Lets Pray For The Philippines
Yesterday most of the cities in the Philippines was badly drown by flood, due to the strong and non stop rainfall, many families were seen at their rooftops and some are brave to walk and submerged themselves in flood just to get help. This calamity is brought by a Southwest monsoon triggered by the typhoon Haikui in East of China, the rain is similar to typhoon Ondoy way back in 2009.
Yet again the Filipino people is under state of calamity, hearing and watching the news makes me sad cause many lives are in danger and most of the houses were submerged in flood. Lets pray for our fellowmen who are now facing a difficult time and let’s all hope for the safety of the Filipino people. Let’s all gather our prayers and ask for the LORDS guidance and grow our faith specially in this time of need.
We should be thankful for our safety and we are lucky that were not badly affected of this incident, but all our hearts and prayers goes to the people who badly affected by this “Habagat” which is most likely a typhoon. My sister who lives in Marikina with her family is trapped in their village and no way to go out cause all streets are in flood but that goodness they are safe and we still have good communication.
The weather will still continue just like yesterday, heavy rain will still be experienced throughout the day until tomorrow morning. So let’s all be prepared and if not necessary to go out please stay at home.
I believe that this incident will be survived by our fellowmen, just like what we did in typhoon Ondoy. I salute all our fellowmen who helped out willingly whether from the government officials, ordinary citizens and simple gestures by our countrymen. In this time of need, togetherness will ease the pain and I know that after this calamity the Filipino men will rise again with a strong faith and a loving heart.
