MANY MANY THANKS FOR FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS. My family is okay, dry and safe. The coastal parts of our parish, however, are inundated with water and it will be a few days b/f the water recedes and people can begin to put their lives back together again. Most of those affected were affected by Hurricane Rita and it is heartbreaking to see this happen again in 3 years. In the last 18 years, we've only been affected by 3 hurricanes - 1992 was Andrew, 2002 was Lili, and 2005 was Rita. Now, this summer, we've been hit twice in 10 days. I pray this is the last time for quite a few years.
