Super Typhoon Yolanda

Just looking at the news updates gives me the creeps. Chilly feeling. Sadness is overwhelming. I think there will be more casualties. I can recall a tv reporter saying that they saw the water "storm surge" starting to rise so they went up to the third floor. He continued saying in just about 5 minutes when they looked down, the water had risen to about 10 feet. That fast, women, children and the elderly would not be able to seek refuge to a higher ground or could not even go out. What if the house has no second floor? I was like speechless for quite sometime when I saw the news. I was crying silently. No words can describe the feeling.

2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."


Update on Super Typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan

As it stands with our latest update here about the incoming super typhoon, Yolanda, or internationally known as Haiyan is expected to make landfall in Samar-Leyte Provinces by Friday around 11am to 1pm.

The said typhoon is also expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Sunday morning.

Again, for everyone located near the trajectory of this super typhoon, take all precautionary measures necessary to ensure the safety of your family and yourself.

Please stay updated on the latest news about Yolanda / Haiyan via Radio, Television and Social Networks. Keep your devices charged and topped up with extra load, just in case the need might arise to turn to them.

Be safe Philippines.

Bohol and Cebu Earthquake

This is frightening to us filipinos. A 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the Central Visayas 8:12 am on October 15, 2013. The quake left old churches and shrines damaged. The death toll is still rising. And then there is this news that there will yet be a big one yet no one can predict when it is coming. http://ph.news.yahoo.com/bohol-quake-warning-things-come-experts-warn-120148976.html There have been more than 1,300 aftershocks recorded as of today.

Alex and I have just visited Cebu last September 26, 27 and 28. Bohol and Cebu are both tourist spots and are well known for their old churches and shrines. Bohol is well known for "the chocolate hills". I just pray that Bohol and Cebu recovers from this massive devastation. This is tragic.

Let There be Peace

I am so disgusted about so many things that's been happening around. People are getting killed in so many parts of the world. There is war even in the southern part of the Philippines. And Syria..

Dear Father in heaven.. please let there be peace...

PDAF/PORKBARRELSCAM

The pork barrel scam has given rise to a call of a public gathering called "Million People March" to Luneta or Rizal Park on August 26, 2013. I don't know if I can go but I want to go to show how I resent what's been happening. The abolition of the PDAF is not a guarantee either that everything will run smoothly. Everybody must be on guard against corruption.

Metro Manila and nearby provinces are again flooded. Classes are suspended in all levels. The culprit... Storm Maring and "Habagat". Four dams are currently at critical level.
