Typhoon Update




Typhoon 'Pedring' made its way through the Philippines. Yesterday, we had brownouts throughout the day to go along with the heavy wind and rain. Thankfully, we only had some minor leaks at our house, but as you can see from the pictures, others were not as fortunate. Today we decided to drive to the church to see if there was any major damage. There were just a couple places with some very minor flooding and our small tent fell over and broke, but other than that we are thankful that it wasn't more severe.

I do want to especially ask for your prayers for our church people. Many of them have been affected by the flooding. We had planned to try to visit some of the different areas where they lived to see if we could help, but some of the flooded roads were too risky to try to drive through. As far as I know everyone is safe, but we did hear about a girl in the neighboring barangay who was killed yesterday due to a falling tree.

I would like to also ask you to pray for continued protection as the Philippine weather service, PAGASA, has said they are expecting another storm, named 'Quiel', to possibly arrive later this week.

Thank you for the continued prayers, God bless.
