PHILIPPINES
In a span of less than 30 days, the Philippines has been the scene for two major natural disasters. On October 15 the central islands of the Philippines suffered a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. Then, on November 9, typhoon Haiyan, the strongest storm ever on record in the Philippines, slammed through the same region. Both events destroyed church buildings and damaged the homes of many Advent Christians in the area. ACGC initially released $5,000 from the Emergency Relief fund to help with recovery from the earthquake. Another $5,000 is being sent to assist in further recovery efforts from the typhoon.

Report on Typhoon Yolanda from Oro Bible College (OBC) Director Nely Gamayon 

We thank the Lord we're safe from the super Typhoon Yolanda as Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental were warned ahead of time. Because of the tragedy in December 2011, the whole Province, as well as the places identified to be the areas hit by the storm, were prepared for evacuation a few days before the typhoon would take landfall. Fortunately for us in Cagayan de Oro (where OBC is located), we were better prepared this time. Unfortunately, in Tacloban, Leyte and the neighboring towns and cities, the people were not so prepared with the storm surge, so  the typhoon has left a higher toll in property devastation and loss of lives.

MYANMAR 
Sufficient funds were sent to Pastor Paul, to enable him to purchase mosquito nets for all the villagers to reduce the incidence of malaria, which has been causing such severe illness in the village. The smile on each of the faces of the last group of villagers to receive their nets tells the story of their gratitude. 

Pastor Paul was concerned at the lack of a means to transport those who are sick and injured from his village and the other 84 villages in the area to the one available hospital in the region.
