"Let's continue to pray for those who were injured and the strength of each town/city that now has to deal with the aftermath (sad). ...Praying for everyone's safety after the earth quake that hit Bohol and Cebu :( quite saddening to see beautiful churches crumble down."
"If only corrupt public officials would share even just 1/8 of their wealth to our kababayan who have suffered from disaster, poverty, & war..Millions of Filipinos won't suffer anymore.. #HelpCebuandBohol."

"Prayers to everyone in bohol...keep the faith."
As God is my witness, I have been crying while monitoring the news back home... Visayas and Mindanao have always been so good & loving to me, and are both dear to my heart... Cebu and I have had a "love affair" since I was just starting out... And Cebuanos hold a very special place in my heart... You will all overcome, my beloved Cebu, my Bohol -- my Visayas & Mindanao... If only I could hold you in my arms & tell you that you will recover & will do so wonderfully... And that you are all in my heart... I love you very much... Please be strong... God be with you all...
"To those affected by the earthquake down south God bless you all.
Lets all pray for our kababayans who are affected by the earthquake. God bless us!"
"My heart goes out to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy... #PrayforVisayas."
"Lord Jesus, please let your Spirit hover around our nation to comfort those desperate & feeling hopeless by all that has been happening!"
