Aftermath of Hurricane Felix
Hope everything is fine with you.
I went back to Nicaragua to do some work on the Atlantic Cost, Father
Melesio and I stayed at Puerto Cabezas. We traveled everyday to the
of Santa Marta where we are building 10 houses.
We also visited the community of Sagni Laya where we delivered five of
the blankets. We decided
to go directly and give five of the blankets to families that have
small babies, and are severly affected by hurricane Felix which had
Father Melesio is delivering the rest of the blankets in Santa Marta,
another community on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua where nearly
all of the resident's homes had been completely destroyed.
Judith, this was my first visit to the Atlantic
Coast and I was so sad to see how people
are having to survive in such poor, miserable conditions. I'm still
trying to make the mental change after I returned to here. I really
want to keep
helping these people. Most of them speak spanish but in Sagni Laya was
difficult because most the woman and children speak mainly/only
miskito.Thank you for all your support.
