As the news reports of typhoon Haiyan’s aftermath in the Philippines have begun to emerge, the damage and loss of life have been far more significant than many expected. I invite your prayers of comfort for those who have been impacted by this disaster, and your prayers for endurance and protection for those who will care for them in the days ahead.
It is one of the tragic ironies of this storm that the over-abundance of water that created the devastation is now followed by an acute lack of clean drinking water. The Anglican Relief and Development fund and Water Missions have partnered together to provide immediate assistance. I encourage you, your parish, and your diocese to support this work in the week ahead.
