Philippines Destruction in the Philippines By David Harris “Typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was an exceptionally powerful tropical cyclone that devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, in early November 2013. It is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 6,183 people in that country alone. Haiyan is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed.” (Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Typhoon_Haiyan) At the World Missions Center in Harrison, Tennessee, our hearts were united in prayer for our missionaries and ministry friends who were in harm's way.

Through their supporting churches the Lord helped the Browns to start their ministry and now there are 90 churches actively involved in the harvest—all with national leadership. These churches are now sending out scores of missionaries! I am convinced that when we give to missions, we may never get to see all that God is doing
