Typhoon Damage

On May 24, 2023 Typhoon Mawar struck Guam with category 4 winds and torrential rain, shredding much of the Western Pacific Island. Praise God that no lives were lost. However, property damage is extensive and Pacific Islands University sustained $800,000 worth of damage that affects all the classrooms at the small school in the village of Mangilao. The 140 mph winds completely removed the roof off one classroom.

PIU has been successfully weathering storms since it was founded in 1976. Their primary mission is to train Christian leaders and educators for the peoples of the Western Pacific Islands. Even though they are fully accredited, because they serve a population with few financial resources, recovering from such crises is always a challenge. This one comes at a very difficult time as the school has been working to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. But their faith is unfazed and they are expecting God to provide in ways greater than ever before.

I've been involved with PIU as a faculty member, administrator, and financial supporter since 2006. So, I am inviting friends from around the world to partner in the mission of PIU and help them rebuild the damaged campus. It is critical in these uncertain times that this truly unique school continues to serve the people and churches of Micronesia and the Western Pacific Islands.

Please consider sending a gift to SEEDS for PIU, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity that supports the work of Pacific Islands University. Because SEEDS has no paid staff and low administrative expenses we can afford to channel 100% of your contributions into the work of rebuilding the school. Checks can be sent to:
