#PrayForThePhilippines: As floods cause devastation, hope remains [pics]

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:

di na natapos ang pagtaas ng baha. hopw everybody is still ok.

Lord keeo us all safe.
