Teen voices from the Philippines

Sunday School students share their meaningful ideas and healings.

Last October 2009, a strong typhoon hit our region. At that time my father and I were gathering vegetables from our garden to sell. We continued our work even when the rain and wind were very strong. When we were on our way home, the road looked like a river, but we did not panic. I stopped the truck and prayed this way: “God is protecting us.” The rain became weak for a moment, and we continued to travel. But there was a road slide, so we could not proceed. We decided to go back, but there was another slide. My father got out of the truck and went to knock on the door of a house near the road, for we needed some food (we were very hungry) and a place to sleep. I am very thankful that the house owner welcomed us. I am very grateful we were safe during that typhoon.

When I graduated from elementary school, I thought I could not continue to high school because I had no money for it. But I remembered what I had learned in Christian Science, that divine Love supplies all human needs and this meant my need, too. I just kept on declaring this simple truth that I had learned; I did not give up. Then, a Christian Scientist who knew of my situation told me that he would help me with my high school educational needs. I am very grateful to God, who really supplies our need when we are obedient to His laws.
