Harvey Relief

 
Hurricane Harvey originated off of the coast of Africa as a tropical storm in early August and made landfall on south Texas on August 26. This storm edged slowly east into the Gulf of Mexico before making a final landfall near Cameron, Louisiana, on August 30.
 
It has wreaked havoc on property, and lives as can be seen in the video and will take a great deal of time to recover from the devastation left in its’ wake.

Now our country is faced with yet another natural disaster as a string of tropical storms and Hurricane Irma approaches the southeastern coast of our country, including Florida, Alabama and the Carolinas.

Samaritan’s Purse is already dispatching supplies for the effort. 

Let’s pray that The Lord would continue to come up alongside all of those affected.

Calvary Chapel Elk Grove, in conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse and Calvary Chapel Houston, is raising relief funds for the hurricane response effort.
 

We will use this blog for donations, and to keep our fellowship up to date on ways to help, and for those who may be interested in volunteering to travel down to Houston to assist.

Many are asking –  How can I best help?
Pray!  Please Pray! The fields are white for harvest as people try to make sense of their lives amidst this disaster. Secondly, funds are needed for the relief effort as local churches and Samaritan’s Purse minister and provide aid ‘on the ground.’
