Many victims in coastal towns slept as she flashed into their homes at high tide,
washing them, and their entire villages out to sea.
Mass burials are being organized,
and relief for tens of thousands of people in need of clean water, food and medicines.
Is God really still in control?
We believe He is.
Even the winds and the waves obey His voice.
But please be praying for those who are facing
a Christmas to forget.
People who have lost loved ones,
homes, whole villages,
everything they ever held dear on this earth.
Then hold those you love dearly a little closer this Christmas.
And give thanks...
