Philippines Typhoon Relief through BMAA Missions
By JOHN DAVID SMITH
BMAA Missions Executive Director
In 2 Corinthians 9, Paul is encouraging the believers to participate in the offering to help meet the physical needs of the Christians in Jerusalem. His appeal had three elements: the gift would be proof of genuine faith in the Corinthians, their obedience would be proof of their faith to the Jerusalem believers, and it would be an example of selfless giving much like God did through Christ.
BMA Missions in Little Rock, AR will serve as a relief center for our Filipino brothers and sisters in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. This is an excellent way for you or your church to guarantee that your offerings will be utilized 100% for the purpose you indicate. The BMA Missions office staff gets no extra compensation for transferring the funds, and BMAA missionaries get no payment for administering the funds. This allows ALL of the funds to be administered in the relief effort.
In addition to the opportunity in the Philippines, we are continuing to promote the need in the Middle East. Our leaders in Lebanon and Jordan are facing an urgent situation with the millions of Syrian refugees. We encourage you to give to this effort also.
Please indicate on your offering where you want your funds directed. If you have no preference, we will administer those funds in the area of need. You may send your relief offerings to:
P.O. Box 30910
Little Rock, AR 72260
