Hurricane Ike update - 9:00AM Saturday

Update on Jonathan & Sarah Lee -
Their home in Pearland, TX is due south of Houston, south of the outer by-pass. They lost power about 8:00PM Friday night -heavy storm winds started about 2:30AM til 6:00AM Saturday morning. They slept(?) in their closet. Still raining @ 8:00AM, as back of the eye wall passed over. They still had cell phone service this morning @ 8:00AM, but are trying to conserve battery life.
Jonathan's brother, Matthew & his new wife, Emily, evacuated their home at Clear Lake, TX, which is closer to the coast. Early reports on Clear Lake indicate widespread flooding, but no specific reports regarding Matthew's home.
Many of the believers who fellowship at Manvel Bible Chapel (also south of Houston, and where Jonathan & Matthew fellowship) evacuated, and several of the believers lived down near Galveston.
Thnak you all for your prayers - more to come as the storm passes through this afternoon.
Scott & Kathy Leach
