For the first time in my life I have now seen a terrible and horrific tragedy. But the hardest part is that it happened in my homeland, Philippines. Our country is small but the people are very strong and courageous. We have endured different tragedies like earthquakes and typhoons every year. We Filipinos have remained strong but I also know we are vulnerable.
In the midst of different storms and tregedies, we continued to trust in God and hope that life will turn around. Now that I know God and have encountered His love I have no doubt that He loves the Philippines. What looks like a tragedy is not a tragedy for God. He always works everything for good.
Below is my prayer for my fellow Filipinos. I love you all.
