As some of you may have already heard, there’s been reports of a terrorist attack on Marawi, a city in one of the Philippines’ major island groups, Mindanao. All roads leading in and out of the city have been blocked by trucks. Hospitals are being burned, teachers are being beheaded and put on display, and prisoners are being freed. So far, our president’s declared martial law in Mindanao as a way to alleviate the problem, but we are still very, very afraid given the history of our country and martial law.
If you can, please include my country in your prayers; and for those of you who don’t pray, please spread the word. Not enough coverage is being provided for this news, and any voice will greatly help the people in danger.
