Vera:  Where has your evacuated sister gone?  Does she need anything?  Let me know if there is anything I can do for her...

Blessings in Christ's mercy,


Work for the Lord:  the pay isn't much but the retirement is out of this world!

Mardi,<br>My Sisters are in Iowa City. One is just North of the
auditorium - they<br>have been evacuated. The other is in safer area
more south and west. Have<br>they opened up the reservoir yet? They told
her she would be un-housed for<br>probably 8 weeks if no more
rain!<br>Vera<br><br>On Wed, Jun 11, 2008 at 2:44 PM,
