flood relief for hurricane harvey
We are heartbroken for our Houston friends and the many who have suffered such great loss following Hurricane Harvey. We are joining with churches and communities across the nation to lift them up in prayer.
There are many organizations traveling to Texas to help families who have been displaced by the historic flood waters. Some of these organizations are doing a great work. Others, however, accept funds and very little of the funds are passed on to those directly affected.
Family Church networks with churches across the nation and there are many that we know personally who have been affected, and are still standing ready to help their communities. They are:
life church, houston, tx
Life Church is wonderful church that serves Houston. (You should check out another incredible ministry they founded, Ima's Home, an orphanage for homeless children in the Philippines.) Pastors Jim and Nancy Kilgore are loving pastors and encouragers to so many. Their church, as well as their own home, have flooded and they have lost so much. Other churches in the community have come together to help them clean up their church and they are now sheltering displaced families there. Their church website is www.life.cc and you can give there. If you would like to keep up to date about their progress, visit Pastor Jim Kilgore's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/james.kilgore.5836
