The Philippines?

Islands of disasters and Troubles!

The history of this island archipelago is that of sadness from conflicts to natural disasters, from dictatorships to epidemics and President Duterte?

The people are perhaps some of the most resilient on the planet or so it would seem, but one is sure that the pains of loss never really go away and suffering probably continues in silence?

The islands are plighted with on going terrorism in the southern islands of Mindanao and Jolo and the threat to Manilla is always there despite U.S. troops being in the country! The war on the drug cartels continue, despite some injustices but before Mr. Duterte came to office the situation was way out of hand and effected nearly every family?

Religious faith in great in this nation, it keeps many going! But to know the Lord as your personal Saviour is even more important to encourage believers to push and press on with education and science to improve their nation with innovation?

Meanwhile the Philippines needs our prayers also, especially when it is out of the media headlines!

Twenty-Nineteen?

What to Expect!

Going by the years that have gone past in our individual lives, about the same? We all do hope of better things, peace, prosperity, love, kindness and much more that is good and beneficial in many ways!

But we also have to face the many realities of life and that is of disasters and death, that must come to all of us eventually! 

The New Year 2019 also brings us opportunities in relation to where we stand with God today in our lives, the possibility of New Things and also of Salvation in the full assurances that Jesus will forgive us and save us from our failings!
