We were all set to begin our first day of school today after a week of preparation and finishing touches on our school building when we learned of a growing hurricane headed for Haiti. We quickly packed up the classroom and evacuated to higher ground late yesterday afternoon. Please please join us in praying for the people of Haiti as we prepare for a category 4 storm, Hurricane Matthew, expected to hit late tonight/tomorrow. It is looking as if winds will be 130mph with 25-40 inches of rain. Many of our neighbors and friends are not prepared. We are praying for their safety, as well as for the protection of their homes & belongings.
Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus Calms the Storm
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
