The Adventist Church in the Philippines is vibrant and growing. There are over 800,000 members in the three Philippine unions—approximately 300,000 in the North Union, 160,000 in the Central Union, and 350,000 in the South Union.
When Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippine islands on Friday November 8 tens of thousands of our Adventist brothers and sisters were severely affected. While we do not have detailed figures at this time we do know that large numbers have lost their simple homes, their food supplies, and even their cooking and eating utensils. Some escaped with only the clothes on their backs. Some did not escape at all.
ADRA and other aid agencies are working hard to provide shelter, food, water and other needed commodities to the public at large. If you would like to support their efforts you can go to ADRA.org to contribute.
However, If you would like to show solidarity with your Adventist family, if you would like to say to your brothers and sisters in the Philippines, ''we feel your pain, our prayers are with you, and we want to help in your hour of need," we invite you to click on the donate button above and give as generously as you can. 100% of the funds received will go to provide assistance to our Adventist members in the Philippines.
Also please pass this on--post it on your Facebook page, tweet it, email it to friends and family, become a fundraiser by clicking on “become a fundraiser” Thank you for your support, and God bless.
