Typhoon Frank with the international codename Fengshen hit the Philippines on June 20. Panay Island, especially Iloilo city where the Headquarters of our partner the Convention of Philippines Baptist Churches, the Central Philippines University, and many of CPBC churches and related institutions are located, suffered the most devastation. The Convention has started a relief effort to provide bottle water, rice, canned food and box milk to the victims. If you want to give towards the relief, you may send a check payable to "One Great Hour of Sharing", and mark on the check "Philippines Typhoon Relief", and send the check to the World Relief Office, American Baptist Churches, USA, P.O. Box 851, Valley Forge, PA 19482-0851.
American Baptists wishing to support ongoing relief efforts can do so through their church's monthly report of mission support, designating contributions "OGHS-Philippines Typhoon." For online contributions, go to the give now option available at www.abc-oghs.org/give.
