Hurricane Harvey: The Work Ahead (How to Donate)

David Nakhla

We thank the Lord that the rain has finally stopped falling upon Houston, despite having hit record levels for the continental US.  The disaster continues to unfold as some of the rivers have not yet crested.  Please continue to pray for the Lord’s mercy in this regard.

A number of families from two OP churches in the Houston area have been impacted by the flooding in various ways. This presents us with the opportunity to come alongside and help them to recover. 

Preparations Being Made:

First Teams of Volunteers:

The initial team(s) of volunteers will be put to work mucking out homes. It’s important to remove the contents and wet walls and floors as soon as possible. Once we have identified a Volunteer Coordinator, we will be able to begin booking volunteers. Stay tuned to the S.T.O.R.M. Report and Facebook for further details as they become available.

We are so thankful for the many offers of help and encouragement we have received from you. It truly is a picture of the body of Christ coming together to minister to one another. When one part hurts, the whole body hurts.

May God grant us wisdom and grace as we move ahead.
