hurricane harvey flood disaster relief

“Hope is all I can ask for. We need all rebuild assistance. We do not have the resources.” So wrote one of the many flood victims finding us on the internet and reaching out for help. These are cries for help from our Texas neighbors that I do not think God wants us to ignore…(Read More)

Harvey flood relief

It is no question we are living in extraordinary times. A once-in-a-1,000-year flood just pummeled Houston and surrounding areas affecting an estimated 100,000 households (and counting!) which could represent almost half a million Americans with lost or damaged homes. It is in these times that God calls ordinary people…(Read More)

Hurricane Harvey in Houston

On Sunday morning, those of us with homes and loved ones in Corpus Christi breathed a sigh of relief at the near-miss of Hurricane Harvey. We mourn for Rockport and the many people who lost homes and businesses as the eye of Hurricane Harvey passed right through. But those of us from the Coastal…(Read More)

Summer English classes are already in full swing for the Syrian refugees.

EAP Program Update

We are incredibly thankful to the sponsors who stepped in last fall 2016 to sponsor the Syrian children to enable them to attend school. We are halfway through the second semester, and are glad to see the Lord’s answers to prayer in providing for these kids. They are happy to be back in school…(Read More)

In recent days, there has been much controversy over the executive order signed by President Donald Trump banning some kinds of travel from seven Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Families have been separated. People who had longed to reach the US arrived, just to be told that they needed to return…(Read More)

winter relief for refugees

As I listen to the wind howling outside our home tonight, I am reminded that hundreds of thousands of refugees are experiencing the same chill of winter in these same mountains this evening. This month we are mid-winter in the Middle East, but still have several months to go until things truly warm up…(Read More)

Winter arrived with a sudden, days-long thunderstorm and drizzling rain that rolled into the country. The storm left snow-capped peaks in its wake, the first snow of the year, albeit at a high altitude. Everyone has been bringing out their diesel heaters, jackets and extra blankets (if they even have them) to stave…(Read More)
