It seems as though disaster is following me! Last Sunday evening (October 15th) a huge fire threatened our property.
Here is the official announcement we published about the fire:
"On Sunday, October 15th, 2017, we had a big wildfire on our property. We want to praise the Lord for His protection using brave firemen and civil protection officers. They got the fire under control and each family returned safely to their homes.
This was a National Crisis with more than 500 fires in Portugal that weekend. Around 2pm, a fire started about 2 miles away and spread to the valley in front of our property. Suddenly, the wind changed direction towards us, so we began an emergency evacuation at 8pm. The fire was brought back under control around 2am. The fire department kept watch on our campus for 48 hours.
We are thankful that there was no major structural damage to our buildings. We lost our playground, our low ropes and high ropes course and the climbing tower was severely damaged.
We want to thank everyone who gave us encouraging words, offered help, opened their homes, and prayed for us.
God is still in control and we are trusting Him through this. Prov. 3:5-6"
