Hurricane Harvey is causing unprecedented and catastrophic flooding in southeastern and south central Texas. With 62 counties under Texas’ disaster declaration, widespread evacuations, 316,000 power outages, and more than 2,000 water rescues since Sunday evening thus far, damage will be of historic proportions.
The Love Mercy Do Justice mission priority, in concert with the Mid-South Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church and Covenant World Relief are partnering to meet immediate needs along the Gulf Coast. Together, we can be a part of alleviating the pain and suffering of those most immediately affected through the provision of evacuation assistance, temporary shelter, food, water, and other felt needs.
The generous giving of Covenanters will enable the church to continue to respond as long-term recovery efforts are launched. We are committed to standing alongside Covenant churches and their partners on the ground in this time of urgent need.
