So yesterday (Easter Sunday) was quite an exciting day for us. At 3:40pm we experienced a fairly extended, 7.2 Earthquake. At first i just thought the table was wobbling, but then realized everything else was moving as well. We immediately evacuated the campus.
With our Base director being away, Tym took the lead in executing the evacuation and connecting with the authorities for the all clear to go back. During the rest of the day, there were a few minor Aftershocks, one was even strong enough to wake us up at 630 this morning.
With the Tsunami warning a few weeks back, and now this... Its shaping up to be an eventful year!!!
With the continued aftershocks going on after the earthquake in Chile, we currently have a team there, accessing our response, and how a Homes of Hope program would work in the situation there.
In Haiti, we continue to have a team there, working with the YWAM campus, as they continue to be a lead player in helping restore the country.
Thanks for all your emails and messages, we are all OK
