Evacuating--out of touch for awhile

We have just been put under a mandatory evacuation order from our county and city emergency management officials. For the first time in history, large parts of Cape Coral, including where we live, are in flood zones. After deliberating for a couple of hours, our church leaders determined to go ahead with our Sunday morning schedule. Instead of our normal Bible Study classes, we will meet to pray and make last minute arrangements to assist those needing help to get ready for the storm. Then we will worship together. Then we will leave and hope to be able to meet together again on Wednesday.

I anticipate being out of touch for awhile. Thanks for your prayers.

Psalm 93
(our unofficial "hurricane psalm")

The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The LORD is clothed,
He has girded Himself with strength.
Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved.

Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
The floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their waves.

The LORD on high is mightier
Than the noise of many waters,
Than the mighty waves of the sea.

Your testimonies are very sure;
Holiness adorns Your house,
O LORD, forever.
