Hurricane Matthew and City Reach

Have you noticed there is a hurricane stirring up trouble in the Atlantic? I know the media is salivating over the possibility of a major hurricane hitting the US and I certainly do not want to feed that hysteria. But this is a real storm causing real damage and killing real people. 

The tracking is all over the map but as of today it is projected to give at least a glancing blow to the coast of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. 

This was the forecast as of 11:00 PM last night.

That is a lot of potential for trouble. I think it is worth asking God to steer that thing out to sea and into as much of nothing as He can find.

My personal concerns about hurricane Matthew are very minute compared to folks that live along the coast, but I do have a small vested interest in the path of this particular hurricane. We are planning to leave Richton, Mississippi early Monday morning and drive toward the Atlantic coast and up to Fayetteville, North Carolina for City Reach. We are supposed to set up the tent seven days from now and begin City Reach the next night.

Fayetteville is not a coastal town but it is only about 100 miles due north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The hurricane is forecast to be gone by early next week but if the coast takes a direct hit, there could be major after affects that would make City Reach difficult if not impossible. 

I hesitated even mentioning it here but it is a matter I am praying about and I would appreciate you joining me in prayer. We simply desire to have God's guidance in all of this. Thank you very much.
