Eleuthra Day 4


We heard yesterday about the tornadoes on Grand Bahama and our first thoughts were whether we would see that same weather system here. But as it lifted north of us we were thankful for our safety but concerned for others. Bahamas Habitat is such a great organization because before they started worrying about their safety, Abe and his team were planning for how to help others. When the earthquake hit Haiti, they loaded up their planes and headed down there. So this morning we are loading up as many supplies as we can and 8 people to fly over to Grand Bahama and do whatever we can over the next three days. It is a great adventure into the unknown and uncertainty.

My devotional for this morning was from John 15 where Jesus talks about being the true vine. It is such a blessing to be a branch on the vine and feel our connection with Christians around the world. So whenever anyone is hurting or in need, all of the branches hurt and are in need. Jesus said, "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you...you are my friends if you do what I command you." So we don't know what these next days hold for us except to be called friends of Christ and branches on the vine.

Blessings,
