Operation Ahon: Joining Relief Efforts in the Philippines
The lives lost and the property damage done by Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines are hard to process on any level—mentally, emotionally, theologically. It’s even hard to know how to pray.
Despite our long-distance struggle, we CAN get involved in relief efforts that the church in the Philippines is leading. Starting with last week’s issue, ePistle’s “Action Alert” has provided a way we can give through MEANS USA, which channels our donations to “Operation: Ahon” coordinated by the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship-Philippines. I’m sure that the larger relief organizations are providing an invaluable service, but so are the smaller efforts that work more personally and directly with affected groups.
To keep up with “Operation:Ahon, “like” IVCF-Phil on Facebook, where reports and pictures are posted regularly.
