Today there is thanksgiving that
women on the reservation prayed

OKEECHOBEE, Fla. (BP)--The women sat in a cluster, their heads bowed, their faces creased in earnest pleading with God to bless their families, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
    Years later, there is thanksgiving.
    One of their answered prayers is First Indian Baptist Academy.
    "I used to be with those grandmas and great grandmas as they prayed for their families,” said Betty Luckey, a teacher at the school, “and now I'm getting to be with those very babies they had prayed for.
    "They're now young teenagers and preteens. … God is answering the prayers of the elders. He is blessing the kids."

NEW ORLEANS (BP)--It started as an almost normal Saturday at a somewhat crowded grocery store. Picking up snacks and water for his wife and two children, Walter Johnson, a student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, felt small concern for the coming storm. Over the next three days, however, normality fled, leaving him scrambling to escape the chaos following Hurricane Katrina.
