The Philippines, specifically some portions of Mindanao, has been struck by a series of earthquakes these past few months. Of these earthquakes, the one that hit recently was the strongest. According to the report in Independent, US Geological Survey said the quake’s depth was 28.2km and was centered 38 miles southwest of Davao. All the cities and provinces near the quake’s epicenter felt the intense shaking. And while everyone was fleeing in panic from collapsed buildings and damaged homes, one man chose to be still.

Another man also recognized the tricycle driver. He commented, “We were able to ride his tricycle last week with my classmate… then, while we were traveling towards SM, he shared with us about the Bible.”
Nicole Is A Man Of God
Nicole is a man of God who boldly shares the Gospel to everyone he meets. He is not just an ordinary tricycle driver, but a driver who is bringing God’s mission and purpose with him.
