We started several days ago making the necessary preparations. We have plenty of supplies and last night Patrick and Joshua boarded up all the windows of our beautiful home. As I type, I'm filling up large buckets of water to have on hand. We will be without power. And no power means no water. All 9 of us will most likely flee to a local area since our home is a mobile home. Please pray for our home to be safe, but more importantly for my family to remain safe.
Please pray also for the precious families of VSIBC. Many of them live in mobile homes as well. We have checked on everyone, and all have a safe place to go to. We have the church all boarded up and ready to go, too.
Also, pray for St. Barths. This is the beautiful island that God let us serve on for almost 3 years. There are many pictures here on my blog of this gem. But, St. Barths has been devastated by Irma. Many have lost their homes, including Patrick's Grandmother and many other family members. Pray that God will use this tradegy to turn the people of the island's hearts toward Him.
Thank you for praying! I'll update when I can! God is always good!
