posted by Mark Herringshaw

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano is erupting today. The floor of the Puu Oo crater collapsed on Saturday, falling dropping more than 350 feet. The fissure has caused lava to spew to a height of 80 feet. The eruption is the first of its kind in 14 years. The biggest danger to humans appears to be “VOG.”

Our family is currently living on the Big Island of Hawaii. Volcanic National Park is 90 miles south of us. The eruptions impact on residents at this point will be “VOG” or volcanic “SMOG” in the atmosphere. It’s particularly dangerous for people with respiratory challenges.

“God we pray for protection for the 90,000 residents of the Island of Hawaii. Specifically, we pray for the elderly, the very young, and those with health problems. We pray that the fumes from the volcanic eruption would flow out to sea and away from populated areas. Your creation is wonderful and sometimes powerful and even terrible. We trust you. In Jesus!”

    The Mighty Lord will protect those who listen, not those who deaf to His words. Those who believe shall be safety ever for your gratefulness, that the Lord gives you. Amen

    I too pray to God that everyone stays safe. I have a good friend who lives there in HI. I hope she and her family are safe. With the problems in Japan, now Hawaii, is this the beginning of the starting of the beginning of the end? God is not pleased with his children due to all the evil doings out here and He will not allow things to keep on going as is as it shows in the Bible. I pray people change and learn to obey His laws. God bless Hawaii and its people.
