Pray for Iowa and the Midwest

Eric Schumacher, pastor of Northbrook Baptist Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has asked us to pray for those who are suffering due to the storms and floods in his state. Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Teams are on the ground seeking to minister. Pray that the Gospel of Christ will be proclaimed in word and deed as brothers and sisters suffer with and minister to those who have been affected.

Praying, Tom.

Thanks, Tom.

We have two families in our congregation directly affected. One whose home was flooded. Another whose business is a complete loss.

Nevertheless, we had a sweet time of worship this morning, comforted by the Gospel.

Thanks for the update. May the Lord give you and others grace and strength to minister to those directly affected.
