Thank you for your effectual prayer. The LORD heard the voice of His people and the storm did much less than any were bracing for. A lot of people were in fear here with some leaving this neighborhood, because all remember this area during Mitch. The LORD was in control and gave us a calm of spirit and we never needed to. I even told Carlos and our landlord who offered his truck, we will not need to evacuate this time. If the Lord had given us anxiety about it all we would have done so in a heartbeat. There were at least 11 lost due to this storm close to the landfall on the northern coast. That’s much less than the 11,000 dead plus 8,000 missing during the last cat 5 storm to hit here. We will continue to watch the river, but now it is not expected it to crest above the limits.
What did the children do during the storm?….Read the books Lisa mailed. The worse thing now is prices of things will go up for a while, but we weathered the storm fine. Lisa is due back in a week, and Sasha is in college. AAmen.
Isaiah 4:6
And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
Thank you all again,
