Wordless Wednesday – A Helping Hand

Hurricane-Harvey-Relief-sign-bw1

Well, it’s not quite “wordless” after all today, but the events and the emotions of the past couple of weeks have just been awful.  Thankfully, all my people in the affected areas are safe with only a little damage, but everyone’s nerves and emotions are shot, including mine, and I’m not close to the devastated areas.  They are still overwhelmed and short on supplies, and I can hear the frustration and fear when I talk to some of them.  Their stories are just unbelievable.  Our friends know a man that died in the storm, too.

I’m glad I’ve been able to actively participate in a local relief effort.  Our supplies arrived yesterday at a church in Friendswood, three charter bus loads full.  I want to do more.

Please continue to pray for Texas.

Texas is now praying for everyone in Irma’s path.

    1. I agree. Now is the time to come together and help those who’ve been devastated, both physically and emotionally. Sacrificial giving on our part in resources and time. I just wish I was closer to help more.

  1. So sad and heartbreaking to see the quaint towns of Port A and Rockport damaged. We’ve been in communication with our Missouri friends whom we rendezvous with each winter and trying to find a way we can still visit the Gulf Coast and potentially help rebuild ‘our’ RV Park in Lamar. Lamar won’t have electric for another month and thus don’t want people showing up for a while. We’d be more of a burden than a help until they get the infrastructure back up and running 😪

    1. Yes, that would be a lovely way to pay back to them, if you can do that at some point. I think that is what is going to be most needed going forward as soon as the most immediate health concerns are taken care of. I hope to find a way to go serve in one of these communities when things clear up for us “outsiders” to go in and not be a burden.
