Help for Houston
As we watch the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey continue to unfold in Houston, we want to respond with compassion. Below are our current opportunities to respond; we will continue to update this page as needs change and events unfold.
As believers in Christ, this is our first and best response. Please pray for the community of Houston and all the responders, that the rain would stop, the stranded would be rescued, the waters would recede and loss of life would be prevented.
