Preach hope today! Many are struggling with the pain of loss and fear because of the recent storms. There is only one who can calm the storms of our lives and give them the context of purpose. His name is Jesus.
I received the following from Missouri Disaster Relief missionary, Dwain Carter: “Hello Friends,
“I sure could use your prayers as I wrap up Hannibal Recovery efforts today and head to St Louis to start an new recovery effort.
The St Louis storm traveled for 40ish miles with damage all along that track, from south of Lake St Louis to the Mississippi river. I am looking at setting up 2 recovery sites and a central Operations Command Unit.
Currently asking for help from 4 States, TN-DR, LA-DR, MS-DR and KSNE-DR. This is going to be a major effort. It has been a long couple weeks.
Last, we are also looking at the front of a major flood event as well. More rain is expected across the state Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Oh, and there is a tropical depression forming that has its eye on the gulf coast.
Pray for Dwain and our DR warriors. As human and other resources are stretched to the max, pray that The Lord’s grace, mercy and power is demonstrated through His people with clarity.
