Hurricane Harvey, the largest rainfall event in US history, has dumped nearly 25 trillion gallons of rain, 19 trillion on Texas. This is enough rain to cover the entire United States nearly 1/2 inch deep. To think of it another way, if the Mississippi River were emptying into Houston, it would take 18 days for it to equal the volume of rain left behind by Hurricane Harvey. It may take weeks to drain and years for the people there to rebuild.
Kelly and I have been watching the reports of devastation in the aftermath and are brokenhearted as we see the pain and loss experienced by our neighbors on the Texas, and now Louisiana coast. It is amazing to see the expressions of love as neighbors are helping neighbors recover from this disaster. Even in the face of unimaginable disaster and the loss of everything we know that the Lord can bring hope. Please join us as we are praying for those affected by the storm.
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Ps 34:18
