UPDATE on IRMA Response

September 20, 2017

Christian Disaster Response continues to do needs and damage assessment in South Florida where hurricane Irma did most of its damage.  We have temporary stopped feeding at our Winter Haven location due to shortage of funding to purchase more food.  We continue to distribute cleaning supplies wherever they are needed.

Prayer Requests:   

-For strength to make it through the long days that we are putting in.

-For more volunteers that can help us.

-For our funding shortage that is preventing us from meeting all the needs that have been coming in.

Thank you for your continued support.
We really appreciate it.

IMMEDIATE Need in the Philippines

July 5, 2017

I received this urgent request for assistance from our team leader in the Philippines .   Please pray about making a donation to help save lives.

Read his email for details.


Dear Dr. Patterson,

Thank you once again. Your blessing and caring for us is sincerely appreciated.

What the internally displaced people needs are toilets, water supply and tents. Solar power kits are also needed. We would need about P150,000, Philippine currency or about  $3000 USD. The amount will be for the construction of two toilets, a deep well, a multipurpose hall, and seed money for an organic farm. The target area right now is in Iligan City where more than 200,000 IDP are crowded in already filthy evacuation centers.

The evacuees badly need these to begin picking up their lives. Relief goods will never be enough. Reconstruction must begin now. Please help us again in anyway you can. 

God bless and your family and the rest of CDR.


Please make a generous contribution by, credit or debit card on our web site.  It is safe and Secure using PayPal.

We’ve been busy! Praise God!

March 28, 2017

CDR has been really busy meeting the Spiritual and Physical needs of suffering people.  Your prayerful support makes it possible to save lives and restore communities across the country and around the world.

We have shipped thousands of meals, soap, and clothing to Southern Haiti, where Hurricane Matthew caused major destruction and the loss of many lives.

Following the Hurricane, the other side of the country was flooded.   CDR along with a partner ministry sent a team to conduct medical clinics, share the Gospel, and baptize 14 new Christians.

Two of our volunteers took a trailer load of New Blankets, soap,  Recovery Kits, DVDs of the Jesus Film and other Gospels Stories along with Bibles in a Middle Eastern Language.  To our partners CCM/Eagle Missions, in Fort Mill, SC.  To be added to others supplies and shipped to an un-named country.  Name withheld for security reason.

While all of this was going on, we moved our warehouse to:
1902 Barton Park Road #205
Auburndale, Florida 33823.

Our offices were relocated to:
1800 6th Street NW
Winter Haven, Florida 33881

Please remember our mailing address remains:
