In light of the recent earthquake and Typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda, we are concentrating some effort for relief on Bohol. Our lead pastor and director of Theodoulos Ministries, our ministry on Mindanao Island, which suffered from severe floods in 2011 in Cagayan De Oro and Typhoon Pablo, this year near our home base in Pantukan, has made contact with a pastor on Bohol.
We are currently working out the logistics on how to proceed and what would be the best use of any funds we can raise so Ernie can go to Bohol and be engaged in person with the effort to help.
We appreciate your prayers and if you can help in some way you may send a donation via Paypal at [email protected] or a check to New Covenant Baptist Fellowship and mail it to me:

This morning I was teaching a business seminar. Before class, I was in a conversation with an employee in the operations office whom I had never met before except to say hello to when signing in. After our talk, Don gave me $20.00 for our relief effort. Thank you Don.
Also thank you to Donna and Peter for your contribution.
I will keep this blog updated as we move forward.
We are collecting funds and goods on the ground in Mindanao. Our five churches there are very simple churches with mostly sustenance farmers and low income earners. They are doing what they can to raise funds and goods as well.
We will also send funds from our Mindanao account. As many of you know we are a small church that the Lord has blessed with a big work in doing pastoral training conferences, outreach, soon to be free public school education, and we have been used by Christian Aid Mission as on the ground relief workers when they have raised funds for disaster relief on Mindanao for the flood and Typhoon Pablo, where we are still having outreach in Compostela Valley and New Bataan.
