This weekend we will take up a special second collection for disaster relief to help the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 7, 2013. It is estimated there have been 10,000 fatalities and more than half a million people displaced as a result of this catastrophe. Many people are assumed to be staying in open areas without shelter. These numbers are expected to increase as more information becomes available.
We continue to pray for all the victims and their families.
