The current events seem to be about natural disasters lately! Today, we learned about a volcano that erupted about 40 miles south of the Philippine capital of Manilla. About 82,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes. Many people are now homeless, but many people still haven't evacuated for fear of leaving behind their farm and livestock. The volcano, Taal, still shows a lot of activity and could erupt for weeks or months to come. The people are in need of food, water, shelter, and our good thoughts!
