Last week, the rain was so heavy, and in fact, there were few galvanized roofs had been flown and landed on the street. And the roofs of our neighbor’s house had been collapsed and until now they never rebuild the roofs yet.
And today, the rain was so heavy and the wind was very strong, and I could really hear the roofs in the parsonage were really shaking and the roof of our neighbor was flown onto the roof of the parsonage and later blown by the strong wind and landed on the school ground. The good thing that the students and parents who were still at the school and I called them and let them stayed inside the parsonage and they there until the heavy rain subsided.
While I was sitting with parents and students, I thought of my family, and I thought of the houses of my sister and my brother because both of their houses were made of wood and the houses were quite not strong enough to stand against the strong wind. And while we’re having our prayer meeting at church, I decided to phoned my sister, and when she answered the phone, she cried, and I asked what happened to her why she was crying and she told me that the roofs of her house were brown away by the strong wind. And I asked her if they were all okay and nobody was get hurt. And thank God they were all safe and it was also wonderful that while the heavy and strong wind roared on my sister house, they evacuated to our mother’s house. I believe it was guidance of God that they should ran to our mother’s for their shelter, although, they were so wet when they arrived there. But it was truly great that they quickly transferred.
I have been so thankful to God for the safety of my siblings, though, their house was broken, but there is no big with it because their lives are more important to me. I know that they house will be rebuilt again.
By the way, not only my sister’s house was broken but also her neighbors. According to everyone, it was the first time that the wind was very strong and destroyed some houses.
