Out of State Neighbors Show Love After Harvey

Thank you to each of these people and churches who have reached out in unique ways to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey

Hot Springs, Arkansas — One lady with a BIG heart wanted to do something to help after Hurricane Harvey. She started “Operation Harvey’s Heroes” and put out a plea via social media for supplies. Hot Springs responded generously and before she new it she was needing to rent the largest truck U-Haul offered to bring all the donations to Houston! In fact she has now made three trips to Houston with supplies of food, toiletries, diapers, pet food, cleaning supplies, baby clothes and more!  

This team not only brought donations, they helped with clean-up at Pastor Snow's house!

Lacombe, Louisiana —  Village Church-Lutheran asked, "What can we do to help in Houston?" They decided to raise funds and also use Thrivent Choice Dollars to help pay for food, which they brought to Houston to cook and prepare for neighborhoods suffering from flood related crisis. They cooked Jambalaya, a Louisiana comfort food, to bring hope and relief to people in need. They have blessed many people including the community surrounding LINC’s mission church Communidad de Gracia.

Words of encouragement bless many!
