American Baptist Churches Lift Typhoon Victims in Prayer
Please keep the people of the Philippines and other affected areas in your prayers, after the powerful Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philipines Friday. Pray for all those who have been drastically affected, family and friends of the deceased, and also responders who will be working in the coming days to reach more remote areas in the Philippines that have sustained major damage.
According to news outlets, the official death toll in the Philippines on Monday stood at 255, although authorities expect that number to increase dramatically, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
Your gifts designated to “OGHS Philippines Relief” will help affected areas at this time. To make a donation, visit www.abc-usa.org and click “Give Online” at the top right of the page. In the “Comments” section, type “OGHS Philippines Relief.”
