Thank you for your prayers regarding Tropical Storm Matthew. According to forecasts, it was headed directly toward us with lots of rain. Even until noon Saturday, local news was issuing warnings, and we prepared accordingly. However, around two in the afternoon the rain stopped, the sun came out, and the storm was gone! We were thankful for God's mercy!
There was some flooding, but not more than we have had at other times with lots of heavy rain. The junction for the road that passes by the Nazarene Center where I stay was flooded, and we had the opportunity to pull a stranded vehicle out of the water. Otherwise, TS Matthew was pretty much a non-event here, and we are blessed!
