07 Oct 2016 Hurricane Matthew update – Oct 7
Update – Friday Oct 7, 2016 – Grand Goave, Haiti
Well our compound came through the hurricane with flying colours but our village of Little Paradise has been devastated. So many now are either homeless or have had all belongings washed out to sea and after cleaning out the mud sit alone in their empty shell. Our hearts are broken for them and wish we could do more as one after another comes to ask for help. We give them some food and a promise to do what we can. The job ahead is overwhelming for us, but not for God, and we are trusting in Him.
Our flights have been cancelled once again and Thanksgiving with our family is not possible. For now we hope to be on a plane Monday but need to leave here 3:00am to be first in line at the airport.
As I write this text I hear the people gathered in the church, voices raised in praise to God, singing ‘How Great Thou Art’
It humbles me.
