Last week Jan & I hosted a great group of folks on Long Island, The Bahamas. They accomplished so much- 2 roofs for needy families, 13 windows installed at the Simms Brethren Church, Oasis repairs, Ice Cream Party, and a youth Bible study at the Oasis. (no wonder I'm tired this week) Great job everyone! Remember Proverbs 11:25 "whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." Thanks for serving!
Our family's Christmas wishes to all.

Great KICK OFF for Club on Long Island last night! Josh began a message series based on John Ortberg's book, The Me I Want to Be. Steph Curry was his example of a person living their life with purpose. Awesome night.
Good Afternoon Everyone!
We cannot thank you enough for the many prayers! We are so grateful!
Here's the latest report:...
Long Island- Josh faired well, and the island was spared a direct hit. They will be in recovery mode for several days with some power, cell and internet outages. I still have yet to hear a report on the Oasis building and from some of the families we have ministered to over the years. I'll share more as I learn more.
Nassau: was also spared a direct hit. Some wind, but nothing like they experienced last year with Hurricane Matthew. We are grateful!
Abaco: Hurricane Irma is still south of us and projected to turn north. THANKFULLY- the forecast is for it to be west of our location. Currently, we have some 25-35 mph winds and rain coming from the outer bans, the peak for us should be Sunday morning/afternoon. If it doesn't change course we should only have tropical storm conditions! Which is a blessing. We may loose power, cell and internet but I will be in touch as soon as we are back online.
Please keep the other islands that experienced a direct hit and the people of Cuba who are still feeling the effects. Though reports are still sketchy, many of the far southern Bahamian islands (Inagua, Acklin, Mayaguana and Ragged Islands may have been totally washed out!) The Government did evacuate most of the residents before the storm, but they may not have anything to return to.
Thank you so very much for your prayers!
