Iowa River Flood Update 2

From 3:00 to about 9:30 PM hundreds of people from Parkview, other churches, and our community showed up to help sandbag the church. It was a great picture seeing so many pitch in to help in a time of need. Unfortunately, we're only about half way in the sandbagging process. With the rain forecast, projections show us passing the flood of 93 levels so we're bracing for the long haul with this season of flooding.

Tomorrow (Monday) we'll be sandbagging throughout the day starting at 9:00 AM. VBS will go forward as planned, but may be cancelled later in the week as flood waters continue to rise. I'll post more later. Below are some pictures from todays sandbagging.

looks like the perfect time for an outdoor Baptism Celebration to me!

Been thinking about this quite a bit in recent days.
Remembering working side by side with you in preparation, recovery, and rebuilding. Your leadership, friendship, and trust will always be a part of what I take away from this event. I have always felt the God had a big part in putting me there at that time to grow in my dependence on Him and others of faith; such as you.
