a few seconds after we hung up I got a call from Kent Fuller with Bob's # (cell)and I was to call right away. He was on the roof of a
house in SP where he could get a good enough signal. He is with Charlene and there pets are fine. There house is damaged but okay. The
school is still intact but quite a mess the school yard is really torn up. He says all the trees on the island are so messed up they'll likely all
die. He said it does look like a war zone. The north end of SP was damaged severlyalong with the lagoon side. They are sooo fortunate to be
on the side of the island that they are. Their boat made it without too much damage. They have no water but there is some drinking water and
Barry is going back and forth the Belize and bringing out supplies. There are also barges up and running as well as other boats so there will be
food and water supplies going out today.So far there are 10 dead and some people still missing.
The really poor people will really be hurting for clothes and shoes since they had to abandon everything. He said that if someone wanted to
send clothes/shoes(for children-used clothes) of varying sizes that he thought there would be a pretty good rate by FedEx. It could be sent to
Robert Lee c/o TRopic Air Belize City.

He didn't say. Short phone call to just get the message out they were OK and what they want us to provide in help.

RE: Pam andTim Swan - when I spoke to Kent earlier he said everyone was okay. I know that Tim and Pam were at his place earlier so I'm sure they are fine. The Belmopan area was not hit hard. Rain and strong winds - they are all fine.

Sorry Mindisue. Don't know. I will have Robin advise if she knows. At least their phone in Belmopan is working so you might be able to call.

p.s. thanks for the info about the Kings College staff. Mother-In-Law would be relieved to hear.

Thanks everyone! [Linked Image] I just called Marion and talked to her for awhile. I'll be speaking with Pam & Tim later tonight.

Does anyone have any info on the situation at King's? I haven't been able to find anything! I know the Castillo's weathered the storm there, but i think they were the only ones. It would be great to hear how they are!

I also know that right before pam & tim left sunday morning, a branch fell through the roof of their house. I'm wondering about the damage on campus and the conditions they'll be coming back to! [Linked Image]

My prayers are with all there!
