Prayer Request

George, the eldest son of one of my elders at church, is a college student in Washington D.C. studying international affairs or something similar. This summer he was studying abroad in Beirut, Lebanon. The last information I heard was that his school was trying to evacuate the students to northern Lebanon. I know that he has communicated with his parents since all the fighting began, but I can't even imagine what it is like for them as they wait to know details. So, please pray for George and his fellow students, his parents Cooter & Claire and brother JB as they wait to hear encouraging news.

update Tuesday 7-18-06: in case you haven't read the comments here, news has been received that George is currently on a boat headed to Cypress. Praise God!
