Prayer concerns

Rachel Dixon's father, Robert Register, Sr., suffered a stroke last week. He has been at the VA, but will be transferring to Baptist Rehab today. Please keep him and the family in your prayers.

Rachel asks for prayers for their good friend Craig and his wife, Colette. Craig's twin brother, John died from melanoma complications on Sunday in North Carolina.

Tropical storm Isaac became a hurricane Tuesday that could flood the coasts of four states with storm surge and heavy rains on its way to New Orleans, where residents hunkered down behind levees fortified after Katrina struck seven years ago this week. May our friends on the coast be safe.
