We keep checking with our friends in the Southwest Region on how they are bouncing back from Hurricane Harvey. The reports indicate lots of efforts and holy thoughts on the nature of God’s resilient people.
Nora and I will be heading to Texas when the mission stations open. Hope some of you can make the journey with us.
Sadly, as the water has barely receded in Texas, as category 5 storm is heading toward our friends in Florida. 17 churches dot the Florida Region from north to south, and a couple, like the West Palm Beach church, look to be right in the thick of all the target maps.
I spent some time on their website and witnessed their energetic pastor inviting folks to know and love Jesus. His genuine honesty and love for people is very evident. Although I’ve never met Pastor Donn Brammer, I can see he is a passionate man that will do whatever it takes to help his friends and neighbors in the West Palm Beach area when the storm(s) have come and gone and one their damage.
I paused in prayer for Pastor Donn and the long road of recovery for the people of South Florida even before I know what will happen.
This I do know, I’m already planning my mission trips for 2018.
Looks like we may be on the road for a long stretch.
God is Good. My hands and heart still work. I offer prayers with these hands and will offer more when the call goes out.
