7.0 earthquake struck the Philippines’ most populous island of Luzon last Monday. More than 50 landslides killed at least five people and injured many more. Electricity has mostly been restored, but clean water remains a concern.

Bill Passons with AMG International says, “Some of the people that we do serve did have some damage to their houses, things like cracks in foundations. We are going to try to help some of our sponsor kids’ families with those things. But that was the extent of the damage that was done to any of the AMG ministries or the constituents that we serve.”

Passons recently returned from a trip to the Philippines, his first since the COVID-19 pandemic began. “To go back kind of see what God is doing was cool. We got to visit several of the projects, specifically some of the child and youth development programs.”
