Then please pass it on. We are once again in a very strategic position and have been embraced by the local government. We, by God’s grace, have a huge opportunity to step into the lives of these victims and share the hope that helps us through each day. I know this is a time when most of us are thinking about family and the holidays, but please pray about how we might be able to make this Christmas something special for those families, who were also getting ready for this same holiday, but now have nothing…

Please keep those serving in your prayers.  Most importantly, keep those who are hurting and grieving and have lost not just all earthly possessions, but have also lost beloved family members, friends and pets.  It’s a tragic time indeed… And now they are faced with monumental trials ahead of trying to rebuild a life from the bottom up with nothing to start with.  The simplest things are no longer available.  Pray too how you can help.  Many blessings!
