When Disaster Hits

And tough has definitely been on the island of the Philippines!  At least 10,000 and counting lost their lives through a tremendous natural disaster the world has ever seen.  But I am reminded today,

Psalm 46: 1-3 
"God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride."

 Recently, I've been getting news from a friend of mine whose family has been greatly affected.  It is devastating to hear details how people, children and old, struggled to survive the Typhoon.  That is why my family and I have been praying for a way to send help.  We know we don't have the luxury to fly out their ourselves.  We also know that there are those who are sent there and responds to the need of being there physically to help. So we have found other ways to help in a way we can.  If you are on the same boat as we are we hope this blog finds its way to give you an idea how to also help.  Follow the links we recommend to support financially.  It will continue to build as we go.  But it's all up to you to be directed.  We know ultimately God will use all the resources He has given us to show His faithfulness to the people in the Philippines.
