Conway is a compassionate city. Our firefighters recently traveled to Texas to rescue people during hurricane Harvey. I remember the community wide efforts to help hundreds of displaced New Orleans residents after hurricane Katrina. And there are dozens of local non-profits helping those in need.

I know that “God is in control — don’t give up on him, he has not given up on us.”
