We had heard so much about how beautiful this island was, but unfortunately we arrived after the hurricane came through and ripped most of the leaves from the tress and the sea water turned the once vibrant green shrubs to brown….Everyone was in good spirits and know that this will all grow back in time. Due to the storm, just about EVERYTHING was closed down. Tim and I began to explore and found a wonderful church at the top of the hill.
God is so very good!!! That Sunday we were in for a real treat. Pastor Randy Crowe & his wife Paula were from New Symra! It felt like coming home. Ralph & Donna invited us to lunch along with the Pastor & his wife after church. Ralph took us on the ferry across to Hope Town and yet another wonderful friendship was formed!
