Destruction, flooding impacting MILLIONS!
Hurricane Harvey is a natural disaster the likes of which the National Weather Service says it has never seen before.
The reports are staggering:
… and it’s NOT over — not by a long–shot.
6.8 MILLION people have been affected so far
RECORD-BREAKING rainfall — over 50 inches — has fallen around Houston, the fourth largest city in our nation
Local officials in Texas have reported at least 60 confirmed and suspected flood-related deaths
30,000+ people have been displaced by the storm's destruction and flooding
The number of homes destroyed is yet uncounted — as one news headline declares, “Harvey spins deeper inland; full scope of damage is unknown.”
450,000 need emergency disaster relief
While Federal agencies have been dispatched, the need for aid is insurmountable by them alone. FEMA says citizens MUST get involved in this “landmark event.”
Our teams are already on the ground. Bridge of Hope is already taking action — rushing in fresh water, food, and emergency supplies in enormous quantities — meeting the most pressing physical needs — bringing hope through Christ!
But WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE sow a generous seed–faith gift right now to reach out to hurricane victims immediately.
Late Friday evening, Harvey made landfall on the southeastern coast of Texas as a category 4 hurricane with 130 mph winds causing widespread devastation; the fiercest hurricane to hit the United States in 13 years, and the strongest and most powerful on record to hit Texas since Hurricane Carla in 1961.
The rescue efforts resemble the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, with flooded freeways, helicopter and airboat evacuations, and submerged neighborhoods.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott says one of the major and most immediate needs is for food and clean water — and that’s exactly what Bridge of Hope is rushing to provide.
Your generosity will help send 100,000 pounds of desperately needed emergency relief like water, food, supplies and more … and help Pastor Parsley continue to preach the Gospel through our Breakthrough television broadcast.
We have a commitment to and rich history of responding to disasters with practical help for the victims, freely given in the name of Jesus, who commanded us to respond to the less fortunate as we would respond to Him (Matthew 25:40).
Please pray for the victims, and be as generous as possible today to help them … Thank you!
