Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) – Final

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).

Final Update
12/8/12 11:00 pm EST
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.

Update 5
12/7/14 11:45 pm EST

Buildings are now covered with rain clouds as compared to previous pics.

Picture taken 10 mins later. Rain has now completely covered makati.

Update 4
12/7/14 7:35 pm EST

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).

Update 3

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.

Update 2

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.

Update 1

Breakfast stroll around Makati at the Salcedo Saturday Market. Lots of people here. No one is worried about the upcoming typhoon around this area.

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.

Prayer Request From “P.C.”

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.

My God Fights My Battles..Our God Is An Awesome God!

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!!!

Original text.
The family has finally experienced our first typhoon on Guam. The eye of the typhoon arrived around 4:00 am. The pictures here are the view from the house. I pray the severity of the typhoon was off the shores of Guam. God bless and watch over the people of Guam and Rota (was much closer to the eye of the storm) with safety and security. Update coming…
