Hurricane Sandy..a true show of God's power!

     Long Island was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. There wasn't much rain, but the wind alone caused a devastating amount of damage. I am so thankful that my immediate family only lost power for two days, but compared to others that was nothing. Our neighbors tree fell on his house and their was definitely structral damage. Trees still litter the streets along with downed telephone poles. Others lost all their belonging due to flood waters over 5 feet high. The sewers were flooded and are finally working again. Over 500,000 still don't have power, including some street lights. The newest problem is that gas stations are running out of gas, nd for the stations that still have, there are lines that go for miles. I never in my life dreamed of seeing such a sad sight. The local news is so devestating, that I can't watch it without sheading tears for some of the people. God showed his power during this storm and he's showing it in the cleanup efforts. Please keep praying, it will be a few weeks or even a few months, till eveything goes back to normal around here. (If you'd like to hear more stories or how the relief is going you can contact me at
