Real People Need Your Real Help Right Now
This morning I participated in an Executive Report for Pastors meeting at Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) who's mission is "Churches of Greater Austin Bringing Hope into Crisis". ADRN has been actively engaged in hurricane relief days before Harvey hit the coast. They shared some very specific ways the people of Austin and greater community can contribute to help the hurricane survivors.
- For survivors, that God would show Himself strong to them in the midst of their need.
- For those responding, that God would give divine wisdom, strength, and provision.
- For an abundance of finances and donated goods; that their needs would be met, and more.
To give towards hurricane relief efforts in the Austin area that are supporting local shelters to provide for the thousands of homeless arriving in Austin daily I recommend Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN). Visit them at adrn.org/give
To give towards coastal areas hardest hit by the hurricane I recommend Convoy of Hope. Visit them at convoyofhope.org
