I'd like to ask everyone to pray for us and for our city. I live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which - as you may know - has been pretty much wiped out by the recent flooding. No, the buildings still stand, but our downtown is a wreck and it will be a long time before everything is back to normal. We've pulled together and I am so amazed by this city (I lived elsewhere in the Flood of 93 and did not see this kind of compassion and strength). Two of our Catholic churches, including the oldest Czech church in the area, were damaged in the flood. I'd like to ask for prayers as we clean up and that God will be seen in both the destruction and in our strength and community spirit. Thanks!
