Hurricane Harvey has ravaged Texas. 39 inches of rain fell in a 5 day period, with wind speeds reaching 130 miles per hour. In the wake of the devastation, communities are coming together to help one another. It’s a beautiful example of human kindness and the bonding that occurs during a crisis.
I watched images of grocery stores with empty shelves where water should be. I am awe struck by the fact that cities no longer have clean water to offer those that are trying to move forward. The Quenching Well was started to give people hope, by providing for the most basic need, water. And, yet, when a natural disaster, like Hurricane Harvey, occurs it completely changes what resources are available. It's a tragic irony that there is water everywhere, but it is not safe for drinking.
Today’s journal entry is a request to support those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. I encourage you to donate through ARC, a wonderful church planting organization, who are on the ground working with local churches to provide directly to the families in need there.
