Preparation for the Hurricane
As many of you already know, our Makarios communities on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic are expected to be hit hard by Hurricane Irma. In light of those who were affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, I want to give you an update on how we are preparing in the DR for the hurricane and also ask for your prayers.
School las been cancelled for the week, and the school building is prepared for potential flooding. The Makarios House will be a safe place for anyone who needs it, including our staff and families from our communities. We have encouraged those who are able, to evacuate to the middle of the island. We are stocking up on water, food, batteries, etc.. to weather the storm.
After the hurricane passes, depending on the severity of the damage and potential flooding, we will communicate any needs to help get the school and families back on their feet. Please pray that the damage is minimal and more importantly that our students, staff, and families are safe. We trust that God will care for us during this time and comfort those in need.
Thank You for your prayer and support during this time,
