Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane-Harvey

Since Hurricane Harvey made landfall, more than 30,000 people have fled to Houston shelters and even more have been displaced from their homes, seeking shelter elsewhere. As the floodwaters finally start to recede, Real Impact Missions is sending teams to partner with local churches in relief efforts. If you’d like to join a team, click HERE

If you can’t go, your help is still needed! Be in prayer for the residents of Houston and all of the emergency and relief workers who have been tirelessly helping those affected. Pray for our teams as they go down to be the hands and feet of Christ in the coming days and weeks. For the relief Project, funds are also very much needed.
