Tropical Storm Cindy (03L)

With the naming of  03L to Cindy the Southern District Disaster Response Network has been activated.  All reports indicate that the wind speed will not exceed 45 mph but the east side of the storm will produce heavy rain, up to 10″ in some areas of the district.  Pastor Ed Brashier is in ready mode.  When the storm passes you please check in with your pastors and pastors with your Circuit Visitors and give a status report.  We pray for safety for all in her path.
