As many of you know Faith Builders Ministry deployed to Houston with Eight Days of Hope.
My first impression as a rapid responder was Houston was much like Denham Springs, LA last year in that the infrastructure was intact (Unlike Katrina in Hancock Co. Mississippi) but the internal damage was tremendous both to property and people.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside the volunteer men and women of eight days of Hope and look forward to rejoining them in a week**. The ministry is well organized and lead by folks who care first and foremost for the people in the community not the job of “mudding” out homes.
They plan on being in Houston until at least October 15th so if you are interested in volunteer opportunities or wish to make a donation see the link on right side of this website.
Also here is a link to some pictures I took while there (when my phone was working) Houston Rapid Response Pictures
** Please note I have signed up to go to Puerto Rico, as we have still not heard from Naida’s mom (my mother-in-law) or any other relatives or our many friends in the Juncos area. This may affect my returning to Houston.
I ended up forming my own team and going from Puerto Rico from 01 – 24 Nov 2017 I will be posting a full update soon. We hope on going back for an extended rebuild mission.
