" Typhoon Ondoy"

This photo was taken on the same day typhoon "Ondoy" visit metro manila.A house is on fire few blocks away from my house.

It was early morning Saturday September 26, 2009 i am worried already because of continuous heavy rain outside .At 10:00 am nearby streets and other barangays were already flooded. I decide not to go work, there is no point on going because my house is near makati and my work is in alabang.The news said that osmenia high way is under water.But it never stop there by 12:00 pm me and my family was terrified to know that there is a house on fire few blocks away from where i am living.That time we don't now what to do and where to go because if we turn right there is fire and if we turn left all we can see is water.I was not only scared for my life but also for my two kids and my parents life.That day is one of my unforgettable moment, for some reason my car wouldn't start the kids is already inside the car and my parents is still in the house. I don't have a choice but to choose to go into the water if worst comes to worst, rather than going to the direction where house on fire is located.So, my car wouldn't start! but i start to pray and ask God  for his protection.I remember verse in the bible Psalm 91;15 "He shall call upon me, and i will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him;" God is good and he answers prayers.There is a nearby volunteer fire station they are the first one to came to put out the  fire.It took 30-40 min for other fire trucks to come because of  flood, it is very difficult for them to get through. End of  that day i was very thankful that we are all safe and our house is still standing...
