Been a week :: Hurricane Alex

Liwanag Random Blogging Subscribe to me on YouTube
It's been a bit more than a week and we finally heard from our relatives, they are fine but just barely. Most of their possessions are gone, there is little food and clean clothing is hard to come by.

I would like to extend my plegarias and invite you to join our family in prayer for those affected by Hurricane Alex last week.

BEFORE
This is where we used to play when we were little, my cousins, siblings, and I.


Notice the foreground, that's a sidewalk ACCROSS the river... the holes are for flow.





AFTER
Now it touches that red railroad bridge...



These are just some institutions helping the affected, but the road access to the affected area are unaccessable by vehicles, they have to be transported via train or helicopter.

If you would like to send some food, water and/or clothing, use the addresses provided on the link above.

I am not sure if there is a way to make monetary donations, but once I find out more I will let you know.


THANK YOU! 
for your prayers and help.
