Philippine Baptist Disaster Relief Ministry

Every year the Philippines experiences a wide variety of disasters that leave multitudes of people in distress. This ministry seeks to help people in affected areas by providing them with much needed food, medicines, clothes, etc during the times of disaster. This is accomplished by our partnership with local churches who are willing to personally help these people at these times and share the gospel with them at the same time.


Ministry Information

The Philippines is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire where there are frequent earthquakes and active volcanoes. The Philippines also experiences regular disasters stemming from powerful typhoons, floods, landslides, fires, and even wars. The Philippine Baptist Disaster Relief Ministry (PBDRM) started towards late 2016 with the main goal of evangelizing the lost by distributing relief items to those who are affected and preaching the gospel to them at the same time. During times of disaster, hearts of people are sometimes more open to listening to the gospel than at other times and we realize that people often won't care about what we believe until they believe that we care. A secondary goal of PBDRM is to assist poor believers in severely affected areas with essential items. PBDRM is a ministry of New Life Baptist Church in Mexico, Pampanga and there are multiple partnering churches who regularly support the ministry. This partnership of supporters gives the ministry the financial ability to purchase the items that we distribute to people affected by disasters. If you would like to know more information about PBDRM activities you can (1) download our regularly posted newsletters below (2) visit the PBDRM Facebook page here where you'll also find many more pictures of ministry work.
