Philippine Salvation Army family awaits news of 20 missing relatives
She’s witnessed some of the devastation and has been a good source for personal stories of those around her. Major Manhardt shared this tragic story of a Philippine Salvation Army family on her Facebook page today.
A fellow training college staffer, Captain Charity Doblon along with her brother Cadet Rene Doblon (officer in training) made a list of all the members of their family who have been unaccounted-for since Typhoon Haiyan devastated parts of the Philippines late last week.
Please keep this family in your prayers – and the many others – who are anxiously awaiting word that their family members are safe.
Though transportation is a challenge, The Salvation Army has prepared seven tons of rice and canned goods to distribute in the hard-hit areas. They’re also working to secure generators, satellite phones and medicines to aid in the relief effort.
