UPDATE (late November): We’re visiting the Boracay mission next month, so we’ll see first-hand how they’re progressing in the rebuilding of their mission house and school.
Another Recommendation: Mission work-groups this Winter break to rebuild homes Even the hundreds of pictures of the destruction wrought by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) do not do justice to the unimaginable suffering and grief of the people affected.
Pasig Covenant Reformed Church and Trinity Covenant Reformed Church (Imus) are sending cash to a mission working with the Atis in Boracay. Below are a few of the long-term mission work in the typhoon-ravaged areas that I’ve learned about from others:
On the Rock Ministries, Boracay
Dan and Tori Beaver (Facebook). Serving the Ati people and tourists. Church, school, Bible school.
The Hope Foundation, Inc., Tacloban City, Leyte
Larry & Bobby Womack (Facebook). Serving the poor. Bible school/institute
Paul & Margie Varburg (Facebook), Tacloban City
Church and Christian school Dennis & Marilou Drake, Bohol
International Deaf Education Association. They have a website for Bohol Earthquake Relief.
Over the long-term, you can also send funds to my mission organization (send me a note saying you want your gift to go to Typhoon Haiyan Relief):
Mission: East Asian National Support: P. O. Box 8434 Bartlett, IL 60103 [memo: R1612 (FEURM)]
If you’re in the Philippines, and want to send funds directly to these places, please send me a message in the comment box below.
