Barkman's in the Philippines are safe!
Yesterday the Barkman's posted an update on their BLOG. They write: "Thank you for the prayers and concern regarding the terrible Typhoon that swept through the the Philippines Friday morning. We, in Manila, have not been affected by the storm......as we read the news reports, we are seeing how terrible the devastation is in the central islands of the Philippines."
Church workers in Manila are currently assembling a team of personnel to head out to the worst hit areas to start an assessment and help organize disaster response. for more information please see the Barkman's BLOG. Donations for relief efforts can be made through Mennonite Central Committee. The Government of Canada is matching donations until December 9.
