Prayer Requests and Reports: August 2005 Archives

Good News!!


Got through to Christine, only for about a minute and half--enough to ascertain that all of her family is okay. Their houses are underwater/destroyed and Christine presently has 11 guests in her house, but praise God their all alive!

As soon as I know more I'll let you all know. But praise God, everyone in this small group is okay.

Please continue prayers both for Christine and for all the others who are suffering hardship from loss of livelihood, goods, or loved ones. What a terrible, terrible storm.

I know I was terribly frightened on my trip home from Columbus in the aftermath of Charley as I was seeing all the devastation. But that doesn't hold a candle to this.

Plea for Prayers

| | Comments (1)

You all know my good friends Christine and Gordon. They live in Louisiana, but outside of the worst of the storm. However, most of Christine's family lives in New Orleans/Metarie, including her mom and dad. Please pray that they are all right. I haven't been able to get in touch with Christine yet and naturally I am quite concerned because of the extent of the damage done and the frailness of her parents. I only hope they had the good sense to leave the city. Also brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins--the entire family was in the path of destruction. I'll keep you all posted as I find out more.

Please pour out your prayers on the people of New Orleans, Louisiana, and adjacent states. This storm sounds like one to rival that of Galveston in the 1930s. It is much larger than the slightly weaker Andrew that devastated South Florida some years ago, and it's heading for a city that sits normally about 5 feet below sea level.

Pray for those leaving and traveling away. Pray for those left behind or staying behind. Pray for a weakening of the storm rapidly. At this strength it will affect people well-inland who have never experienced anything quite like this.
