The lives of all the people living in Florida, the east coast of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina are valuable and precious to God. I have friends living in Savannah, Georgia, who have left their home and will arrive in Birmingham to stay with their family in Hoover, Alabama. I heard that I-16, the major interstate highway coming out of Savannah going west, is all one-way traffic to the west. No one is allowed to go east towards Savannah. It is always dangerous to travel on I-95. Advisories have been given not to travel north on I-95 since it is parallel with the hurricane.
I don't know how this hurricane will effect the Feast of Ingathering at Emmanuel College today at 10 o'clock in the John W. Swails Center. The Lord willing, Melvine and I plan to travel over to Franklin Springs, Georgia, for this annual event in which the Women's Ministries of our conferences east of the Mississippi River will bring their offerings to Emmanuel College. If I remember correctly, those in Mississippi and Tennessee will go to Southwestern Christian University November 3-5 for their Feast of Ingathering and their annual homecoming.
If you are present at the Feast of Ingathering at Emmanuel College this morning, we want to see you and talk with with you. We plan to stay for the luncheon. It is always a joy for Melvine and me to see our many friends we have made over the years of our ministry. And of course, we look forward to meeting new friends.
Disney World made the monumental decision to shut its doors on Thursday, October 6, as Hurricane Matthew barrels into Florida.
