Update #2 on Hurricane Sandy


Hey, everyone. Just wanted to let you know that we are all still doing fine! By God's grace we still have sound shelter, power, water, and internet. We are extremely thankful for God's provision in this mess and also for your thoughts and prayers. We just wrapped up Evensong and are about to enjoy a dinner together as a community under a roof still in tact.

If you could, as we did many times tonight, lift up those who do not have shelter or power in this awful storm. Many parts of the Academy (not our house yet, however) are flooded and the flooding has really just begun.

Here are some photos I took about an hour ago of areas starting to flood. Also, it's looking like our beautiful 1/4-mile long pier is taking a brutal beating, especially at the end. Boards are ripped up and it has become extremely unstable. Needless to say, we will be in the house until this thing is over. 

The storm is supposed to continue well into tomorrow so I assume we will be losing power and such at some point. I will do my best to keep updating as things happen.

As for now, dinner time. Keep us in your prayers!
