Pastor Cover, Arise Baptist Church, wrote the following updates.
“More than 32,000 residents remain in Texas shelters. As many as 40,000 homes may have been damaged in Houston and Harris County alone. Almost 210,000 people have registered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency for assistance.”
“We are working with three different churches that have been flooded. I have been in contact with all of the pastors. Their biggest need at their churches will be finances to get them repaired. I have given all of them the ORH forms. We have several folks who have been flooded out that we are going to be able to help as well. We are working to get the list compiled of people that need help. I have pastors helping me with this now. I am in contact with several churches around town and have a place for the items arriving to go. I am waiting on the address and information for the loading dock but we now have a forklift, operator, and dock all promised to us. We need help organizing trucks, trailers, etc. to coordinate the delivery of supplies to those in need.”
Jeanie Mauch Cummings sent a message through facebook which was kind. Jeanie is not the only one who helps us. We have several who constantly share our updates. In our next updates, we will mention some of these special people. Read what Jeanie wrote.
“Love to see these churches put faith into action William and Shandi Cover & David Harris and Operation Renewed Hope with Jan Milton are bringing in truckloads of cleaning supplies, food, water and people to help with cleanup and providing necessities.
