As I sit here on the the edge of my daughters bed here on the beautiful island of Guam, I am aware of your love for me and my family. The quietness of the night with a hint of Jim Brickman playing in the background has set the mood of reflection. I see peace in the eyes of my children. When they talk, I hear happiness and hope. When I ask my kids “who is the one person you love more than mom and dad?” I am proud to hear them say JESUS! You have given them everything they need in life. At such a young age, I can already see you working in them. All the blessings I have coming to me…lord, redirect them to my kids. They are wiser than I ever was or will be. I have wasted many opportunities that you have given me. I promise I will see to it that the kids continue to know where all their blessings come from and teach them to be bold to use it. In Jesus name amen.
Check back often for updates before, during, and after the typhoon has passed. God be with us all.
I am writing this from manila with regular communication with people in the Visayas region (expected landfall area).

Well the typhoon has come and pass and to be honest, it was uneventful in Manila. The city did a really good job in making sure that everyone that needed to be evacuated got the help they needed. The problem now going forward is that some people who evacuated and checked into shelters saw little or no effects from the typhoon. They may be stubborn and not pay attention to future earnings.

Worst of the typhoon should be hitting manila in about 12 hours. Was told winds will be around 50-90 kph but rains can be torrential possibly leading to flash floods. If you know manila, you know that will be a certainty. It’s an overcast day. Schools are cancelled today and private sector jobs have the option to cancel today as well (most have).

View of Manila Golf and Country Club from Global City. It’s hot and to be honest people here are not at all worried about the typhoon. They are saying that the the worst of the storm will be arriving tonight.

Some are taking this typhoon seriously, most aren’t. We have ballroom dancing at Market Market in Global City as the typhoon makes landfall in Samar. Typhoon is expected to be in our general area within the day.
Give thanks to our lord and savior for sparing this country from devastating forces. The Philippines be blessed.

Well, I certainly picked a good time to have a business trip in Manila. Expecting winds around a 122 mph (197kph) and I am staying on the 16th floor in a condo. I’m flying back to Guam on Monday but based on the Storm track models, that seems to be unlikely. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE PHILIPPINES. The path of this storm is similar to that of Super Typhoon Yolanda.
Received this today in the prayer request page. Please life up P.C. in your prayers.
Prayer List: Please Please Please Pray the HOLY SPIRIT leads as many people possible to pray for this Prayer Request…Please Pray with all your faith that GOD will Bless me (P.C.) with my Soul Mate as soon as it is possible with God . I’ve never had a girlfriend and been Praying and hoping for one for at least 20 years, I’m 42 years old now….Pray also GOD Blesses every person that Prays for me…Thank You
P.C., You will be in all our prayers. We not only pray for companionship but for a clarity of mind. We pray that the Lord will reveal to you clearly what he has planned for you. As a child of christ, YOU HAVE PURPOSE and God HAS A PLAN FOR YOU. Not all of us will have that special partner just as not all women will be mothers. The hard thing for us to take is that sometimes the will of God is completely different than what we had in mind. Take solace that the lord ALWAYS has our best interest in mind. I leave you with this from the good book…
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. ” Romans 8:28
If there is something you would like fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to join you in prayer, you can send us a request here on our prayer request form.
Lately, I have been attacked a lot spiritually. Nothing bad or drastic, just a bunch of small events that are piling up on top of each other. The first few were easy to brush up but the last couple have started me along a mindset of being negative. It’s days like this that i need to take my eyes off what is giving me the problems and focus my eyes on the Lord. Prayer is more than just a wish list of wants and needs. Prayer is my opportunity to talk to my father and plead my case. It is a great relief to know that i have the God of Justice on my side.
The lyrics of the song “Awesome God” says it all…
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom power and love
Our God is an awesome God
Speaking the of song Awesome God, the version from R-Swift is my favorite. I first heard this song when UFC lightweight Benson Henderson walked out to the octagon with this song blasting. I admire Benson for being at the top of his profession and not ashamed to wear his faith on his sleeve. like our motto says…WHY BE AN UNDERCOVER CHRISTIAN!!!
