Thank you for your continued prayers on our behalf. We are hoping that by tomorrow we will begin to see some clearer skies as this weather system moves past us.
Last evening, we endured heavy rains which are continuing into today. The sustained winds were not real high but there were occasional gusts of wind that became an issue.
On campus, we had a pine tree fall onto the new Student Welcome Center. This was an unfortunate circumstance, but even in this instance we can see the providential hand of God. Just last semester this was a men’s dormitory and we are blessed in the fact that no one was in this part of the building when the tree fell.
As the winds picked up last night, we took two precautionary steps to ensure the safety of the students.
We moved all students from Closs/Miller halls (our one-story residence halls) into the two-story residences
Due to some large pine trees being in front of Gray Hall, we moved all the girls down to the first-floor of this residence.
Please continue to pray for us. We are being told that conditions should begin to improve over the next 24-48 hours. We are primarily dealing with rain at this point. Our dormitories are positioned in such a way that flooding should not be an issue.
