#nationaldayofprayer “We came on the tractor because we wanted to come to church.” At Sunday services, messages of hope after Harvey’s wrath

At the Pine Forest Baptist Church in Vidor, Texas, along the coast about 110 miles east of Houston, 45 people gathered for a service in the parking lot, after the church was flooded in the storm.Pat Lawrence and her fiance, Jim Frasier, arrived on a tractor after navigating the floodwaters that had left some homes cut off, like islands.“You can’t hardly comprehend all the water that’s around,” Lawrence said.“My house is not flooded, but getting out is flooded. I’ve been in my house since last Saturday,” she added. “We came on the tractor because we wanted to come to church.”A few tears were shed.
