Flooding in the Phillipines- A call for prayer and support

Hi there, I got this mail from a dear friend, Marilyn CamaClang, this morning. She was part of the Making a Difference Actionteam of WARC (MADIP), working in South Africa on the themes of the Accra document. Tyrone du Preez initiated a call for prayer and lets heed this call and see how we can make a differnce.

Marilyn (on the pic, in the makeshift boat) writes:

Dear All,
In spite of the alarming news from the Philippines, I still have much reason to greet you all with love and peace in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

First, my family and the rest of those in our province, which is only kilometers away from Manila, are spared from the recent flooding.

Second, we are now able to connect with you after a week of silence. Our office was also affected by flood and telecommunications and computer system were all down. (We are located in one of the finest residential areas in Pasig City and residents were shocked for experiencing this for the first time!)

Third, we have experienced how much love and compassion we can draw from each other to be able to surpass this trial. (We have already organized two relief operations in favor of our community center in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City. Until now, the whole community is submerged with waist level of floodwaters. Christian Mission Service Philippines, Inc, my employer, has a community center here providing subsidized educational services to pre-schoolers, educational support from grade school to university and congregational ministries to the community. We have stopped operation since last week and our people are just waiting for our help. Please note that this community is at the heart of Pasig City, only few meters away from the city hall but is now accessible only by boat.

Lastly, for you and all concerned for remembering us in your prayers. It is indeed what we need in these times of great crises in our country.

Please continue praying, still many are suffering and need our helping hands. Pray for awakening, that we may now hear the cries of creation and the message of our Creator.

Let us continue to give thanks for we are at our best to extend help and to care.

Best regards,

Marilyn M. Camaclang
