. . . an important arm of the church of Christ that comes to areas that have undergone serious disaster. They came years ago to Kingsland, when we had experienced severe flooding. We started last Sunday to take up a collection for the team to help with defraying their great expenses. If you haven’t contributed yet, you still have the opportunity this Sunday and next Sunday, January 30.  THANK YOU!


We are currently amid a special collection to help the Church of Christ Disaster Relief efforts from recent U.S. storms and tornados. We also are aware of the devastating typhoon which struck the Philippines. Our partners in the gospel there, Richard & Becky Emperado, have been helping those near them; especially at a fishing village near them which was largely destroyed, and its fishing boats wrecked. We chose to send them funds to help in that effort. This is a message we received from them:

We are so blessed to have Highland Lakes congregation on our side in the middle of this devastation brought by the super typhoon. I believe our faith in the Lord must be manifested through our love and actions. We are the “hands of Christ” – Feeding, Healing, and Counseling these folks and kids who have been traumatized by the typhoon. Becky and I are planning to help rebuild their boats. Having the boats will enable them to stand on their own feet and catch fish again to have money to put food on their tables. At the price per boat, the funds ya’ll sent could already help build 8 boats. I will be the one to buy the materials needed, the plywood, nails, and epoxy, and the fishermen will build their boats. We truly appreciate ya’ll’s partnership & generosity in this great undertaking to help give hope to these fishermen & their families.

Thank you, Richard and Becky Emperado
