Ted, Just a note from Ft Hood TX to Thank our many friends and family there in Cville who have been in prayer for us here at Ft. Hood TX. Working on Ft. Hood last Thursday I was grateful for all the phone calls I received concerned for my immediate welfare. I was fine. Yet my co-workers and I spent 6 hours on lock down and half that time guarding the doors to the hangar for intruders, not knowing what type threat we were dealing with. Please continue to pray for heal physically and emotionally as we recover and try to regain a sense of safety as we go about our daily activities.
