Please Pray for the Flood Victims in Manila

Manila was hit with 13.4 inches of rain in a period of 6 hours on Saturday from typhoon Ondoy. The flooding is reported to be the worst Manila has seen in over 40 years. The official death toll is at 140 last I heard, but my brother in law told me personally that the real number will be much higher. Many of the places affected are areas that I have frequently visited while in the Philippines.

Please pray. And if you can spare some change, my charity, the Philippine Aid Society, has established a relief fund. To make a tax deductible donation, simply indicate "flood relief" in the comments/note field. 100% of your donation will be designated to the relief effort.
