Friday we got a slow start to our day as we frequently do on Fridays. We didn’t have to be anywhere so we slept in. Sara didn’t leave on Friday morning as we expected. She had a dead battery in her coach. Max got it out for her and NAPA tested it and thought it would take a charge and when Sara and her daughter checked in with them on Saturday morning it was charged and her coach cranked right up. She and her daughters were on their way. Hopefully this is the end to her problems and we are praying for safe travels. The rest of Friday was spent on laundry, cleaning and baking. The weather started taking a turn for the worse by Friday afternoon and we decided we should stay close to home rather than biking over to No Name Key. By Friday night we were under a severe thunderstorm watch and the Everglades area where our NOMADS friends were overnighting was under a tornado warning. We had heavy rain but not too much wind.
Saturday there was a large health fair sponsored by the University of Miami with the physicians and nursing students from the university doing various exams and checkups for the people of the lower keys, here at the church. The UM Women sold sandwiches, hot dogs, chili, and desserts as a fund raiser during the event so several of the NOMADS made things for them to sell. Anne took them the blueberry nut bread she baked on Friday. It rained and stormed most of the day Saturday so it was just a stay at home day with some walking and biking between the storms. We were very thankful when Lisa and Mark arrived safely after their stormy night in the Everglades.
Today was a beautiful Florida sunshine day but the wind is back to 25 mph. Our usual Sunday schedule, worship, brunch, a free afternoon and then team meeting. We plan to go back to Dennis’s tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend.
