Tuesday Evening Hurricane Felix Update

Our power was off for a couple of hours this afternoon - not the whole city, just our neighborhood. Since it is back on right now, I thought I should take this opportunity for a brief update. The time is 5:45pm, or 7:45pm EDT.

It has been raining here since around 3:30(our time), but not very hard. The temperature has dropped and it is quite pleasantly cool. We had a bit of a breeze as the rain first started, but no real wind, and there's not even a breeze now.

It will be dark in the next hour. Earlier reports showed that the center of the storm should be in our location around dawn tomorrow, but the speed of the storm has slowed, so now we don't expect the center to arrive here until around 11am tomorrow.

We are all fine, and planning to have fried rice and shish-ka-bob for dinner tonight. Don't you wish you were here?

We haven't heard any reports about the areas of Honduras and Nicaragua which had the storm pass over them when it was a powerful hurricane. Although people on our side of the mountains and on the north coast are starting to say this storm hasn't been very bad, I keep thinking of the people to the east, and how this may have affected them.

Continuing in intercession to our loving Father who holds you in His everlasting arms... for your safety and for God to use this danger for His glory in Honduras and throughout Central America. I have heard of roofs off and 3 deaths in the Moskito Coast area. Also some flooding in Bonanzas Nicaragua. Tell the Kor-ingos that they too are in my prayers. God trusts them with His gospel work in Honduras and you all as well. He doesn't allow just anyone to walk through such great adventures! We love you all and can't wait to hear the great things our God is doing in response to this storm.
Love always
