Samaritan's Purse has airlifted over 30 tons of emergency items and more than a dozen disaster relief team specialists to the Bahamas, after the islands were hit by deadly Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 storm. Army veteran and son of Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham, Edward Graham joined Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Wednesday to give an update on the disaster relief efforts Samaritan's Purse is launching.
After a weekend like we've just experienced, many have questions about God and why He would allow people to suffer and endure difficult circumstances. Wednesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Moody Bible Institute Professor Winfred Neely joined us to help answer the tough question, "Where is God When Bad Things Happen?"
Samaritan's Purse aims at service for the church worldwide to propagate "the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ". It seeks to specialize in emergency relief, shelter, water and sanitation, food and nutrition, medical care and public health, HIV/AIDS, and community-based livestock and livelihood projects.
Dr. Winfred Neely (B.A., D.Min. Trinity International University; M.A. Wheaton and Doctoral degree in Old Testament at the University of Bristol, England.) He is an ordained minister of the Gospel and a full time professor of Biblical Exposition and pastoral studies at Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Prior to joining the faculty at Moody, Winfred served churches in the City of Chicago and is currently Senior pastor of the Judson Baptist Church in Oak Park, Ill.
