Hurricane Irma hits us around 2 AM on September 11th

September 10, 2017: YWAMers from a couple other YWAM Bases arrive to shelter with us at YWAM Orlando. Darla and I also had a total of 12 in our home. Hurricane Irma approaches and we lose power at about 8:30 PM

On September 11th at 2:00 AM winds are howling, water is seeping into our home, but the structure remains sound. We checked it out and saw only minor damage on the outside of our house, but will have to paint the ceiling inside. 

All are safe at YWAM Orlando and no major building damage. Lots of downed trees and some power lines are down. The main road to the campus was blocked from both directions due to downed trees and power lines. Although many trees fell around our campus as a result of Hurricane Irma they all missed our buildings. Even in the RV Park where some of our staff live in their RV's, none suffered damage from falling trees. How astonishing! We are so grateful to the Lord!
