FOR MOST OF US, Hurricane Hermine* and Hurricane Matthew** are a distant memory - if we think about or remember them at all. But hundreds of households on the east and west coasts of Florida are still struggling to repair their homes. They have little or no resources and many have lost hope of ever living in a safe and secure home again - without damage, without mold. And the 2017 hurricane season is upon us.
WILL YOU AND YOUR CHURCH HELP?
Volunteer wor/k teams are needed to assist with home repairs. It might be new flooring, replacing drywall, minor roof repairs or even replacing roofs. Can't work but want to help? Please consider doing a fund raiser to help purchase supplies and materials for the work. Provide financial support for a team from your church or another church coming to help. Pray. Pray that God will bring the teams, the materials, and most of all the hope that comes from neighbors helping neighbors. Who knows? You may be the one who shows them Jesus.
