In recent weeks we have seen the effects of Hurricane Dorian’s devastation unfold in the Bahamas. We are currently watching as Tropical Storm Imelda is making its way through the Houston area and South East Texas and as we are still in the midst of hurricane season, there are more storms forming with paths that are not yet determined. As always we ask that you be in prayer for those affected by natural disasters and those who aid in the recovery efforts.
