Below is a short video report on the situation facing our Center for Digital Evangelism in the Philippines. It is located just 20 miles from the Taal volcano that erupted earlier this week.
You have probably seen the devastation in the news reports as the eruptions continue, but thankfully, the air quality has improved in the area where the center is located, and our young people are being allowed to return to work.
I wish I could tell you this is the only upheaval in the world, but we know that “the whole creation has been groaning” under the weight of sin. However, in the midst of the hopelessness and despair that we see all around us, we have an opportunity to bring hope as we share the good news that one day soon, “Creation itself will be set free from its bondage of decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.” (Romans 8:21, 22)
What a glorious day that will be!
