View Full Version : Hurricane "Ike"

Got an email from a friend who posts on this board...you may know him as DavidBuck

Well, I guess you figured out weather forecasters were off a few days ago. Storm headed to north east Texas coast and not the south west as they were saying. Hurricane Ike is hitting just west of my mother-in laws house right now. If you see any pictures from Surf Side that is pretty close though she lives about 12 miles inland. Storm will head right through Houston (where I used to live) then go to north Houston in Spring (where my sister lives) and then head northward where my mother lives. Then it is headed directly for us, though it should be a tropical storm by the time it gets to us. I would think my mother, sister, and myself will loose electricity. In other words, Ike is after everyone I know. You might not be safe either.

Reporting from Texas. Now back to the booth.

Pray for the people in Texas NOW!!!

Psalm 46 NKJV

1 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Hi all,

I am trying to find a good temp/volunteer job bringing back up the electricity in Hurricane Ike's path. I don't work for the electric company, but suffice it to say that I am a "skilled worker". Please pray that I can be placed right. Thanks!

My sister lives in Houston, TX and as you know Hurricane Ike went straight through her area. I've tried calling her to see if she is ok, but cannot get through so far.

Just asking for prayers that she is ok, and not just her, but all of those who could not get out the way of this hurricane.

Thank you for your prayers!
