They have officially been mandated by the regional councilor to evacuate the property and we were going to do so today, but, due to an opportune phone outage from Friday night till Saturday night, they were unable to finalize an evacuation point and thus have not yet evacuated. They weren't mandated to leave because of immediate danger, but rather so they don't get caught at that point. But now with the waters slowing, they are hoping to maybe re convince him otherwise. Please keep praying for this. There are a lot of logistics and extra expenses involved in evacuation and, as excited as the kids are and as much adventure as they don't already have, it wouldn't be ideal.
Until then, this compound continues to operate as an island. The only way to get anywhere is by boat. Even our neighboring villages are completely blocked by water.
