Rushing Aid to the Philippines in the Aftermath of Catastrophic StormPosted
One of the strongest storms in recorded history slammed into the Philippines on Friday, November 8, 2013. Typhoon Haiyan has displaced nearly half a million people and killed or injured tens of thousands more. Samaritan's Purse and Compassion International are two great ways to offer your assistance to the people of the Phillipines.
Samaritan's Purse will be distributing food, water, medicine, blankets, and other essential items in the central Philippines. The area includes Bohol, where a 7.2 magnitude earthquake left thousands homeless in October. We will work alongside Christians in the Philippines who have often partnered with us to share the love of Jesus with people in need. Please pray for people who have lost everything because of the storm, and our teams as we respond.
Compassion International is closely monitoring the situation to assess damage to the children we serve in the Philippines. We will update this page frequently with accurate information as it is received. At this time please keep the children and families of the Philippines in your prayers.
If you are a sponsor know that we are working closely with the Philippines office to assess the damage. Communication is difficult at this time due to the extent of damage but we will update you on your sponsored child's situation as soon as possible.
How Does Compassion Help Children in Crisis?
The Disaster and Relief Stability Fund was set-up by Compassion to quickly provide aid to families of Compassion assisted children so they can survive a disaster and get back on their feet. When you give to this fund, you help Compassion provide the relief, recovery, and rehabilitation that is vital for restoring families after a disaster. Your gift makes possible interventions such as:
- emergency food and water
- temporary shelters
- personal items
- cooking utensils
- trauma counseling and spiritual support
- replacing clothing, school supplies and household items
- restoring supplies a family needs for earning income
- providing continued counseling and support as needed
You Can Win A Chance To Play Corn Hole With Tobymac!
Time is running short, but you can still win a chance to play Corn Hole with Tobymac when he and the Hits Deep Tour hit Southwest Florida on November 14th! All this fall we're giving you the chance to participate in our Corn Hole Tournamnet and the grand prize winner will play Toby before the game, score tickets to the show for their family and get a chance to meet the artists backstage, including Mandisa, Colton Dixon, Brandon Heath, Jamie Grace and Chris August.
Here's HOW to win:
Come out to wherever the WAY-FM Roadshow is going to be this week and do your best. The rules go like this: Every person gets a chance to throw 4 "corn bags" from 20' away from our regulation sized cornhole board. Every bag that lands FULLY on the face of the board scores 1 point, every one completely through the hole scores 3. If you score in your first 4 throws you get to throw 4 more. If ALL 8 bags score, you continue scoring until you miss. The player with the highest total score before November 14th wins the grand prize! ALL DECISION OF THE JUDGES ARE FINAL.
THIS IS ALL THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSOR:
