Today the rain began very early even for the rainy season here. It was very hard and we had shut all of our doors because it was coming in the house. Because we had shut the doors, we did not realize how bad it had gotten outside. We had a friend, Wences, that Jacob was going to pick up in Cartago, so he left in the rain to go get him. He called about 10 minutes after he left and I had to go outside to answer the phone. When I opened the door, there was a ton of flooding. Now our house is in the village of Boqueron. However, we are probably one of the highest, elevation wise, houses in the village. In the field next to the house, you could hear the water rushing and there was a large waterfall that had formed there from the runoff from higher up the volcano. Jacob said it took him about 10 minutes to just get down our driveway because part of it had been washed away. I am posting the news footage from tonight. Please be in prayer for the people of our area. We are safe and dry, but unfortunately, there are many who are not. Please keep them in your prayers.

I am so in to being encouraged through music. Sitting quietly and putting praise and worship music on my ipod and just listening is like snuggling in God the Father’s lap and letting him heal me, comfort me, guide me, encourage me and be my all in all. This song, Potter’s Hands is one of those that bring me such comfort and encouragement. Here are the words. I would encourage you to try spending time with our Father in song. Try it now with this song. The link where you can listen to it on YouTube is here.
