PRAYER REQUEST:

Two friends of mine, Jeanne and Alex, have relatives missing in the region. Jeanne's mother and grandmother are missing in Mississippi, and Alex' grandmother is missing in the New Orleans area. We covet your prayers for the health and safety of those missing family members, and for them to have an opportunity to communicate with their family members here in California.

UPDATE: Jeanne has contacted me to tell me her family is now all accounted for. Please keep praying for Alex' maw maw.

UPDATE2: Saw both Jeanne and Alex last night. Jeanne's family, though all survived, have lost their homes. Alex still has not heard new of his family. This weighs heavily on their hearts, as anyone can imagine. Please keep them in your prayers.
