While we are asking for prayers...I need to ask for more.

I am sitting in Wichita, KS going thru PT after having knee surgery on Monday. My wife, Kristen, and our production manager, Jon, are at our house in Indiana. They were do to head to Wichita today. They woke up this morning with our property flooded. They started getting things up out of our garage...and within 30 minutes they had two feet of water in the garage. Shortly after that, there was 3-4 feet of water in the garage and water in the first floor of our house.

Fortunately our truck was moved to higher ground. Our production manager's car is still in the garage along with three large illusions. These are all just things...Kristen & Jon are safe...As I write this they are stranded on the second floor of our house waiting for waters to recede. Our neighbor who has lived there 60 years, has never seen it like this before. Our propane tank has floated away. A 40' culvert, 24" in diameter, lying under 12" of gravel at the foot of our driveway over 150 yards from the house, has come up and is now resting against the house. Our county has been declared a state of emergency. Kristen is in good spirits...I am sad that I can't be there for her and that she is going through this.

Please pray that the water will recede quickly, that damage is minimal and that she stays strong.


Thanks-
Kevin

May God bless you each, and may you find comfort and peace in Him. As a former Indiana resident (from the most mildewy part of the state) I can empathize. We pray there is little damage, and that all is repairable.

I'll be praying for you, too, but like you said, they are just things. Regardless, this is still a troubling thing to have to endure.

There is a silver lining, though... At least Kristen is used to water... Smile

I also hope the PT is going well. They can be your best friends after everything is over, but during the actual therapy, it won't seem like it.

Please let us know if you have any immediate needs that we can help with.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Hi Kevin,

I am sorry to hear what you and Kristen are going through. I just finished praying for you both, along with your neighbors.
Here's hoping everything you do hits the BULLSEYE!

UPDATE:
Everyone is doing fine. The house is drying out. The culvert and propane tank have been reset. Kristen has been busy cleaning everything. Mud is everywhere. We did lose some illusions and pieces to others. Tons of financial records, photos, etc are lost. We did inherit other propane tanks, a lawn mower and other debris that floated to our house.

Overall we didn't have it as bas some people did. Thanks everyone for the prayers.

Thanks for the update, I'm glad it's looking up. We had a few of our churches receive damage from the floods and tornado...
