Update from the Philippines

Please keep praying. The last new release from the area stated there are 20 dead and 300,000 displaced. And this is NOT monsoon season.

People are sleeping in open air, covered basketball courts made of cement. Some have 2 walls, some have none. There is a huge concern about older folks sleeping on the cold cement, and no one has mosquito nets, so malaria is a huge threat.

Please continue to pray that the waters will recede, and that enough people send money to help them to get everyone a mosquito net, at the very least. They are also in need of medical supplies, bandages, school supplies, you name it, they could use it. If you would like more information, please leave a comment or e-mail me.
