READ THIS TO GAIN UNDERSTANDING ABOUT OUR TIMES
White House Correspondent William Koenig connects the dots about the current crises facing the U.S. and the world.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed… (2 Cor 4:8-9 ESV)
We must continue to pray for the people in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina who have been greatly impacted and devasted by Hurricanes Michael and Florence over the past few weeks. These record setting hurricanes, Florence for the massive rains and flooding and Michael for the third most powerful hurricane at landfall in U.S. history, have affected lives beyond our comprehension.
Last year’s Month of Elul Hurricane’s Harvey, Irma and Maria and Florence and Michael will be in the top 10 costliest hurricanes in U.S. history.
The last time we had so many major record setting hurricanes was in 2004 (Charlie, Jeanne, Frances and Ivan) and then 2005 (Katrina, Rita, Wilma and Dennis). One thing they have in common is that they all occurred during active peace efforts. George W. Bush was promoting the “two states for two peoples” in 2004 and 2005 and President Trump (and his son-in-law Jarred Kushner) the deal of the century in 2017 and 2018.

The last nine days that we have observed are classic examples of periods of disruption.
Trump peace envoy Jason Greenblatt said it “was a pleasure” for him and the president’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner to meet with senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Bob Corker of Tennessee, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Jim Risch of Idaho, Ben Cardin of
Maryland, Chris Coons of Delaware, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Robert Menendez of New Jersey, and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. Their meeting took place Thursday, Oct. 4, on Capitol Hill.
The following day Orlando’s News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges pointed to an area of low pressure near <https://www.clickorlando.com/topic/Honduras> Honduras <https://www.clickorlando.com/topic/Honduras> that then had a 60 percent chance of tropical development over the next five days. “Although strong winds in the upper levels are located just to the north of the system, the upper-level environment is expected to be conducive enough to allow for some minimal development,”
News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.
Bridges said, “A tropical depression could formulate this weekend or early next week over the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southern Gulf of Mexico.”… (To read the full article Click Here by Bill Koenig, White House News Correspondent.)
