Noon monday 10/3 :  Mini update!

So update. Our flood insurance company’s infrastructure is all down online.

They don’t know when the claims will be processed and they are doing system updates. Please just pray that happens soon.

Also we are still looking for an RV to live in outside our house. We haven’t been able to get to our pop up to see if that’s an option, but something more “permanent” would be awesome for the next month.

I’m working on a more immediate need for amazon too.. including things like vitamins for my kids and diffusers so they can breath better at night wherever we end up being.

We are headed to the house today to meet a couple friends with kids who can help our kids have some “normal friend time” today.. And maybe take another wall down. We are limping.. but moving !

I also got a message from an Orlando friend who is willing to organize her business to come help an elderly neighbor. Please pray I would be able to have wisdom to suggest one that God already has in mind because the needs are so great.. I’ve never been in a situation to “pick” who gets help first.. this is another level of difficulty you only see in the movies! It’s real deal here!!! 

So grateful for the love and care for our family and community!
