Typhoon Hit Casiguran-Agta & Others

October 22, 2015

Friends,
Please be praying for the Casiguran-Agta, the people group I was raised among, and those near them in the actual town of Casiguran, Philippines. This week’s Typhoon Koppu (Lando) hit hardest there and the people need supplies and shelter.

Even so the LORD is good. We know “His way is in the whirlwind and the storm” (Nahum 1:3) and stormy winds are included in those servants that carry out His orders. (Ps. 148:8) But through it, God is merciful, full of compassion, and we can trust that He has His reasons for what He both commands and allows.

Please, let’s be praying that God works His good purposes out of this typhoon, that everyone will fear Him, pray to Him, and turn from all sin, and that people will be motivated to help those who have been hurt. Let’s be praying that those who have much will be tender and respond to those who have little… or nothing. Let’s pray that all hearts will be moved to assist in whatever way available to them, including to pray for the salvation of souls as well as physical relief for the victims.

Sincerely,
with love,
Rachel
