Prayers and action are needed on behalf of those in Pakistan affected by the earthquake of October 8, 2005. Of particular concern are those in the mountainous areas exposed to the perilously cold weather of winter 2006.  


One doctor working among the people affected by the devastation recently told an Associated Press writer that he fears there is "a lack of apparent media attention to the disaster. He says he watches international television regularly but doesn't hear a mention of the Pakistan quake and fears the world is ignoring the issue." http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/1107AP_Quake_Herman_Blog_QK01.html  


The following link is designed to provide you with one source of the most recent information about the situation in the areas of Pakistan affected by the earthquake [the link is designed to update to the most recent news]: http://news.google.com/

Christians in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and West Virginia may be particularly in a position to assist with money to help with this need. Over $8.8 billion is available for Christians in DE, MD, NJ, OH, WV to reach out in love to those in need in Pakistan this year (if giving increased to an average of 10%, and as a result, congregations gave sixty percent of their budgets to international missions).  


An overview listing of the U.S. Church Resources Available for Global Word and Deed Mission (Dollars) by U.S. County within the U.S. States of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and West Virginia, is available at http://www.emptytomb.org/appendixD1.pdf.  


This listing will provide you with information as to whether your County in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and West Virginia is matched with Pakistan.  


If your County is matched with Pakistan, also provided in the above-mentioned listing is an estimate of how much money is potentially available by historically Christian churches in your County to reach out in love to assist with essential relief needs in Pakistan during the year 2006.  


Particularly for those Christians in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and West Virginia, your pastor or missions committee is likely in a position to assist you by identifying 1) your denomination's relief channels in Pakistan, 2) a cooperating interdenominational church entity operating in Pakistan, or 3) a direct link with churches or church agencies in Pakistan.
