Help Save The Bahamas
As Hurricane Dorian began to approach and then hit The Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane, most of us could imagine the possible impact the winds, rain and high
water would have on the island nation before turning up the East Coast. Our worst fears were realized and it was reported today that approximately 2,500 people are
still missing.

Ad Hurricane Dorian wreaked its havoc on The Bahamas, I exchanged a couple of emails with Bishop Stubbs. The following are excerpts from those emails:

“The Bahamas needs all the help and support that can ever be given,” Subbs said. “I have never absolutely cried like I have been crying in all my life. Hurricane Dorian
slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon as a Category 5 hurricane, making the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record. The storm hovered over the
archipelago's northern islands for nearly two days, flattening over 13,000 homes, submerging roads and flooding our airport in Marsh Harbour Abaco. Family
members are still missing and at least 30 people have died so far due to Hurricane Dorian, but the final death count will be absolutely staggering.

“My Sister Shavonne Stubbs, who work at The Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport, The Bahamas as a nurse, told me that the hospital was under water, with patients
forced to evacuate and the only international airport on the island of Grand Bahama was devastated and cannot serve as a staging ground for medical evacuations or
emergency aid deliveries. My people need help, please help me send help or give help." --

Well in the meantime, Shelia got elected to the Wisconsin legislature and Godfrey heads up End Time International Ministries. And although
he has been in Madison all of these years, Godfrey still remains deeply connected to his birthplace, The Bahamas, where his family members
still live.
Sometimes paradise can become a nightmare. I remember a long time ago when Shelia Stubbs went to
The Bahamas for vacation, I think, and ended up meeting the love of her life, now Bishop Godfrey
Stubbs. I’ve always thought those types of romantic stories are what give hope to a world often times
bereft of love. And it is equally as beautiful to see them in love all of these years later.
