Disaster at Home

Thanks to all of your prayers I am feeling better!!

I know you have seen the weather news with all the flooding in Indiana. My family lives in Columbus and are being hit very hard with their record floods. One of the dams on the local lake has given way and a downtown bridge has collapsed. The record flood was way back in 1913 and this tops that one!

Needless to say people are suffering greatly. The hospital is closed indefinitely, the one high school is flooded and people have lost their lives. My parents are a farming family and all is underwater.

We will be heading north, originally for the birth of our new granddaughter, and now into who knows what. We are praying we will be able to reach our home as all roads leading to it are now closed.

It is our hope that you will cover everyone with your prayers and if there is any way you can help please do so! The Red Cross is organizing relief along with Salvation Army. If you have mine or Monty's phone, please give us a call!

For any and all of you who have sacrificed yourselves and come here to help--- YOU know what flood waters do. YOU know what these families are facing once the waters decrease! We thank you for your prayers and we thank you for your hearts of service.

I will do the best I can to keep you updated. It might not be easy but as always, I'll do my best.

God's blessings to all!

Until next time . . . Susan and Monty
