Pillar of Fire International Headquarters at Zarephath
in Somerset, New Jersey, lies on the Raritan River, which was reported
to have crested at ten feet above its banks following more than ten inches
of rain brought in by Hurricane Floyd. The main campus, including Zarephath
Bible Institute, Zarephath Community Chapel, and WAWZ Christian Radio,
was under seven feet of water and by Friday morning was under 100% evacuation.
Temple Christian Day School, the Pillar of Fire elementary school, is located
in nearby Bound Brook, which was inundated by the out-of-banks river.
To the best of our knowledge there have been
no injuries or loss of life on our campus consequent to this devastating
flood. However, the property damage, both to the church organization and
to the personal belongings of the many staff members who live on campus,
is expected to total many hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Your prayers and your financial support will
both be greatly appreciated. Belleview Christian College will forward any
donations. Make your checks payable to Belleview Christian College and
mention "flood relief" in the memo area; or you may donate by credit card
