Friends & Family in the Path of the Hurricane

Sunday, August 31, 2008

I know I have readers from all over the world who visit/read this blog regularly. Today I ask if you can take a few minutes and remember in prayer those in Louisiana who are about to be hit by hurricane Gustav. I have family in Baton Rouge, Belle Chasse, Natchitoches, and Shreveport who are all battening down the hatches in preparation for the storm, which looks like it may still be at Category 2 strength when it goes over Baton Rouge. I also have friends throughout the state, and while I haven’t heard whether they’re evacuating or are riding out the storm wherever they are, I don’t want to forget them either.

So please pray for our friends and family in the Gulf Coast region as this storm bears down on them tonight that the damage will be minimal and the recovery afterward swift.

    Kaye, Thanks for the prayers. My son & DIL have evacuated to my house. It could still be a Cat 1 when it gets to Alexandria. We’ve battened down the hatches as well as we can. Rachel & her sister will be driving home from Arkansas in the morning. Prayers for their safe journey would be appreciated. We’ll let you know how we fare after it’s over.

    Yes, our Louisiana family and friends are likely hearing a whole lot of gumbo ya ya. Hopefully thier hearts and eyes and ears will seek God’s voice and light of Truth inthe midst of this storm. He is sooo good, and He always shines as a beacon in our storms.

    Made it home safe and sound and before the real wind arrived. Gustav was giving us a tail wind so the MPG for the return was fantastic!
