The Second Flood at Watseka

For the second time this year (July and December) our little town is under water on the West side of town. Please pray for our neighbors, and for our stamina and that of the Red Cross volunteers. Our church is located on the East side of town and is on higher ground and we function as the Red Cross Emergency site. Tonight we will have at least 20 flood refugees staying over night.

Pray that our people, especially our staff and our members would display the sweetness of Christ to all who come through our building this week as we seek to give comfort, hope, and safety to those who have been displaced. Pray too for gospel opportunities and conversations. Below is a short video of some drone-footage of the flooded areas. The view starts on the West side of town and follows route 24.
