As we lift up in prayer the people of Texas dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we have been in contact with local and national relief agencies that are, and will be, coordinating relief efforts. We are planning on sending a relief team to help with the recovery efforts, once things become organized in the days and weeks ahead. Recovery efforts may include cleaning of homes, carpet removal, sheet-rock removal, delivery and sorting of supplies and some construction work. Some trauma counseling may be involved, having people experienced in this area would be of help.
We are also in contact directly with some of the local Christian ministries in Victoria, TX, and will be providing some financial relief. If you would like to contribute financially to help with the hurricane relief, simple write a check to GBC and note in the memo line “Hurricane Harvey Relief”.
As details of the needs and opportunities are available, we will pass them along over the coming days.
- Pray for the people of Texas, the emergency workers and disaster relief care givers
- Pray about going to serve the people as opportunities arise over the many months of recovery that lie ahead
- Pray about giving to disaster relief – we are taking donations – simply mark your contribution “Hurricane Harvey Relief”
