Earthquake in Visayas :'(

Magnitude 6.9 earthquake hit the island of Visayas, Philippines particularly Negros with the biggest destructions in Negros Oriental. 

I came home from work with no idea at all that this horrendous quake invaded our province yesterday, until my friend rang and told me. I didn't expect that the earthquake was so bad until I saw some photos in facebook of the destructions it caused; like cracked roads, collapsed bridges, houses broken, and people reported missing and dead.
My heart was thumping, I was so worried and daunted of my family's safety. I checked my facebook account but nobody left me any messages to say they are alright. And the first thing that came in my mind was to say a little prayer for my them. It's awesome what a power of prayer can do. :) Although I was so worried, there's nothing I can do but to trust everything in my merciful GOD. I slept trusting my family's safety to the Lord and hoping that when I wake up I'll be worry free knowing that my family are in good hand.
And Ola! GOD never fails..as always :). I had messages in my wall from my sisters that they are all safe and nothing for me to worry about. What a relief! Praise the Lord! (Big big smile)
But of course I knowing that they are alright isn't enough for me, i need to hear their voices for satisfaction I suppose (wink). Good thing my nieces are online as classes were suspended Tuesday, so I was able to talk to my sister via Skype. And she told me their daunting experienced.
I rang my Mama as well using my Skype credit  and she told me everything they've been through.
@ 8;00 pm they decided to evacuate as all people living near the shore were advised to move in higher places as Tsunami alert was reported. And so now they have to run for their lives and lives of our little ones (nieces and nephews). All people were shocked and scared as the quake was really strong plus the tsunami alert. Mama said it's like they're in a war running to hide for their lives. People running around and panicking. They are still having aftershock time to time but they are all alright now. Thank GOD for that! I hope and pray that this will be over soon. Lets keep praying for the lives that were lost and people who were affected by the calamity.
For all the people in Visayas, for all Bisaya, Cebuanos and Ilonggos let us all pray together, be of help and strength to each other in this trying time, we can all do it..because GOD said;

" Do not fear; I will help you. I will be with you in trouble.--I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.--I WILL BE WITH YOU.  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you; never will I forsake you. --Surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age... DO NOT BE AFRAID.
