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.

Just Imagine...

The house was only the basic frame so you covered the outside with boards. Now you live in the structure, which has no shingles on the roof and only studs for walls. There is no running water inside so your family uses buckets for bathing and flushing. You have only one bed, an old refrigerator, and a stove. You are thankful for the job you have, but there is no extra money to finish the house.

Cleaning Up After Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina – You Can Help

You Can Help! World Renew Disaster Response Services (DRS) volunteers helped North Carolina families clean out their flooded homes in October and November; more are helping in December. We, along with our United Methodist partner in North Carolina, anticipate that clean up alone will take six months. Volunteers are welcome and needed between December 2016 and March 2017. Will you be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who survived Hurricane Matthew?
