My prayers to my friends on the Gulf Coast. I realize the focus has been on New Orleans, but the cities of southern Mississippi seem to have been overlooked. Back in 1997 I had the blessing of being able to live and serve in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, which was virtually destroyed by Hurricane Katrina when the eye of the storm passed over them. Now I read that once again, the eye of the storm is said to be aiming itself for the Mississippi coast. My heart aches, and my prayers go out to the Gulfport Stake and all other cities and towns along the Mississippi and Louisiana coast.
