Olivia sent this to me tonight. Let's join her in prayer for this situation, for peace and safety in the midst of a very scary circumstance.
"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed upon You, because he trusts in You." Isaiah 26:3
Hey Mrs. M,
I have a very urgent prayer request (if you could post it on the Circle C Blog, that would be great).
I'm sure a lot of people may have already heard, but Louisiana is
flooding like never before! They're calling it 'The Great Flood of
2016'. SO many people are being evacuated and have water in their homes,
and it's only expected to worsen. We are safe at the moment where we
are, but they are saying that once the waters start to recede, it will
start flooding back south, right near where we are located. Prayers for
NO MORE flooding and peace and comfort for those whose homes have been
flooded would be very much appreciated!
It's amazing to see the church of Christ coming together through this,
though! We just helped cook, package, and deliver meals of jambalaya to
some of the local police and fire stations with a bunch of others from
our church. (They've been working so hard the past few days!) We'll be
at the church again first thing tomorrow morning to deliver more.
There are also many people opening their homes to those who have no place to go.
Just please pray, pray, pray!
Olivia J. (Livi Jane)
