Where Needed Most Fund and
Two Major Earthquakes/Fire in Chile
The April 2, 2014 8.2 magnitude earthquake in northern Chile was very devastating. Iquique was struck very hard. A 2nd quake hit, as well as hundreds of after shocks. Great damage occurred at numerous locations.
Relief is needed to help our brothers and sisters in Christ and to assist them to reach out to the unsaved who need the love of Christ and the gospel. Iván Alegría reports to us, "Would you help with offerings for the damage from this catastrophe? We will send the offering to our church-planter, Pastor Pablo Ramirez in Antofagasta. He is organizing all the logistics to buy goods, building materials, and electrical generators to transfer from Antofagasta to Iquique. Fundamental churches in Iquique (Missionary Baptist Church, Peniel Baptist Church, and Strong Tower Baptist Church (Alto Hospicio)) will help distribute the much needed supplies as well as share the gospel with the lost. Pastor Ramirez would appreciate whatever help possible to bring the first aid to the disaster zone. Thank you in advance for being part of this bridge of hope."
The weekend of April 12-13, severe fire burst out in the Valparaiso hills. Ivan is preparing a relief trip to help the Christians and the unsaved whose homes have been destroyed.
Gifts can be sent to IPM designated for "Alegria Disaster Relief."
