  • 347 areas flooded in 42 municipalities

“Tropical storm ‘Maring’ (international codename: Trami) continues to dump what is described as some of the heaviest rains in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, causing floods that have killed seven, turning roads into rivers and trapping people in homes and shelters.” – Inquirer.net

“Oh pray for mercy! God has treasures of mercy! Prayer is the key which opens these treasures; and in prayer, be sure to carry Christ in your arms, for all the mercy comes through Christ! . . . Though God may refuse us when we come for mercy in our own name—yet he will not when we come in Christ’s name.” – Thomas Watson

Lord, be merciful to our people.

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
