SPECIAL UPDATE ON HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF
As you all know Hurricane Harvey has caused significant damage to the gulf coast of Texas, including the Huston area. Bishop Grundorf sent out a message encouraging people to donate to Samaritan's Purse or other reputable charities until we hear of any immediate need with our ministries or ministry partners in the gulf coast area. These charities have rapid response groups in the region and are working to address the immediate critical needs of the people of Texas.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Fund
His Grace Foundation
I have a friend who works with His Grace Foundation - they are working directly with the Texas Children Hospital to provide relief there. There is more information on the website.
I have been in contact with Bishop Giffin, our episcopal visitor, and he said he and his family were doing fine but they had friends that were severely affected.
Even if you can't give, please keep the people of Texas in your prayers. The process of recovery is going to be a long and slow.
A Prayer for the people of Texas:
O GOD, merciful and compassionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who put their trust in thee; Graciously hearken to us who call upon thee, and grant the people of Texas help in this Their time of need; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Have a blessed week and see you on Sunday.
