Today was a new day with its own challenges. I awoke at 5 am and opened the garage door, which I must secure every night with a rope. I’ve been struggling to bring water to the San Rafael asylum. A former San Felipe school student helped me deliver five boxes of water to the asylum. We talk to the Mayor of Arecibo and implore him to send more water to the asylum. He promises to send ten more boxes today. We are still without electricity.
