Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
Hurricane Harvey has caused severe damage and historically high flooding in all of Southeast Texas and Louisiana. As the rain continues, we can anticipate more devastation and rescue efforts in these areas.
Hope For Houston Now List of donation items:
Bottled Water, Box Fans, Face Masks, Work Gloves, Safety Glasses, Pry bars/Crowbars, Flat Head Shovels, Pick Axes, Hammers, Yard Rakes, Chalk Lines, Utility Knives & Replacement Blades, Tape Measures, Large Push Brooms, 5 Gallon Buckets, Heavy Duty Trash Bags, Sunscreen, Insect Repellent, Anti-Bacterial Wipes, Sledge Hammers.
We feel a pull on our hearts to do something, and we rise to answer that call. Here are some immediate ways to help:
God is fully present in the midst of the storm offering strength, comfort and hope. Pray for First Responders who are working tirelessly to rescue and assist those in need. Pray for the ERT (Early Response Teams) as they prepare to go into the affected areas. Pray for those who have evacuated with an uncertain future. Pray for those watching the rising waters fearful they will need to be rescued. And pray for friends and family who are feeling helpless to do anything for those they love.
Prayer connects us across the miles with God's grace flowing deeper and faster than the flood waters rising.
