As many of you are aware, Houston and the greater metro area surrounding Houston, were hit with Hurricane Harvey this past weekend. With it, Harvey dumped 30+ inches of rain in certain places. This was before the storm turned back into the gulf, re-energizing and spinning back toward Louisiana. There’s no question this is one of the most disastrous storms the United States has seen this year. But it’s possibly the worst storm we’ve ever seen. So we want to be a part of the Houston flood relief.
We would be remiss to plan an event called “For You” and not attempt to use our influence to help provide as much relief as we can. Being a small team in Nashville, TN with no-one on the ground in Texas, we called our friend Stephen Brewster at Freedom House Church and asked if we can help in their efforts to provide relief to the hundreds and thousands affected by the storm.
Their team setup a website: FreedomForHouston.com as a portal for you to join in prayer and partner in faith as they help those in need. We’d like to ask you to join with our team in helping the Houston flood relief efforts, so we can be a global expression FOR HOUSTON.
We are well aware that many of you are part of a local church that has already initiated a relief plan of their own to help those in need. If that is the case, please support your local church efforts first. However, for those not in the United States, or those part of a community that may not be doing something tangibly, we invite you to participate with us in this effort to help.
I’ll never forget what Kelly Portnoy (from The Good Story) said to our SALT conference in 2016: “Not everyone is called to the mission field, but everyone is called to live mission-ally.”Not everyone is called to the mission field, but everyone is called to live missionally. Click To Tweet
So lets give to the Houston Flood Relief and step into the missional life we’re all called to be. Lets be FOR those who are hurting right now.
Lets be FOR HOUSTON. As we embark on FOR YOU tour.
And lets be the tangible expression of those wanting to help in this desperate time of need.
