It’s not all beach and sun here. The island is 5 months past 2 devastating hurricanes and while the tourist areas are mostly back to normal, the residential areas still show a lot of damage. It’s heartbreaking to see. 💔 #hurricanemaria#hurricaneirma#damage#itmakesmesad
DomRep17 Teil 7: 🌴🌪
“What’s your room numbbba?” 👋🏿 endlich kam jemand, um uns zu retten (sprich uns in unser Zimmer zu lassen). Erleichtert machten wir uns bettfertig und schliefen bald darauf trotz Sturm ⛈ ein. 😴
Tatsächlich verpennten wir sämtliche #hurricane Ausläufe und waren sichtlich verwirrt 🤷🏻♀️ muss wohl auch an der hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit und Hitze gelegen haben, denn dank des Stromausfalls ging natürlich auch keine Klimaanlage 🤤💦
Nach einem nicht ganz so vielfältigem Frühstück wie üblich (sie konnten ohne Strom keine #pencakes 🥞 backen ☹️) gingen wir an den Strand, um die Schäden ins Auge zu fassen: einige Palmen 🌴 hatten sich von ihren Blättern getrennt und der gesamte Strand war voller Algen, aber das wars auch schon. Wir hatten großes Glück gehabt. 🍀 ———————

Today we are celebrating #CollectionBride Jamie and her husband Carlos. 🎉 Jamie and Carlos were suppose to be married the weekend of Hurricane Irma, yet they didn’t let that stop them! When all was looking impossible the couple rallied their friends and family together. “Since Irma was so unpredictable and we knew that we wanted to get married no matter what, we decided to hold off on our big wedding and have it Friday 9/8/17 at my parents beautiful home. Many peoples flights were canceled, but we were lucky enough that all of Carlos’ family was here from Brazil. Thursday evening we called everyone, vendors, friends, family and told them the new location and everyone came through. We had friends drive all night to get there from Miami, Tampa, and even Tennessee!” Jamie wore a stunning Martina Liana off the shoulder lace wedding gown down the isle. When describing her wedding you could feel the amount of love surrounding the event. “What a hectic weekend this was. But it turned out absolutely amazing. I tear up every time I look at our pictures. It might not have been the wedding we had been planning, but our little hurricane wedding turned out to be amazing. We got married at my parents house, my childhood home, in front of our closest friends and family. At the end of the day I married my best friend and the love of my life. Carlos is an amazing man and he actually just got back from a 3 month deployment with the army. I am so happy to have him home!!”, Jamie discribed to us in her email. She said all of her vendors truly pulled together and made her dream wedding happen. 🌟 📸: Scoobie’s Photographic Images 💐: Jason with Florida Flower and Orchids

Congratulations to the happy couple 🎉

Over 40% of Puerto Rico is still without power, which means many have no way to cook food. All ovens & stoves are electric. Our team from #RivertreeChurch in Huntsville is here this week clearing trees & debris, praying over families house to house, sharing the Gospel and helping these pastors rebuild after #hurricaneirma and #hurricanemaria as an act of love to the community. Thanks to Oasis Baptist Church & Family Baptist Church, pastor Farlin, Johnny, Wilner, and others for your incredible heart and desire to reach your own community in a time of crisis. We’re honored to partner with you and pray that many come to faith as God turns sorrow into gladness and makes beauty from ashes. #Tre#TrekXal #TrekX #PuertoRico#DisasterRelief
As they say, When in Rome..........
Well, When in Florida.........
No room for carpet here, about to lay 1300 square feet of 16"x16" tile. .
We are doing a restoration on this hurricane damaged house. This house is only on 4' stilts, so the 16' storm surge did some serious water damage to this property. .
Benchmark is your all inclusive contractor for any size project. We assess the scope of work and find the most cost effective and time efficient way to tackle it..
