..From the Heart!
Daries from my Fellowship in Germany!
During the last weekend of September, the World witness catastrophic floods in the Philippines rendering hundreds of people homeless and many killed. At least one town was completely under water. Power has been cut off to parts of the capital, Manila, where hundreds of people were trapped on rooftops.
The equivalent of a whole month's rain fell in six hours as Tropical Storm Ketsana, also known as Ondoy, lashed the island of Luzon, causing the worst flooding in Manila for 20 years.
We watched this sad news over over CNN (the only English News Channel) together with Denis, our co-fellow from the Philippines whose Family was affected. We Prayed for her and for the safety of her family members and i was inspired by the support of the fellows and the D&F to Denis but then personally something else was on my mind... CLIMATE CHANGE!!
Could this be an impact of Climate Change? This crisis happened after the UN Climate Change Summit in New York (SEPT.22ND)and hopefully the Government of the world will "seal the Deal" in COPENHAGEN!!
I wish Denis's Family and other Affected people quick recovery and let us remember that we live in one global world and we have a shared Responsibility and Accountability..Please support the victims/survivors of the Floods in PHILIPINES and GO GREEN!
