Video of Damage to the Apartment and an Update

Hello here is a video of the damage done to our apartment. Please keep in mind that I was in shock at the time of taking this so my commentary is a little all over the place. After you watch, remember to read on for updates on us.

John is on his way to the village and base as I type. He will take footage of the damage there and we will post it soon. The past few days have been a blur of cleaning. If I never have to do another load of laundry again, I’d be ok with that. Everything that could be washed, needed to be washed.

I’m doing just fine. I’ve been healing nicely despite the fact that I have not been taking it easy. Thank you Lord. We only have one week from today before we host our next team. I will not be doing much with this team except enjoying their company. It’s our home church from Arizona so we are very excited to see them.

Please be in prayer about Tropical Storm Tomas: If this Hurricane hits us, it will be worse than what we have just experienced. We know that God is in control, but we are called to pray as Christians, so please join us.

Ellis is doing great. Such a sweet and cuddly little baby. Evangeline is slowly getting over her jealousy, she basically ignores Ellis.

This blog is so random! I’m sorry! It’s just the way my brain is working. Thank you for praying!

    Mel, I know it was hard for you but we so appreciate you giving us a video tour. We are praying as you recover from this hurricane and brace for the next one. Wish we could be there with you to help with the clean-up.

    Your poor dears, what a disaster! God is good, you are all safe and together. I’m so sorry you have to deal with all of this after just having a baby. I think God knew you were strong enough to handle all this or He would not have led you to Belize, knowing what was to come. You are such an inspiration to me and to so many. You lead by example and that’s a rare quality. God will bless you for your sacrifices and long-suffering. We love you all so much and pray that your health will be sustained as you pick up the pieces.
