COGIC CHARITIES DISASTER RELIEF FUND IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE MIDWEST AND PHILIPPINES
CNN reports that Philippines Super Typhoon Haiyan affected 4.3 million people in 36 provinces, displacing hundreds of thousands.
The stories that are emerging from the shattered Philippine region are unimaginable, with rushing water and wind tearing children away from their parents' arms. Typhoon Haiyan appears to be the deadliest natural disaster on record.
Subsequently, here in the U.S., as of Wednesday evening, November 20, 2013, The Weather Channel stated that more than 55 tornados were confirmed across nine states Sunday. From all estimates, the storm may have produced the most powerful November tornado on record in Illinois, outside of St. Louis (and possibly elsewhere), and may be one of the four most intense Great Lakes storms of the past five decades.
COGIC Charities, the benevolent arm of the Church of God in Christ, is providing assistance to the victims of the Philippine typhoon, as well as to victims of the Midwest storms, by distributing food, water, clothing and shelter to the numerous affected.
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. has communicated with Philippine Jurisdictional Bishop Avel B. Forto, Sr. who asked that the saints continue to pray for the people of the Philippines.
