Local Minister Looking For Donations To Help Cyclone Victims In India

Last updated on Thursday, October 24, 2013

(BEDFORD) - Rev. Dr. Arthur Wilmoth is raising funds for the residents of India that were hit by Cyclone Phailin on October 11.

Rev. Wilmoth says the cyclone hit southern India and destroyed many towns and displaced more than 500,000 people.

He has opened an account at Chase Bank in Bedford to help the residents of India.

Rev. Wilmoth spent two months in Andhra Pradesh with a national pastor Rev. Piridi Paul serving the people with food, visiting tribal villages and preaching the gospel.

"It was like going back in time 100 years, no toilets in the village, lots of hot and humid conditions," he wrote. "Very unsanitary condition with billions of people, all very colorfully dressed. I feel in love with the people of India. But they need our help in this great time of need."

Wilmoth is calling on Bedford residents to help purchase food and supplies.

"The funds will be sent directly to Rev. Piridi who will distribute the food and supplies to the villages hardest hit by the cyclone," Wilmoth says.
