NAA held Conference & Show in New Orleans July 9-13. Hurricane Barry was predicted to hit the Gulf Coast and might be causing damage in New Orleans. On Wednesday morning, we had flash flooding. Many of the NAA attendees left to go home. We even had some Texans to leave on Thursday morning.
God promises us through his word: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
I left on Saturday and drove up through Mississippi to miss the storm.
