On the Ground After the Hurricanes

Kevin is normally a calm unruffled man, but he spent a terrifying night riding out Hurricane Harvey in his boat in his garage. He heard a banging on the garage throughout the night. In the morning, he realized it was his truck floating in his yard, knocking against the garage. Almost everything in his house and garage was ruined by water.

Stand in the Gap!

The World Renew 2017-2018 Gift Catalogue is a way to “stand in the gap” on behalf of people who face oppression and poverty. Each duck, seed, and water pump is a powerful intervention that can repair harm and help build resilience in peoples’ lives. Praying for and helping others is the stuff that holds us together as followers of Jesus Christ, even as we are standing in the need of help and prayer ourselves.

Harvey continues to drop incredible amounts of rain in and around the Houston, Texas, area. The situation is changing each day, and the related flooding has put thousands of people at the mercy of air and water evacuation crafts. The National Weather Service in Houston reported that, "After checking the rain gauge, a new daily rainfall record was set at 16.08 inches, beating yesterday's record of 14.40 inches." Houston alone has received half of its annual rainfall over the weekend.
