Rammasun is the strongest typhoon to landfall in the Philippines since Super Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the central Philippines eight months ago. The eyewall of Rammasun is staying north of the area devastated from Super Typhoon Haiyan, including the city of Tacloban… Over 2,100 people, many of whom still living in tents after Haiyan, were evacuated to the Tacloban Astrodome, given the wind forecast.
By Pastor Glem Melo
Life is hard and painful — that is true! — but we are never without comfort and hope. In all our pains and sufferings, the Bible tells us to look up and cry out to our Creator and Savior, to the One who sent His Son to pay for sins and redeem His sinful creatures. To us, undeserving sinners, our infinitely merciful God offers forgiveness, salvation and covenant provisions. And it’s all because of Christ’s death and sacrifice for us on the cross of Calvary!
