Alabama Baptists send emergency funds to the Philippinescomment (0)

November 18, 2013

In the wake of one of the most powerful typhoons in recorded history, the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions has forwarded disaster relief emergency funds to assist with relief efforts in the Philippines. As additional donations are received from churches, 100 percent of the proceeds will be used to help survivors of the crisis with food, shelter and other emergency needs and to assist International Misison Board missionaries and disaster relief personnel providing assistance in the Philippines.

“As with every Level 3 crisis, Alabama stands ready to cooperate with all our state conventions as Southern Baptists respond in a coordinated fashion,” said Mel Johnson, state disaster relief strategist.  “Our volunteers are ready to respond. Until we are called upon, let me encourage everyone to pray and offer financial support.”

Johnson also noted that in an international crisis, each state is assigned a month of the year in which they take the lead for initial response in deploying volunteers. Alabama’s assigned month is March, therefore Alabama disaster relief volunteers will wait to respond until called out.

To donate to the relief effort, please click here. Or send your check payable to: State Board of Missions, P.O. Box 11870, Montgomery AL 36111-0870, For: Philippines Typhoon Relief.
