Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines

I'm sure everyone knows about the huge category 5 typhoon (Haiyan) that has recently hit the Philippines islands. CNN's news today stated that "Haiyan was probably the strongest tropical cyclone to hit land anywhere in the world in recorded history."

Many people joined us in praying for the safety of our children and their caregivers, and we are so thankful to each of you for your prayers. We learned earlier today from our children's shelter that all the children and staff are fine.

Also, the local news station decided to come out to the house today and interview us asking about our children in the Philippines and about the typhoon.

Due to power outages and no internet connectivity, our weekly Skype session with our children had to be canceled. However, we should be able to talk to the children next week.

We praise the Lord for the safety of our children and their caregivers. Please continue to pray for all the Filipino people who are still suffering from the effects of the typhoon.
