Prayers for the Philippines

Many have asked about the status of our brothers and sisters in the Philippines after the recent devastation there. As of now, the Philippine Team has heard from only one family that resides on one of the highest mountains on the island of Bohol. The saints are struggling to provide basic life necessities for their families. At this time, most of the saints are still without power. We earnestly ask for your prayers for your brothers and sisters in Christ and all those affected by both disasters. Please take a minute and prayerfully watch this video, which provides a small view of what has been seen on trips to the Philippines and what the brothers and sisters there are experiencing now.
