Be Prepared for Disasters
In our effort to mobilize churches to help their communities to be strong and stay safe in the face of disasters, we encourage all households of faith to urge all households in your communities to prepare for disasters. See the FEMA Emergency Supply List. To get a kit, make a plan, and stay informed see Ready America. Tell you family and friends!

Supporting Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines
The Lott Carey network is mobilizing to support survivors of typhoon Haiyan that has devastated the Philippines. The typhoon hit the country on Friday, 8 November 2013, with winds of 147 mph that gusted to 170 mph. Nearly 10 million people were affected by Haiyan, one of the most powerful typhoons to hit land and may become the deadliest natural disaster to impact the Philippines.
We are communicating with colleagues in the Philippines to express support and to learn how our resources can best be targeted for people in need. Contributions can be made online or by check designated for “Philippines”.
Prayer for the Philippines.
