On December 16th, a powerful typhoon (hurricane) roared over the Philippines, causing widespread destruction. We are diligently working to help and send relief to our many churches who suffered extensive damage. Ethel and I would like to thank all of you who have been praying for our people in the Philippines. We also want to thank any of you who sent donations to help us initiate our on-going recovery efforts. To date, we’ve sent funds overseas to our headquarters, and based upon the information we’ve received, aid and relief is being distributed nationwide. We’ve included a photo sampling of this effort. We’re being told that basic utilities are slowly being restored, and the issue of food and water is somewhat better, but so much more still needs to be done.  
Here is our church on Dinagat Island, along the east coast of Mindanao, as it appeared before Typhoon Odette.  
Here is that same church, the day after Typhoon Odette. This level of destruction is widespread across our church network.
Here are bags loaded with clothing, food, and personal hygiene products, ready to be transported to the devastated churches like those on Dinagat island.  
Each bag contains basic necessities that will last for up to one week or so, depending on the severity of the needs.  
Your donations are paying for the food and water that we’re sending out to our pastors and churches.
Our efforts to provide food, water and aid is organized and efficient. We don’t waste any of your donated funds.  
Here is one of the generators MKMI donated to provide power where power was most needed. This unit is being transported from Ozamiz to critical locations over 24 hours away.  
We appreciate your faithful prayers of agreement for these priority issues we’re dealing with now in the Philippines:  
In the Philippines:

Typhoon Odette. Extensive repair needs to be undertaken in the wake of this storm. Agree with us for basic utilities and social services to be restored as quickly as possible. Also agree with us for generous donations sent to MKMI USA, which we will wire overseas to help any of our displaced families and rebuild their homes and churches. 
Ministry Income. Agree with us for steady and sufficient monthly income to run the ministry and continue all avenues of outreach without interruption. We’re feeding on God’s faithfulness
(Psalms 37:3).
We want you to know that every dollar given towards this relief project is going directly to our people and pastors in need of that help. Not one dime or dollar is being diverted to “administrative costs”, as it is with many other humanitarian organizations. We thank you for what you’ve given and encourage you to continue with your prayers and financial generosity. We’ve raised a significant amount to help, but there are still many churches and pastors that need help rebuilding their lives and ministries. 
We’ll collect your donated funds, and wire them to our MKMI PHILIPPINES office for dissemination, per our instructions and guidance. Thank you for doing what you can to help! In upcoming COLD-WATER newsletters, I’ll keep you abreast of where and how your donations are being used. And remember, your gifts are always tax-deductible. What better way to start the New Year!  
Ethel and I want you to know how important you are to the on-going work of MKMI in the Philippines, and around the world. We are presently in a good position financially and expect that to be the case going forward into 2022. We believe we’ll get back to the Philippines as soon as possible, to resume effective and full-scale ministry operations. But wherever we are, we know we have got partners like you to lean on, as we all stand in faith for complete victory over this global pandemic attack of the enemy.  
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. 
Mark 16:17-18
There are signs that should be following every believer when we obey the Great Commission of Mark 16:15-18. These are not signs reserved only for pastors, missionaries, Bible school graduates, etc. They are signs that should be following everyone who is born-again. Notice one of the promised signs is that believers lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. If you are a believer with hands, you’re qualified! You don’t need anything other than your faith in God’s Word to do this. Do you obey this command? If not, why not? Don’t be afraid. You are not the healer anyway – Jesus is. All He asks is that we cooperate with Him and do our part, just like it is with our physical bodies. Our thinking and decision-making is up in our heads, but they are carried out through our bodies. In the same way, Jesus is the Head, but we’re the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22). The Head can only do what the body does. Lay your hands on the sick. They are God’s divine conduits that transfer His power through you to those in need of healing.  
When chasing the enemy who was attempting to escape, Judges 8:4 tells us that Gideon and his men were exhausted but still in pursuit. In spiritual combat today, this is a mindset that must be cultivated and protected whenever you set out to believe God and appropriate His blessings by faith. The devil will always do his best to block God’s flow of goodness in your life. He’s patient in his efforts, hoping to get you to the point where you decide to quit. As such, there will be times when exhaustion sets in, and the temptation to give up is great. It is then you must press on, stay steady and refuse to waver until you have what God has promised. In this 7-part teaching, Apostle Mike examines the need and the ways to maintain exhausted pursuit until the enemy is defeated and victory has been won.
