FACT: One Nation, One Heart for Maring Victims

Korean singer-actor Jang Keun Suk (@AsiaPrince_JKS) shared, via the Twitter account (@JangKeunSukPH), a photo of their idol holding a placard that says: "Don't give up Philippines. Be safe."

So many times we want to give more to those that need help. We might think that giving only comes in the form of cash donations. This is not true; you can give by helping others. Everyone can give something whether it is time, money or some other way of helping others. Helping others includes the times when you visit the sick, run errands for someone who is unable or even when you just offer your umbrella to someone on a rainy day.

Please pray for our country Philippines:
To those who are in need and victims of the Tropical Storm Maring, may God give you a strong heart, mind and soul that in every situation, God will always send a helping hand.

To those who are safe and staying with their families in their homes, may God grant you a softer heart in extending peace and serenity to those who are in need. 

And to those who are volunteers and continuously sharing their 3T's (proud SFC; 3T means = time, talent, treasure), may God pour you with a cleaner soul, purer heart, and a better health, to show to others, that anyone can do what you are currently doing.

We have this kind of nature-challenge every year, but it’s still hard to be prepared especially if its our Mother Nature who’s having the call. But I know, and we know, as always … Filipinos will pass this test.

I hope and pray for a brighter tomorrow.
