|dark moody sky by barefoot cay|
we went to french harbour this morning (i stayed in the car resting my achilles tendon, fear not) as we were driving home the skies got fiercely dark and moody and soon the rain was falling so heavy it was difficult to see while driving.
|these boys were so happy to get a ride!|
that was just a little taste of what is to come. the rains have stopped, for now. we are as ready as we can be.. extra water, food in the cupboards, lots of batteries, and candles, new tigo stick, phone cards are full, gutters are cleaned out (thanks to carlos!) i am a tiny bit worried about my new little plants.. i hope they don't drown!
but my big concern is for the people who live up in the colonias. it is very hilly up there and many people have built make shift houses. with the threat of flash floods i pray they will be safe. will you join me? also all the people who live in dixon cove have alot of trouble with flooding. last storm they were evacuated to the church in french harbour for the night. please pray for them.
we handed out food and sheets to people in hopes that at least they will be fed and warmer. bob went to hottest sparrow yesterday. thanks to those of you who sent money for food. we were able to get rice, beans, lard, flour, and sugar to give out to many families. i sent carlos home with extra food and a couple of old blankets from the house. he was so grateful you'd think i had just got him a complete 'bed in the bag' instead of a bunch of old hand me downs. they are so appreciative here. makes giving easy.
