Hundreds of Baptists from the U.S. and around the world made an historic pilgrimage to the country  of  Myanmar on December 5-8, 2013.

Super typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippine islands on November 8th with devastating force. The Philippine Red Cross estimates that at least 3,600 people were killed by the storm. That number could grow as officials make their way to remote areas made nearly inaccessible by Haiyan.  International Ministries missionaries in the Philippines, Debbie Mulneix and Jonathan and Thelma Nambu, have been contacted by IM and are safe. 
In response to this disaster, $10,000 in emergency relief funds is being sent from One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) to help victims of this massive typhoon. <<Read more>>
