Pray For the Victims of Ike


Calm Seas - Part 1

Calm Seas - Part 2

Our Prayers Needed in Wake of Hurricane Ike

Texas — seven dead, including a person found in a submerged vehicle in Galveston and a 4-year-old Houston boy, of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning from an emergency generator.

Louisiana — six dead, including a 16-year-old boy trapped in rising flood waters.

Tennessee — two dead, both golfers killed by a falling tree.

Arkansas — one dead when a tree fell on a mobile home.

Ohio — three dead, including one who died when a tree fell on a home.

Indiana — four dead, a father and son killed helping children escape from a ditch.

Illinois — two dead, including an elderly man found in a flooded backyard.

Businesses and homes can be rebuilt. Not so human lives.

The thoughts of the rest of the world are with the friends and families of all those lost to Ike.

That was a very unusual storm in that it caused destruction (and death) all the way up to Canada.
