    Typhoon in Asia

    Sorry, Brother Carlos. I'm quite new here and I kinda of ramble on and went off topic. Thanks for your kind assistance. Adios and have a nice day, trying to corral back some folks who tend to wander off, any which way. Good day to you and your fine team of industrious administrators.

    Typhoon in Asia

    I see Baltimoresun.com spelt it as swath. What a relief. Sorry I just found out that I was misinformed. West Maryland may have to experience the devastating remnants of Florence. I know absolutely nothing of Maryland except that I had googled the map of the Eastern states while reading the autobiographies of Abraham Lincoln (Fred Kaplan and Doris Kearns Goodwin) Good day to you. Stay safe.

    Typhoon in Asia

    Here in Malaysia where we have never experienced a typhoon (Asia's equivalent of hurricane) I feel so scared looking at what is happening in Philippines, Hong Kong and Southern China. I have read that Philippines have more than 20 typhoons a year, 5 of which are destructive. I have been to Manila and have seen a family with young children sleeping in front of shophouses. The parents would pull out a double mattress for the whole family to sleep on, with no defences to protect them from the elements. One who imagine what happens to such families when a typhoon hits that sprawling metropolis. The realities would be too horrendous to contemplate. It is an image that still haunts me after all these years and I'm truly grateful for having a house to stay in. A lot of people do not even have that luxury, sleeping on 5 foot way or under the bridge (shudder) Sorry I didn't even know the correct spelling for swathe! Earthquake in the island of Lombok, Indonesia Last Friday, I was robbed while walking from the bus stop to my house, 400 m away. I was so traumatised by the incident, even though it is the 4th time I have been a victim of snatch thieves. But all this pales in significance to the suffering that others suffered during natural diasasters. Unless one personally experienced the tragedy, it is hard to imagine the horrors and fright that stays with them for the rest of their lives. I got my first experience of a earthquake while on holiday alone in Brastagi, Indonesia. One local sister invited me to stay one night in her wooden house. While out buying steamed corn on the roadside, the ground started shaking violently. I was shaken to the core. Still I had the presence of mind to tell the lady that I wanted to cancel my order. Truly, a earth shattering experience. (Malaysia does not lie in that Pacific Ring of Fire) Fearful events are happening as the end draws near. Yes, a sign of the times. Let us cleave closer to Jehovah, our Grand creator and to each other. May we be a source of comfort and support to each other during these trying times. (Actually, the reason I replied to your post was because I haven't commented for a while now and I was warned I might be bumped off this site for being inactive. Now I seem to have overstayed my welcome on this thread. So don't indulge me by answering. Thank you for taking the time to reply. It meant a lot to me.😍 Glad to know the tropical depression decided to bypass Maryland. Thanks be to God for small mercies. Warm regards and stay strong. Anne

    Post a picture... Any picture

    Such vivid colors. Could almost feel myself back again in the Grampians national park. Was there in April 2017. Three days wasn't enough to do the place justice. Definitely, a foregleam of paradise. Envy you.
  5. Thanks Brother Tim and Sister Denise for your kind words. I'm feeling so right at home already on this forum. Good day to you both. Sister Anne from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. (Miki is my dog)
  6. Haha, newbie here, just found out that AM is short for Annual meeting. Had to google that up. Silly me. Maybe I'm so far away from the States, information tend to trickle down more slowly. Quite excited about the video about the GB that we will be discussing this week. I had better get myself more acquainted with the various acronyms. Anyway thanks bro for that cool bit of information. GG = Good going. I think I'm going overboard.
