In the Wake of Haiyan: How You Can Help

In lieu of my usual Tuesday(ish) post, below are several links to a variety of resources that you can contact if you feel so moved to offer concrete aid to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.  Regardless of whatever else you can offer right now, please offer your earnest and most sincere prayers on behalf of both victims (and their families) and relief workers alike.

But...I do hope you can offer something in the way of material assistance, though--as Scripture writes: "Imagine a brother or sister who is naked and never has enough food to eat.  What if one of you said, "Go in peace!  Stay warm!  Have a nice meal!"?  What good is it if you don't actually give them what their body needs?" (James 2:15-16, Common English Bible)

Please consider giving, even a little bit, towards the needs that most urgent right now.  Millions of givers, even if you only can offer a few clams like me, can make a big difference.

Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers.

Yours in Christ,
