Drilling Rig Explosion

By rdendy - Posted on 21 April 2010

The phrase *The Lord Works In Mysterious Ways* has a personal meaning now. The rig that exploded and caught fire last night was the one I worked on for the past 5 yrs. I was going to go back to work yesterday on Tuesday to fill in for a man who got a promotion. I wasn't there because the man who works opposite of me asked if he could take the first 3 days & I could come out Friday & work the final 4 days. I readily agreed so I would have more time at home. Our room is right next to where the explosion happened. Not sure if he made it off or not, details are sketchy at best. So please pray for the missing people and their families. I had a lot of friends on there and I don't how they fared.

Man Ricky I am glad you posted. I was really worried about you because I thought it had to be close to where you worked. Prayers sent for those who are injured and missing and their families. Thank God you were not there. You are blessed my friend.
