we're okay, but so many are not

a tropical storm dumped about 14 inches of water in 6 hours in the philippines this weekend. that is more than what katrina did over two days. although we experienced just a couple of downpours and some cloudy skies here in cebu, 80% of the nation's capital is flooded. 300,000 have been affected, including some members of jules' team and their families.

i know that everyone back home has seen how truly devastating flooding can be and hope you can send some prayers this way. many of these people live day to day in conditions you just cannot imagine in the first place....so, to lose the little that they had is just heartbreaking.
