Abacos and Hurricane Dorian
Finding Purpose While Helping Others
Abacos and Hurricane Dorian:
The Abacos are a treasure that words just can’t capture. Words like beauty, awe-inspiring, friendly, unique are all appropriate descriptions but fall far short from reality.
As Hurricane Dorian made a direct hit, I wanted to share some before and after pictures and videos to give you the difference one day makes in the face of nature. The highest point on some of the islands is 10 feet. When you consider a 20-foot storm surge and 185 mph winds, you can only guess how bad it was.
On top of this, the people who live there are some of the nicest, down to earth, great people on the planet. Most are of little means but would give you the shirt off their back. Furthermore, most did not have the money to leave the islands for shelter.
Please Pray for them and help
Please consider praying for them and if possible, donate to the Red Cross. Here is the link. RED CROSS. Entire villages like Marsh Harbor have been totally wiped out. At least 11 people so far have lost their lives, including a 6-year-old boy. Many others are missing. Your donations will change their lives.
Your prayers are just as important.. They need to know that they are loved and this was not the vengeance of an angry God, but a natural part of life. A part of life in which they will someday find meaning and love FROM God.
Simple food has never looked so good as in the Abacos
Crystal clear waters with reefs growing out of the sea.
Views that go on forever.
An Architect’s Dream. An old world, still working lighthouse still sheds light.
Stunning, well cared for Victorian houses.
As you can see, the Abacos have been totally destroyed. However, it will be rebuilt. It is too beautiful to be left in ruin. Within this rebuilding may come your life purpose. Perhaps your skills in life have equipt you to help them rebuild. Rebuild like never before seen. Imaging creating houses that can rise above the storm surge using hydraulic lift technology and withstand 300 to 400 mph winds.
A House Which Is Made Of Recycled Plastic Bottles Is A Hurricane Proof House Which Can Bare 326 MPH Winds
You could create a home, like this one, that is made out of recycled plastic water bottles. Or, you could create one that rises above the waves. The world is your canvas.
A Canadian company has lately completed the building of a house with exterior walls made from recycled plastic, and it’s claimed to have the ability to face up to winds gusting at over 300 miles per hour.
Constructed by JD Composites, the three-bed bedroom house is situated close to the Meteghan River in Nova Scotia. Other than a definite lack of trees, gardens, and neighbors, the home appears to be like some other house with a bright trendy design and a minimalist facade. Inside it’s furnished and completed with drywall covered lumber partitions, however, the exterior is what makes the home attractive as a new, and seemingly a lot improved, strategy to the building.
Wrapping the home, and offering its reinforced construction and excessive sturdiness, are 5.9-inch thick panels produced from somewhere around 612,000 plastic soda bottles that had been shredded, melted, after which it is injected with fuel to create a type of plastic-based foam that has many vital benefits over extra conventional construction supplies.
Benefits like a higher covering in each of the winter and summer months, they’re moisture and mildew resistant, they help to maintain plastics out of waste services. As a result, you can build a home in a matter of days, not months, as a result of the panels are first created offsite and assemble like a giant puzzle.
You could create a legacy that takes a land on the outskirts of a continent and puts it at the forefront of safety, ingenuity, and design.
Maybe, this could save thousands of lives, spark a new wave of safe, self-sufficient buildings that would write your name in the sands of time.
