Big Birds

For the past three days, the military has had a couple of helicopters in the skies over Bontoc. Rumor has it there has been some rebel activity in the area on the other side of the mountain. Both graduation ceremonies of the past few days have had times where hearing the commencement speaker is difficult over the thumping of the helicopter rotors.

Today, we saw the helicopters land, exchange soldiers and take off again. We are reminded that there is unrest in this country. Please pray for peaceful resolution and the safety of all involved: whether by choice, profession, or home address.

  1. I can imagine that would be unnerving. There is unrest in your home country as well, though in a different way. Praying for you, the Philippines and the US which seems less and less like the country I love each day.
