HOUSTON (Christian Examiner) – Just a week following the devastating and historic Memorial Day weekend floods in Houston – volunteers with Disaster Relief Ministries for the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention have turned on their stoves to serve up 5,000 meals a day for those hardest hit.
“God’s in control, though. It’s a God thing. When we go out, God gives us the strength we need – it’s absolutely amazing”-Mildred Fuller, Harmony Hill Baptist Church, Lufkin, Texas
Southern Baptists are working in partnership with the American Red Cross to prepare the meals that are placed inside about 20 official vehicles that are dispatched to locations throughout Houston with much needed food and water.
The warm meals will be taken to shelters, personal residences, neighborhoods, and nursings homes — anywhere there are people whose lives were abruptly changed when murky floodwaters invaded their living and work spaces to create chaos.
