Philippines Flood Disaster
flagNovember 10, 2013
Super Typhoon Haiyan Hits the Philippines
Bringing Death to Over 10,000

We desperately need your prayers and financial support to help the victims of the Philippines. The Chicago Tribune reported [November 10, 2013]:

TACLOBAN — Rescue workers were struggling on Sunday to reach survivors of a powerful typhoon that killed an estimated 10,000 people and displaced more than 600,000 in the central Philippines.

The United Nations said some survivors had no food, water or medicine. Relief operations were hampered because roads, airports and bridges had been destroyed or were covered in wreckage, it said.

Super typhoon Haiyan destroyed about 70 to 80 percent of structures in its path as it tore through Leyte province on Friday, said police chief superintendent Elmer Soria. After weakening, the storm headed west towards Vietnam.

Huge waves from one of the strongest storms ever recorded swept away coastal villages. Some officials likened the destruction to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

"From a helicopter, you can see the extent of devastation. From the shore and moving a kilometer inland, there are no structures standing. It was like a tsunami," said Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas, who was in Tacloban, Leyte's capital, before the typhoon struck.

"I don't know how to describe what I saw. It's horrific."

The Philippines government and disaster agency have not confirmed the latest estimate of the number of deaths from the storm, whose sustained winds reached 195 miles per hour [313 km per hour] with gusts of up to 235 mph.

Soria, quoting local officials, said the estimated death toll so far was 10,000. That could climb once rescuers reach remote villages along the coast.

Nearly 620,000 people were displaced and 9.5 million "affected" across nine regions, the U.N.'s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs [OCHA] said in a statement. Local officials observed one mass grave of between 300 to 500 bodies in one area of Tacloban alone, it added.

About 300 people died in neighboring Samar province, said an official of the provincial disaster agency. Across Tacloban, men, women and children walked carefully over splintered remains of wooden houses, searching for missing loved ones and belongings. Not one building seems to have escaped damage in the coastal city of 220,000 people, about 580 km [360 miles] southeast of Manila. Witnesses and officials described chaotic scenes. The city and nearby villages were flooded, leaving floating bodies and roads choked with debris from fallen trees, tangled power lines and flattened homes.

Survivors queued in lines, waiting for handouts of rice and water. Some sat and stared, covering their faces with rags to keep out the smell of the dead from one of the worst disasters to hit the typhoon-prone Southeast Asian nation.

One woman, eight months pregnant, described through tears how her 11 family members had vanished, including two daughters. "I can't think right now," she said. "I am overwhelmed."

SOLF supports a large number of people in the Philippines through our Asian Outreach but this type of devastation requires that as many as possible chip in to assist. Will you pray for our Filipino brethren, orphans and widows?

A Greeting From Her Grace
by Bishop Dr. Valli Y. Walton

Senior Pastor and International Overseer SOLF USA and SOLM Churches and Ministries International God bless you more abundantly is my continuing prayer for you. I am taking this opportunity to publically say, Thank you all for being there for me and the SOLF Church Family for 13 beautiful years. Although 2010 was a year of new endeavors and a true walk of faith for us as we moved our local Bronx, New York Church to Westchester County. Yet, I have no regrets because we did it God's way, i.e., at His directive.

The Spirit Of Life Fellowship ministry is expanding its outreach with a greater impact at this time in Pakistan and East Africa [Kenya and Uganda]. Pastors are pleading for me to come and provide leadership training at their Churches. My Indian brethren are in touch with me almost daily. Both adults and children are praying fervently! We are seeing good results.

The need among the orphans and widows is great and I thank God for the wonderful way He is helping SOLF to provide periodic benevolence to assist the poor. The financial gifts of our faithful partners is making it possible to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, pay for medicines, vitamins, first aid items and personal care products. SOLF's Random Benevolence Pool Program is an effective means of distributing finances where most needed.

Our Media Ministry is providing Holy Bibles, tracts, books, devotionals, pens and pencils for Churches, Literature Outreach Ministries, Social Welfare Agencies and Missionaries on the move. The tracts are currently printed in English, Telugu and Hindi. Our Apostle Ralph Eze's books on Spiritual Warfare are now printed in both English and Swahili.

We never cease to remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem! As a matter of fact, SOLF is now a supporter [with Membership] of Christians United For Israel working under the direction of renown Founder and Chairman, Pastor John Hagee of Arlington, Texas.

2011 will be a year of abundance for the obedient! Arise and Behold...
