Our response to both hurricane Harvey and Irma should be the same: compassion. The people devasted by these events have tangible needs that we can help meet. The compassion and empathy we extend should push us to sacrifice the resources we have.
Partnering with local A29 churches in the Houston and Jacksonville areas we can have a direct impact in the recovery effort. There are three ways to help:
Praise God that unity and collaboration amongst churches in Houston and Jacksonville have been great. Pray for our Acts 29 churches as they have a unique missional opportunity to be the visible church, serving people in need.
