Today is part two of a two-part article about the most recent missionary trip to Dominica. We're picking up the story where we left off yesterday, with Brothers Jerry and Patrick trying to get a flight home to the U.S. with Hurricane Irma on her way towards them.
We informed our families of our situation, and the word quickly spread throughout the church of the need for prayer. Many, many people prayed for us, and many contacted our families to encourage them. A brother sent us a vision he had of a white mist with gold letters spelling out the message, “I will not forsake my own, thus saith the Lord.”
God heard all of your prayers on our behalf. The hurricane bypassed Dominica on Tuesday night, and we were all kept safe. There was some heavy rain and some power outages, but things were back to normal by Wednesday afternoon, so we ventured out to set up some appointments for Thursday.
