I’ll post more soon, but please pray now if you see this.
Our neighborhood is flooding rapidly. The neighbors woke us up a little before 7am this morning, as the water was about two feet over the road and 3 or 4 in their low-lying community.
For the past couple of hours, the neighborhood has been working to bring valuables into our property–the only dry area on the street. The young children have retreated into our house, and a mother with her seventh child–just five days old.
I’ve got rice, beans, and noodles cooking; some co-workers are on the way to bring more rice for today.
Please just pray with us for the rain to stop and waters to go down. It has continued to rise and is creeping into our driveway. Pray for wisdom for us as we try to maintain some level of sanity in a very, very full house. And please pray for their homes, lives, and the months of costly repairs that are ahead.
More to come when I get some food ready.
