Michael in the Philippine's Update #12


So completely exhausted. I fell asleep twice today because I physically could not stay awake. Yesterday's deliveries wiped me out. Trying to get to bed early now as we have a busy day tomorrow. We were scouting most of the day, and found a good pocket of 5,000 people in the city who weren't getting enough food. It's a real balancing act because everyone needs aid still, it's just that some have more than others and we have to focus on those who have the least. Craig is leaving on Monday, and there is a rumor that the government will suspend food deliveries on the 2nd of Dec, which if true will create some real problems as most of the city seems to BR dependent on aid in some form. Evacuations have ceased, and children are also supposed to go back to school on the 2nd.

I'm going to have to cut it short tonight for the sake if rest, but just want to say how thankful I am for life, health, friendships and the amazing opportunities I've been blessed with. There isn't anywhere else in the world where I'd rather be right now.
With Andoi and the Bishop of the Tacloban ward. They have picked up on my "Shaka".
This woman in pink is my new friend Army. She washes my clothes, makes my meals and cleans my room everyday so I don't have to worry about those things. Allows me to focus on work. Grateful to her!!
