Members Respond to Disasters Around the Worlddisaster
Several members stepped up to provide relief for churches and congregants hit by disasters around the world. Pentecostal Church of God (PCG) is engaging first responder teams in the Florida panhandle and Georgia in response to Hurricane Michael that hit on October 10th. PCG is supplying aid through its mobile units. 

An earthquake and tsunami struck an island in Indonesia while a typhoon inflicted casualties and damage in the Philippines. In the U.S., Hurricane Florence whipped the Carolina coast.

In Indonesia, the island of Sulawesi was hit by a monstrous earthquake and tsunami on Friday, Sept. 28. The magnitude 7.5 quake cut off power to the tsunami alert system, leaving residents totally without warning when the resulting 20-foot-high tsunami broke upon the island. 

Thousands have lost their homes, and more than 840 lost their lives. The death toll is expected to rise sharply, as rescuers struggle to search for hundreds of missing in the hardest-hit areas. It is reported that cries for help could be heard from under a hotel in the city of Palu until Sunday night. 

Approximately 1,200 inmates escaped from three prisons across Sulawesi. Area hospitals are overwhelmed.  The Indonesia Assemblies of God, AGWM, and Convoy of Hope have joined hands in their swift response to this overwhelming tragedy.

Filipino Foursquare churches and members responded quickly in the wake of Super Typhone Mangkhut that claimed the lives of more than 100 people and left a widespread trail of damage. Assemblies of God World Missions (AGWM) also sent emergency relief funds to AGWM missionaries and national leadership in the Philippines to purchase emergency relief supplies.

In the U.S., the Church of God of Prophecy (COGOP) is leading a relief drive for churches
affected by Hurricane Florence that hit the Carolinas in September. COGOP found hurricane damage at local churches, parsonages and some homes of their members.

Typhoon Mangkhut hit the Philippines in mid-September.
The International Pentecostal Holiness Church has been actively involved in providing disaster relief both domestically and internationally over the last several months. As Hurricane Florence approached the East Coast, Disaster Relief USA (DRUSA) deployed mobile feeding kitchens to Lake City, South Carolina, and New Bern, North Carolina, to provide over 14,000 hot meals for first responders and others impacted by Hurricane Florence. Men's Ministries also mobilized Men of Action to assist with clean up and recovery in devastated communities.
Internationally, People to People Ministries is providing assistance for flooding in South India, earthquake relief in Indonesia, and typhoon recovery in the Philippines. To partner with these ministries as they share Christ's love in times of need, please visit .

Open Bible Churches is a financial partner with Convey of Hope, responding to relief needs in the wake of recent disasters.  Highly regarded for its distribution model, Convoy of Hope is consistently among the first to respond to disasters around the world.  Convoy's origins are with the Assemblies of God.

Register now for the 2019 Annual Meeting: Celebrating 25 Years of BreakthroughPCCNA2019
Twenty five years ago, the 'Memphis Miracle' that spurred the creation of the Pentecostal Charismatic Churches of North America was born. PCCNA is remembering that miraculous moment when a white Assembly of God pastor, Donald Evans, washed the feet of a black minister, Bishop Ithiel Clemons of Church of God in Christ. Pentecostal historian, Dr. Vinson Synan, recounts that moment here that broke walls down between black and white Pentecostals.

On March 19, PCCNA members and friends will gather to commemorate that historic occasion as well as celebrate with future next generation leaders in the church. A service will be held at Mason Temple on Tuesday, March 19 which is open to the public. Here are the details about the 2019 PCCNA Annual Conference:

Rev. David Wells shows the certificate by the tree planted in Luthergarten.
On October 1, 2018, PCCNA planted a tree in Luthergarten, Wittenberg, Germany. After a common liturgy with singing and prayers, the symbolic planting of the tree was undertaken. The tree for the Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA), USA, was planted by Rev. David Wells, General Superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. The tree is #492.

The Reformation that Martin Luther started in Wittenberg spread worldwide, impacting all mainline Protestant, Evangelical, and Pentecostal movements. The anniversary celebrated this aspect in the town of Wittenberg. In preparation for the 500-year Reformation celebration, the Luthergarten has emerged in different locations on town grounds.
