How to give to help the Crafts

Because we were renting and there was no insurance, we are obligated to offer to repair the damage ourselves to avoid a lawsuit and other fines. Recently, my Brother Roy, offered to loan us the money to purchase the property for church property here. The former rental home is being built to accomodate our Sawang Dandin Baptist Church center (we rent another property now).

We did not have funds of our own for this, but a number of individuals and churches have offered to help. We are continuing to work in our ministry in spite of the difficulties.

For those who desire to give a gift through our mission for us, ABWE mission has set up a special account for to raise funds needed for the project of “House Fire Recovery”:
