Preparedness Notes for Tuesday – August 29, 2017

Please continue to pray for everyone in Texas and Louisiana that are being pummeled by massive rains from tropical storm Harvey. It has been predicted that some folks will be stranded in their homes for many weeks because of flood damage to roads and bridges. This certainly brings the importance of food storage and water filtration into focus!

August 29th is a mournful day, as we remember the anniversary of the death of “The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” – Isaiah 40:3. John, the Baptist, who heralded the first coming of our Lord and stood true to his belief in the face of death, was beheaded on this day in 29AD.

In 1862, the Battle of Bull Run in Virginia began, along with the establishment of the  U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
