29/8/05 – UN Report – Hurricane Katrina
Katrina, a category four hurricane slammed into the southern state of Louisiana early Monday morning with winds at around 225 kph. The storm is continuing to weaken as it moves over land, but is still battering the region with winds of more than 160kph. According the U.S. National Hurricane Centre, hurricane force winds are expected to spread as far as 200km inland along the storms path, and rainfall is expected to total between 10cm – 25cm. Significant damage and flooding is expected to result from storm surges, which could reach up to 6m above normal tide levels. This is of particular concern in low lying costal areas. The city of New Orleans is especially vulnerable as 70 percent of the city lies below sea level. According to local authorities, parts of city’s system of levees and pumps have failed, leaving portions of the city under 1.5m to 1.8m of water. In the state of Mississippi, there are reports of up to 3m of water in some areas and extensive structural damage to buildings. It is expected that police and emergency workers will be able to enter the area late Monday afternoon to rescue stranded residents and assess damages.

8/9/05 – “Katrina Crisis” – Testimony
“You would not believe what it’s like to talk to Pastors who’s homes and communities have been completely destroyed… and all they can talk about is how on Day 2 our trucks came rumbling into town with massive supplies, food and help. In some cases – most of the ones I spoke with – they are just outside of the hardest hit areas… and so for the most part they just turned the truck drivers away and sent them further down the road to the Churches in the hardest hit areas. To put this in perspective… these are Pastors who to this day have no electricity, no mail, no help, their homes have trees falled right through them… not able to yet have church services… yet they consider themselves so well off they are refusing the trucks and sending them further in. All these guys can do is thank us for how quick and how strong the response was. Quite a different story huh… from what we hear on the news about the response.” Pastor Don Sparman, FTH Canada Working from the South Bend Warehouse
8/9/05 – “Katrina Crisis” – Distribution Update
LeSEA Broadcasting station (WHNO TV-20) located in the heart of New Orleans was originally planned as the distribution point for food supplies, but was found too damaged to be used.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army having been using schools and city halls as shelters, but now they’re having to move people out since the facilities are needed for their intended purpose. This means that churches will become the main source of shelters for displaced people.

18/10/05 – Pakistan Earthquake Relief – Assessment
Feed The Hungry is working with the Christian Evangelical Fellowship of Pakistan to rush emergency food rations and blankets into the earthquake disaster zone. Funds have already been transferred to purchase critical items nearby so we can get them into the hands of local churches to distribute to the needy. A Feed The Hungry staff director has arrived in Islamabad to coordinate and oversee our relief efforts.
Teams have been dispatched to Muzaffarabad and are going out to several devastated village communities from there. One team reported that all the buildings and homes were destroyed in the city. They walked through the streets and saw dead bodies everywhere. They saw a school where 600 children were trapped and only 200 children were rescued. One hospital was completely destroyed, the staff and patients all died.
Because of the continuing rains the roads are damaged and dangerous. The relief work is very slow. People are without food and shelter. It is urgent that we continue to send funds quickly to purchase more food and critical supplies. Trans-oceanic shipping containers of relief supplies will take several weeks to arrive in Pakistan but your donation can immediately be put to work purchasing goods in Pakistan to provide immediate relief to the earthquake victims.
18/10/05 – “Hurricane Katrina” – Update
As recovery efforts continue in the gulf, the needs of victims are changing as time passes by. FTH is starting to send food items that need to be cooked, instead of ready to eat, as families in the gulf begin moving back into their homes. Robert Boucek explains, “We’re sending truckloads that have beans and rice and water and canned goods.”
Director Stefan Radelich says, “Some of the places that we are working with have drive-through assembly lines where they are servicing up to 800 to 1,000 families a day.”
Feed the Hungry has a volunteer in the gulf region every two weeks. Radelich adds, “There’s always somebody down in touch to tell us what the needs and tell us things are going as they need to.”
Bottled water is now in abundance, and families now want cleaning supplies. It basically goes in phases in what things that they need. People have no choice. They are literally depending on rest of the country to help them right now.

We’ll have a good assortment survival gear – tents, sleeping bags, compact camping stoves, mess kits etc).”, explains Stefan, “We are praying that the company will release them quickly and pass them on to us… please pray that this happens TODAY.”
“There is a window of opportunity to airlift the goods to Islamabad free of charge” says Stefan Radelich, “This is vitally important as ocean-freight will take too long to get there, as you know its been almost two weeks since the earthquake and lives are literally hanging in the balance because of the weather.”
“We’re praying and believing for quick action to be taken TODAY… time is of the essence. Let’s stand together in faith and confidence, believing the LORD to work it out quickly.”
Please join with us in prayer and agreement that this urgently needed goods will be released and airlifted this weekend.

24/10/05 – Pakistan Earthquake Relief – Ministering to spirit, soul & body
Salik John, our partner on the ground from the Christian Evangelical Fellowship (CEF) of Pakistan, is a very impressive and capable young man.
CEF is well established in the Lahore region and Salik has had a call to plant churches in the land north of Islamabad– a prophetic call both he and his father questioned seeing that the area has historically been militantly Muslim and closed to the gospel.
As the boxing day tsunami opened the gates to Aceh Indonesia, the Christian response to this disaster will open hardened hearts for the gospel and the church.
Salik sent this great testimony confirming hearts are already changing in hardline muslims in Pakistan:
“Yesterday our team went to two different villages where most of the homes were destroyed. We took water, milk, rice, snacks and 100 blankets. We distributed all the blankets. It was getting dark so could not distribute some water and food. Tomorrow we are going back to the affected area again with 100 blankets and the left over water and food.
During the distribution people were having conversations that Christians are helping us without any religious discrimination and it shows their concern for humanity. These people are extremely fanatic Muslims – so to hear these kinds of comments from them is a miracle.
Praise God! We were able to show the Love of Jesus and His name was glorified. Please continue to pray for our safety, wisdom and the anointing to reach to this tough area. Salik”
26/10/05 – TD Jakes is coming to Sydney

23/11/05 – Global Updates
We are continuing to send finances through to Pakistan for Ps. Salik to purchase urgently needed supplies. With very little ability to communicate with the outside world, we are waiting for his next scheduled update by the weekend we more details about the situation in Pakistan.
FTH is continuing to truck down supplies to churches and ministries in the gulf regions affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Volunteers are prepping 5,000 Holiday Hope boxes this week at the warehouse as well. Boxes contain holiday foods (canned ham, yams, green beans, etc.), toys for kids, and inspirational literature; they’ll be distributed to targeted families in need who have been displaced/disadvantaged by the hurricanes.
New Zealand Relief Workers
Three members from the New Zealand “Rhema Family Church” have been in the New Orleans region answering the call to help.
Ps. Colin Miller from New Zealand explains that his church was greatly challenged by the Tsunami and has desired to create a “rapid-response” team in his church which can move quickly to bring relief to disaster zones, especially in the South Pacific Area.
Members of his team are providing a boon of encouragement and lifting the spirits of local residents and workers alike. Ps. Colin explains that some volunteers have not stopped helping in the 8 weeks since the Hurricane first hit the shores, have not taken a single day of rest.
One team member was quickly assigned the responsibility of a food distribution point set up in a shopping centre. The role involves the unloading of semi-trailers to the carpark (often by hand) and the regular topping up of “picking areas” where survivors come to collect their food parcels.
The Kiwi’s have had many opportunities to minister as people specifically seek them out for prayer and encouragement.
Ps. Colin’s team members joined me in Thailand in April.
Rhema Family Church Whangarei will play a crucial part in
future relief operations in the South Pacific area.
Stefan Radelich is scheduled to head out to Ethiopia from Tues 29th November until Sunday 4th December to assess how our preparations for our food distribution in February 2006.
We are planning to step up from our usual 6 semi-trailers to a massive 60 semi-trailers for this project. Please keep this project in prayer as we seek to impact the nation.
More than ever they need our help.
