TRC Hurricane Harvey Relief Team Update
October 18, 2017
Houston Area Efforts
We are excited for our Volunteer work day on Oct 21 with teams from the San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Houston area working in East Bernard. We plan to insulate and drywall trying to get more families moved back into their homes. We are very excited for the next week when Pastor Tyler Martin brings his Team from Virginia to spend a week being God’s hands and feet rebuilding what was lost. The plan is to complete a bedroom partial kitchen (working sink) and partial bathroom. This allows the family to move back into their home, we still will continue working to complete the whole homes as well.
Corpus Christi Area Efforts
We have been looking and praying for churches and organizations to partner with in this area. We found the group! The Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group. They share our goal to help restore the homes of the elderly, disabled, the poor, single parent families, and veterans. They are a nonprofit that has been working in the Corpus area for two years completing the rebuild effort after the 2015 floods. They welcomed us and would love to work together. The meeting that Sue and Dan Lincoln attended was very exciting because a surprise visitor had a gift for the organization. The grocery company H.E.B. sent a V.P. to present a $1,000,000 donation from the owners family to fund the start of rebuilding five counties in and around Corpus Christi.
God is at work in this disaster recovery. We follow His path and open the doors He puts in front of us. This recovery is estimated to take three to five years, and this group is committed to complete the task God has put before them, and we feel God calling us to join them in rebuilding what was lost.
