At the National Council of Churches in the Philippines compound, its clean-up day.

Unlike most of the Metro and the rest of the country, the Council was spared heavy damage needing only minor building repair. As of this writing, power is still cut off due to a huge tree branch that fell on the electrical wires causing the transformer outside the gate to trip and explode.

I am thankful that Typhoon NESAT (Pedring) spared the Council from damage. Still, the country is suffering from the destruction brought by strong winds and floods. I encourage everyone to pray for the victims of this latest tragedy and if you are able, please do help through the many institutions and organizations helping those in need. You can also contact the Council at (0632) 922 8141 for info regarding its Relief and Rehabilitation efforts. - the library staff
