There hasn't been too much out of the usual here. Working hard, doing missionary work, loving it.
So I've been following what's been happening in the Philippines as close as a missionary can, and have been hoping and praying for safety for those out there. It's always tragic when things like this happen, but I'm grateful that the missionaries were safe, and now will be able to assist in rebuilding and aiding those in need, which is many. I'm grateful that no matter what the Lord loves them and will be there for all who need him, and am praying that the people of the Philippines will reach out to him in renewed vigor and faith throughout this trial. We have a Sister missionary serving out here from the Philippines and she has been a great example of faith and diligence despite the destruction that is happening in her home country among her family and friends. Prayers going out to the Philippines right now.
Rely on the Lord in all things, and we will wake up to a better tomorrow.
Love you all,
