Yesterday it rained about 3/4 inch, or 19mm. Gayle and I and two pastors drove back yesterday late afternoon from the pastors' meeting in the interior town of São Miguel, two and a half hours out, and I noticed that the streets here had lots of standing water. We knew it had rained big time. It's raining right now, today may match yesterday.
Leaving in a few minutes to load up the new VW van, the Kombi, with people who live in areas that will be totally under water.
THANK THE LORD FOR THE NEW KOMBI. It's not likely to quit on us, and these vehicles are high and cut through the water like a 15 foot bass boat, leaving a nice wake behind. Prayer meeting is at 7:30.
Thanks to all who helped us with the purchase of the van.
Thanks to those who keep this work going and keep praying.....Rick and Gayle
