A Filipino pastor wrote:  “I have confirmed that five churches of ours have been totally destroyed with their pastors now temporarily in the evacuation center. They are asking for financial help both for their house[s] and church buildings. I am still expecting more news from our churches in different
islands.”

“Fellow pastors and bible students have returned to find their homes reduced to rubble and their loved ones missing. [the Filippino pastor] ends with a cry for help: “What shall I do? Can you help me carry this burden?”

 

 

As our Savior reminded us: “For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in; I was naked, and you clothed me …. Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me” (Matthew 25:25-40).
