Phillipines Typhoon...please pray-Letter from Carl

Dear prayer partners and friends

Please pray about the following items.

-Typhoon Mitag is pounding us already. Supposedly it was two typhoons which joined together as one big slow moving typhoon. We are supposed to be in its way for the next five days and it has already arrived with a fury. Please keep us in your prayers. Pray that it does not park over us and dump rain and subject us to high winds here on the northern part of Luzon Island. This typhoon has over 100 mile an hour winds, which is a disaster for poor people in the Philippines who do not have strong or secure homes. Lord willing our home is secure but we could end up without electricity, water and the ability to get around, etc.. for long periods of time. We do not want this to delay Celina's and the boys return.

-Also pray for us as we have some very important ministry decisions to make which could change the future of our ministry in the Philippines. Pray for us to have wisdom and stay in the center of God's will! We do not want to miss opportunities nor do we want to take on anything that will distract or hinder our ministry or family relations.

-Pray for Celina's return to the Philippines. After her stay in the states it must feel a little bit like volunteering to go back to an episode of Survivor. She is courageous and a fighter but it is always much harder on her than for us men. Pray for her to have God's grace to strengthen and protect her. Pray for our family to flourish!

-Also pray about the terrorist activities in the Philippines, we have been subject to a whole series of bombing attacks in Manila (killing congressmen and going off in shoping malls, etc.) and of course the troubles with Abu Siyaf (jihadist) in the south and New Peoples Army (communist guerrillas) all over. The Philippine's Army has stopped all offensive operations against these elements until this typhoon passes in order to have troops for relief and rescue operations. This of course will allow many dissidents to escape and resurface in other places.

We know the Lord loves this country, we have seen Him pouring out His Spirit on this nation, and we trust that He is working it all together for good but please keep us and this country in your prayers!

Thank you in advance!

In Christ service,
Pastor Carl Henderson
