How You Can Help Harvey Flood Victims


If you have been praying about what to do to help flood victims in Houston and other towns in the path of Hurricane Harvey, I have a great opportunity I want to share with you.

As many of you know, before moving to the Dallas area in 2008, we lived in Houston for 25 years. Houston Northwest Church, the church where we were members the last seven years before moving, was flooded last week in all of their buildings but the Worship Center.

Pastor Steve Bezner is committed to helping the community beyond their church to rebuild after this disaster from the flood. They have started a Harvey Relief Fund. 

If you are like me, I knew I wanted to do something to help but didn’t know what to do. I know the Red Cross is a good organization, but with this relief fund through Houston Northwest Church, all the donations will go to help Houstonians in need and it will be moved along much more quickly than national organizations, and without all that overhead.

I hope you will watch this video Loving Our City Through Harvey as the pastor explains his heart for helping the community. The first 1:15 minutes of the video is an excerpt from ABC News, but then it switches to the pastor on the campus of the church.

I also recommend the video The Friday Update (below) where he takes you through a tour of the buildings and the damage, and it will give you a better idea of the damage done to homes and the major undertaking it is to recover.

Randy and I and our daughters can vouch for this church. We plan to give to their relief fund and are telling everyone we know about it and are hoping many of you will consider it. Please pray about what God would have you do to help the victims of this flood.

The page to make your donations is at www.welovehou.com, a link that is mentioned in the video and the information is on the page below the video.

Thank you for letting me share this opportunity to give to the flood victims and please pass this on to others who are also praying about how to help.
