Hurricane Ike and September 11th.

Hello everyone,
Just a note: Please pray for all of the people being hit by hurricane Ike.
A friend of mine (and possibly yours), Rebecca Martinez and her family are about thirty-five minutes
from Corpus, (at least that's what I gathered, I may be wrong,) so just keep them in your prayers.

Also, September the 11th, which was two days ago, was the 7th Anniversary o
f the 911 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.
I remember when it fell; mom and dad were watching the news all day, and of course, Nate and I had no clue what was going on. Then that night mom and dad sat us both down and explained, to give us an idea of how many people the police had counted dead, they took over 3,000 pennies and laid them out on our table.

Remember that something like this could happen again, so please pray that God would have mercy on our dieing nation!

Hi Hannah,
I am very glad you did that post.
It is hard to believe that 9-11 was so long ago. The morning it happened my mom woke us kids up and told us that two planes had been flown into the trade center and I had no idea what she was talking about I had never even heard of the trade center. After we were all up we walked over to our grandparents house to watch the news and saw the towers fall. It was so hard for me to realize what it was I was seeing and how long that would effect our nation.

I also thank you for your prayer request for those who were hit by Ike. It has almost completely destroyed Galveston and has done a lot of damage in Huston and all the counties in that area. Few people have electricity left there and they say it may take weeks for them to get it back. So they really do need prayer.
Thanks again.

Your Friend way down south in Texas
Rebecca Marie
