(Worthy News) – Impoverished Christians were among those whose homes were destroyed as Typhoon Rai, known locally as Odette, killed at least 75 people in the Philippines, Worthy News learned Sunday.
“I feel so shy about this, but we really need help…All are damaged due to super Typhoon Odette,” Emely Laga, a devoted Christian and married mother of two, told Worthy News.
The 35-year-old Christian worker and her husband live in the hard-hit central island province of Bohol, where most people died, and rescue operations continued. “There is no water, no food, no electricity. All we need this time is water and food and especially prayer for all the people in Bohol,” she stressed.
