Manila's Christians use Facebook for Disaster Reports

It seems strange that we were in Manila and yet saw no floods. But, then again, Manila is a large city. International news can be a strange beast. I remember when when we were in in Indonesia in 1993. Reports came through about fires near Sydney and that "Sydney had been evacuated."!!! The whole of Sydney - NO! We laughed at the notion. While in Manila, though we didn't see much evidence of flooding where we were (though it had been flooded in the hotel we were in), we met people who had closer to first-hand experience. One of the Filipino ladies at our course wrote this blog post for Christianity Today. It is good to read something not written for mass publication by professional journalists whose integrity you question.
