Our students and faculty continue to battle the aftermath of the storm – long lines for gas, food, and everything else. Many have power back on, but about as many continue to be without power. Our Admissions Director, Christine Williams lost her house, as did one student we know of so far. There may be other resports yet to come.
To help all on the Houston campus, we will not reopen on Monday as planned, but will continue the closure through Wednesday, September, 24th. We will be open for classes and administrative functions beginning on Thursday next week. Our classroom building there is fine, and power is expected to be restored today.
I have been watching the news reports of all the people displaced from New Orleans to Houston because of Katrina, and now are there to support the people of Houston in their storm. This morning, the verse of the day on my email was:
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:4
