Flooding in Luzon, Philippines

2011 Photos of Housing Areas Near Santa Rosa, Laguna
We were in this area last year in February working with Light of the World Mission Philippines on the first leg of our mission trip to Luzon, Philippines.
This is the backside of one of the many housing settlements.

This is their church which you will see was flooded with waist high water.

That’s me. Fortunately, not standing in flood waters.

It rained and flooded this same area we were in last year.

This is Pastor Marvin showing how high the water came in the church.

It is amazing how resilient the Filipino people are who live through the regular monsoon floods by helping each other with food, clothing, man power for the massive clean up, and moral support.

Welcome Everyone!

Glad to see folks from the Philippines reading my blog!  You will be able to read about some of my experiences as a missionary in Northern Luzon- in Dagupan, Lingayen, Binalonan,  San Pablo, Urdanetta, Calasiao, and other places.

Although my ‘liz au’ Facebook account is still active, I’ll be posting here and not on  my ‘Sounding the Shofar’  Facebook group anymore.  With this blog you  can choose what you want to read from the category list.  I will be able to write on different topics, and I hope that you will feel free to use the comment section.  Hope to hear from you!  Shalom!
