Tropical Storm Guillermo Update #4

Please pray for Guillermo to continue to weaken and move north of the main Hawaiian Islands.  The most recent forecast has the hurricane passing within a 150 miles of Hawaii Wednesday night and a 120 miles of Maui Thursday Morning, so the counties remain under a Tropical Storm watch at this time.  Please pray for people to prepare for the storm, and for all to remain safe during the storm.
