Peace in the Midst of the Storm
As many of you know, Antigua was graciously spared from the eye of hurricane Irma passing through. Instead of the 180 mph winds predicted we received 50-75 mph. Instead of the 10″ of rain we only received 2.5″. Your prayers were answered!
Although Antigua was spared, our sister island, Barbuda, was devastated. Pray for 1500-2000 people who are being evacuated before Jose hits.
Tomorrow, hurricane Jose is forecast to pass about 100 miles to our north. If it holds true we will experience tropical storm force winds; but if the storm steers south, we could see something stronger. So please be praying about Jose!
Your outpouring of love, concern, and prayers astounded us! God gave us peace even in the midst of the storm.
