Dear beloved friends and
There are many
devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall
stand. The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall
abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. (Prov. 19:21,23)
Baseco Feeding Center
Last September 27, 2011, the Philippines has been visited
by a powerful Typhoon Pedring with international name Nesat. Nesat unleashed
flood waters and fierced winds that sent huge waves crashing over seawalls
that killed at least 21 people. Residents living near the sea front slammed
the area, caused major damage and left behind flooded towns across Metro
Manila and the northern Luzon island. Residents in Baseco rummage through
what is left of their shanties right after the typhoon went away.
We thank God because our feeding center in the area remained
and stood still despite the strong winds that struck down lots of structures
and makeshifts dwellings.
