  • Hurricane Ike

    Please pray for everyone that was in the path of this storm.

    I'm starting a I don't like "Ike" club. just jokin.

    In all seriousness Ike hit my hometown hard.
    I live in Bridge City (Orange county) TX.

    My wife, our two kids, 13 yr. old lab and my parents evacuated to Idabel
    Oklahoma. I would just like to praise a small little church there that we
    visited Sunday morning trying to get our minds off the storm. The pastor
    gave a timely sermon and they really ministered to our souls. They even
    took up a love offering and was willing to put us up in their parsonage.

    I cannot thank them enough.

    My family is now stayin with some friends in Dallas. We're just now
    getting to an internet connection and I'm realising just how much
    damage Ike has done. Not just on the coast but a path through the
    nation. Yikes!

    Athorities are letting residents into the SE Texas area to begin the clean
    up. I hope to go tomorrow.

    I've been told that there was 3 to 4 feet of water in my house. My
    parents 1 to 2 ft. My grandmaw 6 feet. Just about everyone that I've
    spoken to had anywhere from 1 to 6 ft. of water. I hear it's a mess.

    This link shows some pictures of the area...

    The reality of the situation didn't hit me until we were driving in to
    Dallas...My wife looked at me and said we can fit everything we have now
    into the cab of this pick-up. I said yea...but it's an extended cab.
    I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work either.

    I guess at this point all I can say is...

    Job:21 And he said:

    “ Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
    And naked shall I return there.
    The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away;
    Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

    I'm praying that I lean on the Lord fully that He shall derect my steps.
    I'll give updates as I can.

    Please pray with me

    With love,
    KingFisher

    P.S. please pray for my wife, this has really hit her hard.
    When I say... "I am a Christian", I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin."
    I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven".

              Yes, please keep praying for the Houston Area... from what I understand, most of us are still without power- and those are the fortunate ones! The damage is very wide-spread and serious... I'm up in Abilene this weekend, but my family is still without power and I'll probably be bringing back some Ice and/or gas for family members so we can continue to drive and keep our food cold.

              Thank you for all of your prayers!

              Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again!
              I know now that you're my Only Hope...

                For all...

                Praying this morning as with others here my heart goes out to all of those who were in the path of the storm and those who are dealing with the aftermath. Strength and mercy for all in the Name of Jesus. Please God come to their assistance quickly.

                Amen and amen...

                is heard in our land

                  Hey, thank ya'll for all the prayers...

                  Man Bridge City is ugly. It was much worse than I expected. It stinks
                  too. I've never gagged so much in my life.

                  I had 4.5 ft. of water in my house. Most of my family lives in Bridge City.
                  I had one grandmother that had 6 ft. of water, the other had 1.5 ft. My
                  parents had 3 ft. , an aunt & uncle with 2ft. & a cousin with 2 ft. Mold is
                  growing everywhere.

                  Still, I can see God's grace working in these trying circumstances and
                  through His people. My dad I would say is an agnostic. He has a very
                  hard heart towards the church. The Lord used that humble little church
                  up in Oklahoma that I spoke about in the OP to tear down some fortified
                  walls.

                  My dad even wanted to send a letter thanking them for the heartfelt love
                  they showed for our family.

                  There's still alot of work to do so I guess I gotta go.

                  Please continue to pray...

                  May God's grace abound,
                  KingFisher

                        Thank You Lord for sparing lives....Amen

                        Continuing to pray for all those that suffered in the path of IKE...Kingfisher, your faith is a blessing...some would not be thanking the Lord or anyone else in these difficult times...May God's mercies continue to be with you and your family and all of those in dire straits.

                        Only God knows the end from the beginning..Prayerfully, many will be won to HIS Kingdom through the compassion of others, like the "little church" in OK!!! Amen. Praying, Kingfisher, for your dad...May he see the Light of the Lord in all of this..

                        Prayer is powerful, so we do send ya'll all of our prayers.Amen

                            Well most of the tear out is finishing up in Bridge City.
                            I'm seeing that this may be the hardest part...

                            Sure, the tear out was physically tough but now the work is slowing and
                            the mind is racing.

                            For the ones without flood insurance I've seen a helpless look in their
                            faces. There are some christian groups who have come in the area and
                            are begining to help them as much as possible. What a blessing it has
                            been to see their selfless sacrifice. Please pray for the uninsured and the
                            volunteer builders here to help.

                            For the ones with insurance it doesn't seem to be much better. I'm in this
                            group myself. I havn't recieved a settlement yet but the ones that I have
                            seen with some of my family is really low. For instance my anut & uncle
                            were given a quote from the insurance for $55,000 yet all the builders
                            they're getting quotes from are in the $90,000 range. Who's right?

                            I'm really trying to pray for God's will to be done in my life.

                            I'm a "planner"...In the past I've tried to plan all the details of my life and
                            usually only frustrate myself when thing don't work out and I have to
                            "replan". I've learned...ok, I'm still learning...

                            Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
                            And lean not on your own understanding;
                            6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
                            And He shall direct your paths.

                            I need ya'lls prayers in this area too.

                            Thanks,
                            KingFisher
