Hope in Motion:

As written above, at times, we must carry each other’s burdens.  How do we do that for this situation?  Maybe it’s a donation to The American Red Cross.  Maybe it’s service through a favorite charity that will help.  We each have our own preference.  But the greatest is prayer.  Will you join us in praying for our brothers and sisters on the East Coast during this time of devastation?   We have followers of this ministry who are in the middle of this destructive storm that is overtaking their lives. We pray that in their time of need, that God is both revealed and a source of strength.

    Just wanted to say a thank you for all of the prayers. We’ll all be needing even more. I’m here in Brooklyn, NY, and unable to go work. My job at the Academy is at 7 World Trade Center, and as I understand it, the lobby has only recently been drained. We are shaken, but we are hopeful and safe. My prayers to go out to the families that have lost loved ones.

    1. Stephanie, thank you for responding. Our prayers will continue as we know this devastation will not be over anytime soon. Your words, “we are shaken, but we are hopeful and safe” speak volumes. As the readers of this blog are stretched out over the country and the world, if there is a need on your end, please contact us and we will help. God bless Stephanie and may His strength be your strength in these coming weeks and months.
