Pray for people in low-lying areas that are experiencing flooding due to Hurricane Nicholas. The disaster relief organizations that have been working to feed people, cut trees, cover leaking roofs, etc. will now have new issues to address with the flooding. Feel free to help others at this time. Here is a link to La. Baptist Disaster Relief that would be able to put your donations to good use.

100% of the money you donate will be used to overcome natural disasters.
