Archbishop Beach provides an update on the relief efforts following hurricane Harvey, and asks for prayer for those in the path of Hurricane Irma.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This hurricane season seems to be particularly severe. I am writing to share with you some of the good news coming out of Houston, as well as to ask you to pray.
Please lift up those affected by these hurricanes. Although the exact trajectory of hurricane Irma is not yet determined, the Caribbean Islands are beginning to be hit, and Florida has already declared a state of emergency. Please pray for wisdom for all those facing difficult decisions, for government leaders preparing their communities, for individuals and families deciding whether to stay or evacuate, and especially for those who have no choice but to ride out the storm.
Please continue to pray for the victims of hurricane Harvey. Your generosity in caring for those recovering from hurricane Harvey continues to bring the love of Christ to those who have most needed encouragement. There are excellent reports from those coordinating the relief effort and you can hear some of them for yourself below:
