Meet my son Curtis. He always seems to be on the edge of a cliff somewhere.
On January 28, 2011, he flew to AU to start a semester abroad in Cairns. Two days later, they had to evacuate because of the impending cyclone. It is the largest, most powerful storm to ever hit that part of the country. I received a quick call from him on 1/30/11, but was told I may not hear from him for weeks due to the circumstances they will be in. He and 17 other students are in a hostel on a plateau, out of flood threat. They have 5 days worth of food and water and at this moment are probably huddled in the basement riding out the storm. Until I know he's okay, normal everyday concerns seem pretty, well......meaningless. I'm asking for the collective prayers of my friends for the safety of the group & others in the path of this storm. Thank you for your prayers and goodwill...it means a lot.
*UPDATE a/o 5:30* Just heard from Curtis, the storm shifted to the south and Cairns was spared. The students are all fine and heading back to classes tomorrow! Thank you so much for the outpouring of prayer, support and overall good vibes!
