Update

Hello all!
As some of you know...and many of you do NOT know...my hometown and most of the surrounding towns were flooded terribly thanks to the rains from Hurricane Lee this past week. 10" fell at my house in a 24 hour period.  I live on top of a mountain, so my home was not flooded, however most of our friends and neighbors were. The losses are staggering...a week later and many places still have no electric or potable water..many homes have been condemed. Almost 2/3 of the children in the school my children attend have been displaced by the flood waters many will be homeless.  Being a small, poor, rural community the vastness of this disaster has been overwhelming. Roads and bridges are gone. Home have washed down the river. Even our closest city was flooded severly! Many businesses will NEVER recover. We are all helping in the cleanup and trying to be sure people are clothed and fed. The community has come together in an amazing and uplifting way, but we still need your prayers!   When thing calm down a bit I will fill you all in on how things are going. I will post again soon I promise!
