URGENT PRAYER NEEDED

Please, PLEASE keep praying for Pastor Alex and his family and the people of the Phillippines. They are having terrible floods, and it is predicted to keep raining through February. Half of the city where they live is under water, and 10's of thousands of people are being affected. Many have to be rescued by the military. These people already have nothing, but what little they did is gone. All of the school supplies they had are damaged beyond recovery. Pastor Alex and his family had raw sewage running through his home, church and school. They are also dealing with landslides due to all the water.

The Bible says that where two or three are gathered together in prayer, He is in the midst of them. I ask that you all join in prayer with me is asking God to stop the rain (which is predicted to continue through February), to recede the waters as he did with the River Jordan. He is the Master of the wind and the waves. Please also ask for supernatural strength for Pastor Alex so he can be the light the Filipino people need during the devastating time.

The city (Cagayan de Oro) has been declared a disaster area.

If anyone would like to help financially, please leave a comment and I will get you to the person with the info. She has a paypal account set up, and will wire money so we can get it to them asap.

Thanks.

Hi Kerri
I took special interest in this posting as we lived in the Philippines from 1974-76 when my husband was in the air force....two of our children are from the P.I.
I have heard nothing about this on the TV....don't know if I missed it or what.
I am lifting them up in prayer.

Thank you Renee! I don't watch much of the news,and I don't know if it's been on it or what, but Pastor Alex has been e-mailing me daily (or more) to keep me posted. Are you familiar with the Cagayan de Oro City area?

I don't recall that area. We lived on Luzon in Angeles City right outside Clark Air Force Base.Two of our children were adopted as babies when we lived there.
The Philippines have a special place in our hearts.
