Jay Hallowell, missionary of OMF International, posted the following on Facebook:

“Life is not yet back to normal for many after Typhoon Glenda/Rammasun… Some still have no electricity. Others are only getting electricity for part of the day… Damage reports from the networks of churches with which we work are still trickling in. There are many opportunities for good works and good words… Please pray for our Lord to strengthen His people here for these works and words.”

The death toll nears 100. Quezon province is reported to be the worst hit area. We continue to communicate and plan ways to help victims. Please continue praying for our suffering people, especially for local pastors and workers who are reaching out and ministering God’s love to affected families and children in word and in deed.

About Glem Melo

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.
