Vanuatu is preparing for Cyclone Harold to hit, it is currently at category five. Please pray for the FCC as we get ready for its impact.
“By his power the sea grew calm. By his skill he crushed the great sea monster. His Spirit made the heavens beautiful, and his power pierced the gliding serpent. These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?”
Cyclone Harold hit Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu’s largest island, around 1:50 a.m. local time on April 6. Its path missed Port Vila, meaning that potential damage to the FCC and the local community was not as bad as it could have been. The country, which was already under a state of emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic, lifted its social-distancing practices and removed restrictions on public gatherings to help people move to safe shelters and evacuation centers. The FCC managed to host around 30 people from the community whose homes are located close to a river that floods whenever there is heavy rain. During this time we ate curry together, worshiped the Lord, hung out and chatted, set up a small clinic for wounds, and played with the kids. We were so happy to be able to open our doors and help our community in this way.
The government of Vanuatu has asked Marine Reach to send a medical team to Santo to help with desperately needed medical care as a result of Cyclone Harold. The team will be leaving in a few days under the leadership of our Head Nurse, Anna Harris.
