Philippines

"I got on my motorbike and went to get supplies from my home, when the winds picked up, shrapnel started flying and I couldn't see where I was. There was a weird loud buzzing sound between lightening strikes. It was a miracle that I was able to crawl back to safety. Sadly, I lost three friends who were not so fortunate. I later found my motorbike far away in a rice field." This is one of many stories told me by the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.

Hayan killed over over 10,000 people

I [Sean] was told, "You have 10 days before opening night to learn 3 solos and many pages of dialog for the principle role of the Sheik in the musical Judah Ben Hur." Seventeen staff & students from YWAM Tampa Bay went to Cebu Philippines for the month of February. Our four Discipleship Training School students told us that we helped them to have a fantastic outreach.

I just gotta be me

This region of the Philippines had just encountered great destruction when the largest typhoon in their recorded history hit last November, leaving over 10,000 dead. Since October, they have also been hit with many earthquakes, flooding and mudslides.

Ministering on Bantayan beach

We performed our show 15 times in the most devastated areas, including Bantayan Island and Bogo City. Sometimes the conditions were terrible or even dangerous.

Last year, I went as the sound guy. This year, Blake, a talented sixteen-year-old, ran sound for us. He did a fantastic job, but occasionally I had to run, in costume, out to the soundboard to assist complex problems.

Our performance at Bogo City was in a large sports dome. Its roof had been blown off during the hurricane while the entire village huddled there for safety. We had to lay boards on the floor so that our electrical equipment wasn't submerged seven inches under water. It is scary to run sound when the actors are on a wet stage and a tent keeps water from dripping on your equipment.

We performed in orphanages, malls, churches, and outside venues and the audiences were thoroughly engaged. Afterwards, many of them wanted to take pictures with us and then to pray with us. More importantly, many learned about Jesus and accepted Him into their hearts. The locals were grateful for a message of hope in the midst of their great trials.

If they're lauging at me,
that means I'm doing a good job right? Right?

We were grateful for the opportunity to offer some relief work as well. The students offered VBS style teaching in the slums. And we were able to assist with some rebuilding.
