I moved to Dallas in 1985. And this area is super flat too. Just imagine that much rain falling here with the ground saturated and nowhere for the flood waters to quickly go.

I saw a picture of the roof of a home that was just…

Hi John this is Biju Mathew from India. I am into TV Production and Media Training. Looking for partners to involve in raising an ARMY of Media Missionaries in India & Other countries. Since it is the end times I surely believe Media has a big role to play; moreover as Media Missionaries we are having a very big task ahead of us. If we can join together to impart the knowledge in raising Media Missionaries around the globe the evangelism will be more effective. Let us prayerfully work for it
