The new forecast models have Hurricane Ike going almost directly over College Station. So, please pray for our safety. Also, with the move northward (toward Houston) we will be seeing a large number of evacuees come into town. Evacuations are being ordered, some mandatory, and we could have more than 1 million people moving inland.
We already have hotels full and shelters are starting to see people. We currently have 20 disabled people and their caregivers at St. Mary's. There is a chance we could have many more.
We need your prayers and so do those fleeing their homes in the wake of this storm. Pray hard!
