More News From Samantha




Dawn again...

I just got off the phone with Samantha and help has arrived!!! The National Guard, Samaritan's Purse, Convoy of Hope and The Red Cross are all there. Sam sounded so relieved and she was happy to announce that supplies are arriving and donations are starting to come in. As a matter of fact the church has set up a little shop and Sam is the shopkeeper, for the next few weeks or even months she is going to be handing out much needed supplies to anyone who needs them...food, water, clothing, diapers, personal items, etc.etc and she sounded so happy to be able to be helping those in need. She said one lady came in today and asked if they had any feminine products and when Sam handed her a box she burst into tears she was so happy. I can't even imagine ....

For those of you who wanted to know about Sam's house, it's fine. They just have no power right now which is why they are staying with her sister, Rachel. But their house is fine. She said they have a lot of trees down on their land but otherwise they got off pretty easy compared to most.

I will continue to check in as I hear from Samantha to keep you all up to date on what's happening! Thanks to all of you for all your prayers and well wishes. I reminded Sam that she is loved by so many people and we are all praying for them.

Just posted a comment on the previous post about sending a box via UPS. Please let me know. I also have a fold up newborn bathtub etc. I am sure someone who lost everything could use it!
