Prayers - Fort Hood

I had planned to ask for prayer for the PWOC I Central Region and South East Region which both begin regional conferences this evening. I find myself really missing Central Region this week. They'd offered to bring me to conference as I am on their board until Sunday a.m. but I knew it would be too much traveling, too soon. It hasn't stopped me from praying for those planning, the speakers, the ladies who will attend....two of our board members are from FT Hood....

I woke up this a.m. to see the news about FT Hood in my inbox....praying. Please pray with me for safety, for peace, for healing, for comfort....and for those ladies who may have already left for conference and whose families were on post when this happened.

Oh goodness - hadn't heard that....I'm all mixed up on times. I AM relieved to remember that I'm a day ahead and so there wasn't a busload of women on their way to MO for PWOC conference when this news broke.....praying, praying. So very sad and hard.

They just now about 7:30 pm central standard time, ended he lock down. No word if they found a 4th shooter or not. I'm just happy that my sister can go home now.... It's still not clear exactly what's going on.
