Hurricane Wilma

October 21, 2005 3:42 am

We have gotten some questions as to whether Hurricane Wilma will be near us. Thank you for your concern.

She will be hitting about 3 hours east of us, but then is supposed to turn to a northeastern track. If that happens, then she should not be much of a factor for us except for some rain. If she does not make the turn and continues on a northwesterly track, then things will be a little rough here. But like Emily, which came through earlier in the year, she would go well enough to the north to only be mild.

Cancún, on the other hand, will be badly hit from this storm. Pray for any people and missionaries you know in that area.

Update – October 17

We have been praying for an opportunity to work with a 9 year old girl and her family for quite some time. They live in a village about 30 minutes south of Mérida. I have been able to start meeting with her family and working with them and a few friends on learning sign language. I am spending about 2 hours a week with them and look forward to the day when we can report her salvation.

I sent our October prayer letter talking about the 2 different groups of Deaf we have here in the city and how we had not had much contact with this second group. Just after that was sent we had a young man come to our Bible study from the other group. Pray with us that Luís will be able to help us reach into this whole new sphere of influence.

October Prayer Letter

Here is our October letter. Inside you will read about:

  • One year anniversary of being here in Mérida
  • Summer Trip: Deaf Camp under water
  • More Deaf contacts

This letter is several weeks late due to our computer being down. Thankfully we are up and running again.
