From Grant Aldridge:
Please pray for those in our Banilad Blessed Hope Christian Fellowship Church where Pastor Jonathan Navacilla is the pastor. There has just been an earthquake and there is damage to the church building. Photos sent show damage to Jonathan and Flor’s living quarters. Give thanks that no one was hurt.
An update from Pastor Jonathan Navacilla
The building now is not safe… We are still having aftershocks…
The firewall and most of the walls cracked… The quake lasted for 3 minutes… 7.2 magnitude…
Please continue to pray for Pastor Jonathan, his family and his church members.
Pastor Jonathan reports:
that our church in Loay, on the island of Bohol has also been affected by the earthquake. Please include Pastor Eden Pallo and his congregation in your prayers.
