Brothers and sisters, I received this appeal for the typhoon that ripped across the Philippine Islands last week. As announced last Lord’s day, Central will be taking up a special Week of Compassion offering that will greatly aid our Western Pacific brothers and sisters. I am including the WOC appeal email so you can see what has been done and what is yet to be done. Central will play a small, but significant role in this relief effort. Jesus said, “Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.” This is our chance to step up as we have often done.
