A picture from a Biloxi/Gulfport Newspaper...
I have just gotten sicker and sicker about the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina. It only takes a few minutes of watching the TV coverage to see that this was a catastrophic storm.
As I mentioned earlier, there are several people that I know in the affected areas that we have been concerned about but we are particularly worried about one specific family. I'm asking you all to please pray for them.
Our friend, Louise ("Weezy") has not been in contact with any friends or family since Sunday night. She lives in an area near Gulfport, MS and last anyone heard, she had moved inland only a couple more miles (like 5 miles from the coast). We're hoping she was able to move farther away before the Hurricane hit. She has her 2 boys with her. Please pray for their safety and for them to be able to contact loved ones soon. Everyone else at her office has been accounted for. We KNOW she would contact someone as soon as she could so we're all very worried.
Weezy is a dear friend of my sister-in-law, Donna and we've known her for many years through their close friendship. Donna is also very, very concerned.
I'll post something here as soon as we hear something.
Thanks for the prayers.
