Update 2 4:40 pm.
Weather is clearing up now as Guam is now in COR 4. We dodge a bullet here. Pray for Rota as they shouldered the brunt of the typhoon.
Update 1 8:20 am.
Just opened the front door. Still raining hard on the island. Still under flash flood warnings and COR 1.
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…
The calm before the storm. 24 hours before arrival.
We have a God who listens to us always. Bless your children and release all that our God has planned for your family and your children.
Praise The Lord who always provides!
As we travel back to Tokyo and Atlanta, I thank you for making this trip a success. We were able to secure the safety, comfort, and happiness of our kids while we follow your will and return to Guam/Manila. I pray for continued strength in not letting the rumors, gossip and ill will of others take away from the blessings you have shown me. You are a faithful God and have afforded me opportunities I do not deserve! I do not know why i was chosen but i am eternally grateful that i am yours.
As the time approaches and people begin to talk, I am getting more nervous. I must stop and ask myself:
Why do I care what you think?
From Moses to Noah, Abraham to Job; the bible is full role models who were blessed by God and did not listen to conventional wisdom. I am no where near these men but I can still try to act like them!
I do not mean for this to come off as arrogant and I certainly do not call myself self righteous. I am just in a point in my life where I no longer care about the opinions of others. No longer will I care about what others say. I am not here to please you. I am here to please my GOD.
In Jesus name I pray, amen
