Mountain Mercy Project Update – Now Supporting Typhoon Haiyan Relief Efforts

December 4th, 2013 by Mel Leave a reply »

On Aug. 25, 2103 Pastor Jay Threadgill and his wife Linda celebrated the 25th Anniversary of their church in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  The church, Fishers of Men Ministries, also dedicated their new 34,000 sq. ft. building.  As you can see in the pictures, thousands of people came to praise God for giving them a place to worship, protected from the sun and severe weather.  The building replaced the badly damaged tent that they had used for the last 3 years.  Thank you for your generous support to make this all possible!

 Mountain Mercy Project (MMP) was started to provide emergency relief and long-term support to people in need and in devastated areas.  Now there is another area that needs our help.

On Nov. 8 & 9 of this year, the Philippines were hit with Super Typhoon Haiyan. It was the most powerful and devastating typhoon that ever hit the Philippines.  Over 5,000 people have lost their lives and millions more are without water, food, and shelter.

MMP is now expanding their efforts to support the Philippines.  We know a ministry there that we can trust called Christ Faith Fellowship which has been under the leadership of Bishop Edgar Bantigue and his wife, Dr. Edna Bantigue for over 2 decades.  They have started over 300 churches on the different islands in the Philippines.   Pastor Deborah Peters from Jay Wynn’s church, Rivers of Life in Sonora, CA, has been going to minister to these churches in the Philippines over the past 30 years.  Of course, the immediate needs are great right now, as these churches reach out to help the devastated people in their areas.

If you would like to donate toward the needs in the Philippines, you may send a check noted “Philippines” directly to MMP, or make a donation online and designate it for the Philippines.  These donations will be wired directly to Christ Faith Fellowship.  There is a great need in these areas, but if we all give a little, it will develop into a large river of mercy flowing from the mountain, and 100% of your donations will go directly to the people most in need right now.
