I am pretty sure that all of you here heard or read already what had happened to my homeland Philippines. Last October 15, at around 8 o'clock in the morning the strongest earthquake happened in my place back home. Before it happened I talked to my mother around 6.30am before I slept. Not knowing that after an hour and half that scary quake will strike on them there.
It is hard to be far away from them but I have to be with my family here in Europe. That is the design of being marriage. So since, we are not in the same zone I was sleeping when it happened. Just saw a text message and a miscall in the next morning about that on-going evacuation down there.
Right there and then, I tried to contact them but I cannot reach them due to all electricity are off. My worries begun to strike and keep on praying and hoping that my family are safe. The only updates I read on is through facebook. Every time I opened and read on updates it is so tragic.
I cried and asked for God's help for protection. That is the only thing I can do, I cannot help them physically but in prayers I can. After three days, I was able to contact them and it feels so good to hear my mom's voice and to hear that they are okey even though still scared.
That was the first strongest earthquake I've ever noticed since when I was small. And for now, still have aftershocks and still hoping that they can manage to control themselves and hoping for a stop with this calamities they are facing now. Hope for the best!
