Corruption in the Philippines

This is a email I received just a few hours ago from a bro. in Christ in the Philippines. His name is Julie Notarte he has been a Christian since 1971 and is one of the stalwarts for Christ in that country. You can verify that by the names of American brethren I will give to you at the close of this post.

Brethren, I am sure you all get tired of my emails about the need to support these brethren. I hope that you can see by this email from bro. Notarte just what kind of a life they live and they still preach the Gospel of our Lord.

I don't want to be critical, but it's just something wrong with American Christians when we turn a deaf ear to our brethren and not help them at all. You can see in his email that most of their help for food and other social services come from Catholic Charities. That is a shame.

We know there is a real need and we do nothing. I for one do not want to try to explain that to my God in the day of judgment.

I'm sorry for the tone of the email but something has got to be done for these brethren. Put yourself in their place. Do unto others as you would have them do to you (in similar circumstances).

Please contact the following brethren for verification of bro. Julie Notarte's character and faithfulness to our Lord.
