Dr. Jimmy Lewis, pastor at First Baptist Church of Jasper, announced Sunday in the morning worship service that a fund for disaster relief in Japan has been established after the earthquake/ tsunami there last week.
Gifts to the disaster relief fund will be channeled through the Baptist World Aid. Dr. Lewis said he had talked to Dr. Paul Montacute at Baptist World Aid and learned that a specially trained disaster relief team is already on the ground in Japan.
“I have confidence in the Baptist World Aid ministry and I am confident the offering will be used to meet the needs of the people of Japan,” Dr. Lewis said.
