Jordan went with CRI director Sean Malone and a small team to do assessments after Typhoon Haiyan. They ended up in the hard hit city of Ormoc on the island of Leyte on the day the port opened bringing food and supplies for 1,000 families. They met a group of pastors at the port who were a part of a network of 33 churches that were in desperate need of food for thier families and congregations. The team was able to encourage the pastors as the food was distributed among them. They also were able to go and encourage three congregations that Sunday. At the end of the trip the baton was passed to a team of 20 from YWAM Kona who brought in twice the amount of supplies to the pastors and their communities in Ormoc. We have now been able to feed 15,000 people. Please continue to pray for the Philippines.
