Hurricane Ike hit us around 11:00pm on Friday, September 12. My family and I are safe and sound and survived with minimal property damage. Some of our neighbors weren’t so lucky.

Our hearts go out to them and it’s amazing to see neighbors bonding together to help other neighbors. We also thank God that we have power in the area where we live while so many others around us do not.

The good news is power is slowly being restored North of Houston and hopefully it will trickle downwards. To those who lost everything from Hurricane Ike, we will keep you in our prayers and may God give you the strength and hope you need to get through this difficult time.
