Breaking update: American Bible Society received news from the General Secretary of the Philippine Bible Society Dr. Nora Lucero who is on the ground in the Philippines. She writes:   

 “We are a devastated and deeply wounded people. We have not yet recovered from the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in October, which killed hundreds of people, and now Typhoon Haiyan has sent tsunami-like waves and howling winds that have flattened entire cities. 

 “We appeal for help from our sister Bible Societies around the world. We hope to be able to make available 250,000 copies of the book, ‘God is our Shelter,’ which is a collection of Bible passages and reflections about how God can help us in times of trouble. We also want to provide 20,000 Bibles and 20,000 Bible comics for children and young people. We want to remind our suffering people of these words and the hope in them.” 

 You can help American Bible Society support the work of the Philippine Bible Society by donating now.

Join us in praying for the victims of the typhoon using these words from Scripture.   

Psalm 130:5, 6 (GNT)   

 I wait eagerly for the Lord's help, 

 and in his word I trust. 

I wait for the Lord

more eagerly than sentries wait for the dawn— 

than sentries wait for the dawn.
