I apologize for the unexpected break from blogging … I have no excuses other than just not getting around to it!

Until I get my thoughts organized and have something at least somewhat meaningful to share, here are some pictures from yesterday.  Hurricane Ike passed through Owensboro during our morning worship service, and the pictures below show the damage done to Yellow Creek Baptist.

Much more damage has been done throughout Daviess County.  To see a brief news clip from WFIE, go here.

We were without electricity for only about eight hours, but many of our friends still do not have power.  A tree fell on our pastor’s house, and many other friends’ homes also sustained damage.  City and county schools are closed again tomorrow, due to lack of electricity.

Our thoughts and prayers also go out to our friends in Louisville who are dealing with much the same situation that we are.
