It really scares me that Typhoon Glenda is said to be as strong as the very destructive Yolanda last year. Even Kuya Kim Atienza mentioned about it yesterday on "It's Showtime".

I just hope that Typhoon Glenda won't be as strong as our faith in the Lord Almighty, and not as powerful as our prayer.

Let's continue to pray for everyone's safety, and that we be spared from any threats of Typhoon Glenda.

The Philippines doesn't another Yolanda. Please....go away Glenda!
