Can you imaging walking around, hoping searching and longing for a glimpse of someone you love. The terror of knowing you may never see your family again. Many are left homeless, orphaned widowed and devastated.
For those who lived through the Typhoon in the Philippines this nightmare is a reality. Reported to be almost four times more powerful than Hurricane Katrina. A city of 200,000 is left in ruins. I keep thinking about the pictures I have seen on the news and the stories of loss. It stirs my emotions I am sure it touches yours too.
Here are three ways you can help:
First and foremost PRAY- Pray for the victims. So many people are hurting and suffering loss. We need to lift them up and remember them.

If possible donate to an organization that is on the ground and in a position to help. Compassion International has set up a Disaster and Stability Relief Fund page. Here you can find out more ways that you can help children and families picking up the pieces. You can also click down below.
