Day of Prayer

Instead of the scheduled SUYL - we are just taking a day to remember the victims of the horrible tornados this week and I also want to give you a few prayer requests. I'll put up a link list if you have a blog or caring bridge site you want to link to or just a request. This link list is a little different so you should be able to put your request straight on there (even if you have nothing to link to).

Here is a little info if you want to help the people of Alabama (or other states - like TN and AR - The red cross is helping all of these states) to help those in need. This site is set up through the Governors Office so it is a safe, secure site/way to give to disaster relief.

If you need help finding a loved one, the contact number for missing people in Tuscaloosa County is 205-349-2121.

here is a link to donation sites all over Alabama:

If your company would like to donate items or services please contact Frank McCrory with the EMA office through email (phone communication is limited as he is out in the field) OR call 211 (I believe this only works in Alabama though).

And lastly, again through the red cross:

Online: go to and click on the "donate now" link on the homepage

Call: 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and you will be prompted to a menu that includes financial donations

Text: "Red Cross" to 90999.

They also need blood donated badly to help the victims!

Other requests:

  • Pray for Alyssa, Erik, and their 6 month old baby, Jackson. Jackson was born with a congenital heart defect in October as well as Downs Syndrome. He received his first heart surgery 2 months ago and has been doing well from that. More recently though, some things were worrying his they took him to the doctore...they just found out on Good Friday that little Jackson has been diagnosed with leukemia.
  • Pray for the family of 3 year old Carley Collins from MS. She drowned earlier this month. They were able to give 8 of her organs to other children. What a gift.

I did want to share that the little boy in Russia I told y'all about, Vanya, has found a family who is going to adopt him. Thank you for making that happen!!!! PRAISE!!!!
