Emergency Preparedness – “Live From the Gulf Coast” (22 Sept ‘05) by Melba Cox
Pensacola, Florida: “We are hangin’ in here! “Rita” is an SEH storm so far. “Somebody Else’s Hurricane.” I feel for the Louisiana and Texas people this weekend. (24 Sept ’05) Our wards have been sending out work parties (since 29 Aug ’05 to clean up Katrina) of 7+ each weekend until now. They don’t want us on the roads this time, due to so many people trying to evacuate (ahead of Hurricane Rita) on the interstates. There have been great missionary opportunities down here. One Newspaper commented (after last Fall’s hurricane ‘Ivan’) that “there were two churches that stood out above all the rest when it came to helping the hurricane victims. One was the Mormon Church and the other was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. . .” We feel privileged to serve.”
Do you have enough and to spare? Are you prepared to be the answer to someone else’s prayers?
