Jo Anne and I, have been keeping a close see on the news the last several days since Tropical Storm Ketsana (Ondoy) dumped a month's worth of rain in 12 hours. According to Time Magazine around 80 percent of Manila was flooded. I am glad that Jo Anne is safe. Her family made it safety through the storm and the flooding. The flooding was the worst flooding in over forty years. Her family and friends are all safe but they do have damage to their homes. Some are staying at the mission where Jo Anne works while cleaning up their homes and help others affected by the storm. The death toll is now at 246 and 42 missing and with many homeless.
Now as the people of the Philippines are recovering from the flooding there are two other storms head towards the country. Please continue to pray for the people of the Philipines. One way you can help the people in the Philippines by making a donation to the Philippine Aid Society.
