Her latest message on 11th May 2014 Beryl shared.
I ask for prayer for the people at Rio Verde, Sombrero Piri and La Patria as after last week's downpour they are all flooded out. Norma the health promoter is living with the Primavera community on the opposite side of the road under tarpaulins that the Emergency services have provided. Ramon from Jerusalem is here in town and he put his mother's bed on a table so that she could sleep somewhere dry as the water is hip deep in their house. La Patria is completely cut off but helicopters from the Emergency Services have done something.
Many of you will also know that Beryl has been trying to replace a stolen vehicle. Beryl wrote: “ The money to buy a replacement vehicle should be available next Friday, D.V. It’s been quite a battle getting the insurance company to comply with their affairs. If the money is not forthcoming Rhett will get his lawyers to get on to them. Please pray that won't be necessary and that I'll have wisdom about a new vehicle also wisdom about how the flood victims can best be helped”.
