Over 600,000 people have reportedly been affected by horrific flooding in the Philippines. Several people have died and many others are still missing. And images of the destruction are both sobering and frightening:
In the midst of the heartbreak and devastation, though, is an outpouring of prayers and support for the Filipino people:
Everything will be okay in God's plan. Keep safe everyone! #PrayForThePhilippines Believe God !
