Homeless Not Hopeless

“I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from Yahweh,who made heaven and earth.

As we see the destruction from Typhoon Yolanda, it is clear just how impacting this storm was to so many. However, we have been continually blessed by the hope we see in the people of Leyte. For the past two days, James and I toured Yolanda’s ground zero and met with locals. We saw vast devastation, yet amidst the damage, we saw smiles. Over and over, we are thanked for being here to serve the people of the Philippines. That ‘thank you’ extends to everyone in our church Body. We are ambassadors of the love our church has for those who have been so hurt and lost so much to this storm. James and I are humbled daily to serve our Lord in this manner and pray for continued wisdom and guidance as we both minister and are ministered to.

Today, we move north to the island of Samar. We will be meeting up with several Calvary Chapel pastor who have been serving in the region for many years. There are roughly 7 Calvary Chapels and a CC Bible College on that island. Samar was also severely damaged by Yolanda. Please keep these ministries in prayer and they all have lost much, but, are attempting to serve those in their Body who are in great need.

Bless you and thank you for praying for us and those we’re here to serve.

In Christ,
Steve
