Our pastoral team has reached out to our networks to see how our ministry could best support the efforts to help the people of Texas. We have determined our ministry can have the greatest impact in providing help in three areas: Money, Manpower and Supplies.
We will provide direct financial support to two organizations that are close to our ministry:
1. Word of Restoration International Church in Rosharon, TX, led by our friend Pastor Charles Perry. Word of Restoration is a thriving 2000 member church. Hundreds of their members have lost everything and are displaced. Our financial support will help meet immediate needs these families are facing.
2. Samaritan’s Feet in Charlotte, NC, led by our friends Manny & Tracie Ohonme. Genette and I serve as chaplains of this organization, which supplies shoes all over the world. They need financial support to send 20,000 pairs of their “world shoe” to Texas. World Shoes have anti-microbial medicine built in the shoe to prevent foot-borne disease.
We will provide manpower to Worldwide Evangelism, a disaster relief team led by our friend Ron Harris. He will be organizing short term trips to Texas to help with clean up and rebuilding efforts over the next several months. More details will be coming.
Ron Harris has requested immediate help with the supplies they need as they go into Texas to help them recover. Below is a list of the specific items they need. You can drop them off at Restoration Church of Northwest Arkansas beginning this Sunday, September 3 through September 10:
Blankets, pillows, folding sleeping cots, sleeping bags, pillow cases, tents, electric fans, ice chests, coolers and cleaning supplies.
