Through an incredible partnership with Project Unity, NorthPark Presbyterian Church, Temple Emanu-El, and servants who just showed up to help, we were able to send over 200 clean up buckets and many more boxes of supplies to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Orange County, Texas. Your generous donations of sponges, scrub brushes, trash bags, clotheslines, tools, and so much more have made their way to East Gate Pentecostal Church in Vidor, Texas and was distributed by Southeast Texas Interfaith Organization. We are especially grateful to Shipper Owned Container, LLC for the generous donation of their driver and services.
As we have witnessed many more storms and natural disasters wreak havoc across Mexico, Puerto Rico, Florida, northern Lesser Antilles and Virgin Islands, we continue to hold in our thoughts and prayers those who are grieving the loss of lives, homes, and entire communities. Through our continued partnership with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, we hope to bear witness to the loving presence of God during this difficult time. We remember that God calls us to stand in the GAP:
Give of our financial blessings to help disaster survivors throughout the world.
Act through participating in disaster recovery ministry.
Pray for God’s presence on behalf of all disaster survivors.
For God promises us that if we work to meet the needs of those who are afflicted, then
“Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in” (Isaiah 58:12)
Thanks be to God.
