Dear Fellow-Pastor,

I literally shook with emotion as Anna and I paused again to pray yesterday concerning the massive disaster that has impacted Asia. Tears with intercession are surely appropriate and powerful… but informed, compassionate action is needed, now.

In a Foursquare News Service (FNS) report to follow shortly, you will find (1) an insightful report, and (2) a call to action. YOU AND I ARE BEING CALLED TO MOBILIZE AS PART OF THE GREATEST-EVER SINGLE GLOBAL RESPONSE TO CRISIS IN THE HISTORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL FOURSQUARE CHURCH.

As the shattered and needy, bereaved and broken in one area of the world cry out, let all the rest of us around the world rise in strength and compassion.

With more than 77,000 reported dead today–and an anticipated 100,000 likely–THE LIVING NEED OUR LOVING ACTION!

Thank you for leading your congregation in vital, practical and dynamic response.

(1934-2023) was the former president of The Foursquare Church and founding pastor of The Church On The Way.
