Ways You Can Help
One of the most important things we can do for those affected by Hurricane Harvey is to pray.
PRAY – Pray for the victims of Harvey. Many have been displaced from their homes. Some have permanently lost jobs.
PRAY -- Pray for the churches. Some have been destroyed. Others are damaged.
PRAY – Pray for Disaster Relief efforts and the many volunteers -- for their health, their stamina, and their service.
PRAY – Pray for opportunities for those ministering during disaster relief clean up to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Ask God to send laborers (Matthew 9:35) and to give the recipients of the gospel ears to hear, eyes to see, a heart to believe, and a will to respond!
