Emergency Hurricane Harvey 2The flooding from Hurricane Harvey is already at historic proportions after making landfall as a Category 4 hurricane–wreaking havoc with 130 mph winds and storm surges. Residents of communities throughout Southeast Texas and Houston–America's fourth largest city–are witnessing unprecedented and devastating destruction. While Southeast Texas has endured the first wave of this disaster, Louisiana and other areas along the Gulf Coast are also in danger. We are working with our local partners as they develop their relief efforts–and stand ready to assist wherever possible. Please join us in praying for all those struggling to survive this terrible storm–and if you can, click on the link below and make an emergency gift to help us aid in the relief efforts. Thank you, as always, for your compassionate support.
