Many have asked how we faired during the recent Typhoon Yolanda.
Davao was not affected by it but those north of us on Samar, Cebu and many other islands were. Please keep praying for the Philippines.
There are estimates of 10,000 or more dead.
Thankful that relief aid is coming to this devastated area

Tacloban, Philippines (CNN) -- No food. No water. Houses and buildings torn to pieces. Bodies scattered on the streets. Hospitals overrun with patients. Medical supplies running out.
As Typhoon Haiyan barreled across the South China Sea on Sunday, getting set to bring more destruction to Vietnam, many Filipinos grappled with devastation on a level they'd never seen before.
The Philippine Red Cross estimated at least 1,200 people were killed by Haiyan, but the full death toll could be significantly higher as officials make their way to remote, nearly inaccessible places pummeled by the storm.
Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez told CNN it is "entirely possible" that 10,000 people may have died in the storm in Leyte province.
"People here were convinced that it looked like a tsunami," Romualdez told CNN.
