Irma was a category 5 hurricane, the strongest one to hit the Caribbean in 100 years.
|We live just east of Cap Haitian right beside the coast.|
So on Tuesday we asked you to pray for us and for Haiti. We asked you to pray that the storm would move north away from Haiti's coastline. We know of people in Northern Ireland, in Canada and in the US who were praying. And God answered.
|This is last Wednesday after a heavy downpour...a natural river has formed which the kids took great advantage of!|
|The grass behind Joel is the same spot after an afternoon of Hurricane Irma...|
We do not yet know the effects in the city centre, which floods almost every time we have heavy rain, or further along the coast closer to the DR. But what we do know is that Haiti did not get the battering which she was expecting. God had his hand over Haiti yesterday and what we were experiencing was a miracle.
Thank you for your prayers, had hurricane Irma hit Haiti with the force it was predicted to, I'm sure most of the north coast of Haiti would have been destroyed.
Let us take a moment to say thank you to God for his answer to the prayers of many people. Let us also continue to pray for those who have been devastated by this hurricane and for those whom it will hit over the next few days.
