We are safe, however, took a hard personal hit from the storm. Here is what happened:
Village: Roofs were torn off houses and a couple of houses are destroyed. We will need a couple of teams to come down and rebuild these houses.
The base: Everything is soaked! We have a busted window in the lodge. Also, our concrete path is damaged, our huge water containers have been blown off the buildings, and we are sure that our house is full of wet clothing.
WE WILL UPDATE MORE ON THE VILLAGE AND BASE AFTER JOHN GOES THEIR TO SEE FOR HIMSELF.
Our Apartment: Our apartment was devastated by the storm. We returned today to find an apartment that was flooded with four feet of water and now has an inch thick of sludge. It will take days to clean and we lost many of our appliances and food. All of our appliances were high (or so we thought) but the water was so strong it knocked them down. This is especially difficult for us because I can not help clean because of the c-section and the babies and John can not do it by himself. We are currently working out a plan.
Please pray for us. This is a really stressful time right now, as John has to take care of the base, the apartment, and our family. I cried, I will be honest. God is taking care of us and we are so thankful for His hand of protection on us and the villagers and base. Praise you Lord through this storm!
Many people ask what can be done at a time like this. We honestly need funding for the base, the village, and for our personal items that were lost in the storm. If you would like to help with either of these things, please contact us via the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or e-mail us through this blog in the “contact us” section on the right side.
Thank you for your continued prayers! We love you all!
