Our Filipino friends have taught me so much about rejoicing in trials and being content with what we have.
As you know, a typhoon went through Manila on Saturday. It was the worst rains they've had in 40 years. There has been much flooding, loss of possessions, home, life.
Today, the administrator from Faith Manila campus sent an update on how they all are fairing up there. He included this quote from a Filipino colleague when asked by her supervisor how she was doing.
"We are fine sir. Our appliances are floating around the house downstairs. I went to my sisters place and it was the same. The good thing is, there are plenty of fish to catch!"
This demonstrates the tremendous Filipino spirit which I admire so much.
