We were up most of the night as the rain fell. We have gotten more rain in the past 12 hours than we have in the entire 4 years we've lived here combined.
Our house is raised up with a cement foundation and while we can't leave due to the flooded roads, we are thankful to be safe and dry. But many of the people in our church live next to creek beds, have poor roofs and some still have dirt floors. Daniel just called Hna. Maria Flores and she said the water has been entering the house and they are having to scoop it out with 5 gal buckets.
Please pray for the safety of the people here, especially those in our church. We hardly ever get rain, but when we do, it floods so very quickly. We would love to go help or at least check on some people, but the creeks are overrunning their banks and the roads are flooded with 2 feet of water.
Thank you for your prayers.
Looking into our yard about 8 am this morning.
The property next to us is flooded and running into our neighbors yard behind us.
