Weathering The Storm Update from Peter and Tyanne

We would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank you” for your patience and prayers. It has been a difficult journey for Peter and Tyanne. Going back to late September, Peter has provided a brief overview of their tumultuous journey over the past few months.

We were preparing for a trip back to the states for Caleb’s Cup Golf Tournament hosted by Tyanne’s family in Atlanta, Georgia to raise funds for Hope Center / Honors Academy.  Her sister invited us to join her a few days of vacation beforehand in Panama City, FL. But, after only being there two days, Tyanne slipped on the stairs and broke her leg. It turned out to be a spiral fracture that required several hours of surgery and consequently resulted in a bi-lateral pulmonary embolism. Tyanne was told she would need rehab for at least three months and it was recommended that we not return to Honduras until she completely recovered and had full movement of her leg. She was transferred to a rehabilitation nursing facility where the healing process was to begin.

However, after only a week in the facility, we were ordered to quickly evacuate the building as Hurricane Michael was approaching.  With Tyanne still in a wheelchair and under strict medical care, we fled the rehab center to a nearby hotel. Both the rehab center and hospital were almost completely flattened by the hurricane. The small hotel where we weathered the storm was all but destroyed as every room window was blown out, with the exception of the window in our room. Jesus was in that room, carefully protecting and guarding us just as He was on the boat long ago with the disciples.

Here are a few pictures of the devastation that we were surrounded by in Panama City. So glad we made it out safe and sound.

Though it was difficult to make our way around Florida after the hurricane we were blessed with family and friends who were able to help us. Because of this, we were able to stay in Florida while Tyanne was healing. Over the past few months I haven’t been on social media much as my priority was helping my wife Tyanne recuperate from her surgery. The Biggest Christmas Gift I could have been given was to see Tyanne smiling, and walking without a wheelchair, walker, or cane.

As we look to 2019, a fresh start and a new year, we are so thankful for all of you. Please continue to pray for us. Pray for protection and guidance as we serve the people of Honduras.Pray that people will come to know Jesus through the work being done at Hope Center and Honors Academy.
