Thanks for your prayers.

I am going to start off by saying Dale is safe and thank you for your thoughts and prayers..
Last night while Dale and I were talking on skype a bomb went off and gunfire erupted.
I have to tell you it was one of the scariest things have ever dealt with. It all happened so quick. One minute we are talking and he's chilling out in shorts and a T shirt the next moment he has a helmet and a flack jacket on. He tells me they are under attack and makes a point to tell me how much he loves me. Then all I see for the next 20 mins is his empty bed room with faint sounds of gunfire in the back ground..
He then comes in the room with a M16 and tells me that there is still gun fire going on out side the building and he's not sure what happened.
I then here people talking and he is changing in to his uniform getting ready to leave the camp.
I was scared but reassured by the holy spirit that he would be safe.
They came back to camp and then told me it was an attack on the Governor of the Island they are on. They where still not sure why there was gunfire in there camp.
There was a few injuries to the governors bodyguards but no casualties.
If you want to hear it from Dales side he wrote about the attack on his blog along with pix and a video.
Just clique HERE
Thanks again for your prayers and thoughts. They mean alot to Dale and I and the men he serves with..
