Torrential Rains Hit Haiti!
Sun was shining when we went to church this morning. Then about 3:30PM without any warning, the heavens opened up and rain started pouring down! It started so fast that by the time I put my laptop on the couch and got up to shut the window, the floor was running with rain water. I then hurried in and shut the boys bedroom window and my bedroom window. My curtains were soaked by the time I shut the window.
Within minutes the main road outside the orphanage was a river with water running down it! Steeve, Mark, and the neighborhood kids had gone to the water falls and I was scared of flash flooding because within seconds that ravine can have water moving so fast through it that there are waves rolling boulders down the ravine!
Thankfully, they had left the ravine but by the time they got here they were all soaking wet! Can you feature what it must have been like down in a tent city?
Now at 7:30PM, it is pouring down rain again along with lightening and thunder this time! As hard as it is raining and the wind is blowing, I know tents have to be falling down!
Please be praying for everyone living in tents and outside in this deluge!
