“All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor.” –Gal 2:10.
The brothers and sisters on the HOPE worldwide and Benevolence Committee have continued meeting together on a monthly basis, besides having extensive individual phone calls, emails and fellowship meetings between members. In the past year we have seen God bless our work in a powerful way, with the help of your prayers. We have had many valuable suggestions from Committee members and others. We treasure two-way communication between the churches and HOPE worldwide, and we welcome the comments and suggestions of church leaders and all disciples.

On August 8, 2009, Typhoon Morakot struck Taiwan for three days. It was originally predicted to be only a middle scale typhoon, but it brought record breaking rainfall. It led to severe damage from flooding and landslides in southern Taiwan. In Pingtung County’s mountainous area in Southern Taiwan, the cumulative rainfall was 2,500 mm - close to the annual rainfall for the whole region. This is Taiwan's worst flood in 50 Years.
