This letter is from the Regional USA/Canada Director and was sent out to all Pastors from our District Superintendent
This was an interesting “on the ground” narrative from our Regional director over USA/Canada;
Dr. Bob Broadbooks sent this note out to the DS’s today;
Good Afternoon DS Colleagues,
I write to you today from San Antonio. I spent yesterday visiting the devastation in Houston and surrounding areas with DS Jeffrey Johnson; Assistant DS Sam Flores; George Sisler, NDR leader; and Dan Jeter, the videographer. It was a sobering and moving experience. It will take years for the damage to be made right. We videoed scenes and taped a plea to the church; we anticipate that it will be available to show in our churches on Sunday. It will hopefully be posted on the NCM website Friday or Saturday. The bottom line is that we are asking our people to pray for our brothers and sisters in Texas and Louisiana and seek ways to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey by visiting NCM’s website and the South Texas District COTN website for instructions. Presently, the main focus continues to be search and rescue.
Jeffrey himself was in his home for 5 days and unable to get out of his neighborhood. His story is not unique. Fortunately, the Johnsons did not get water in their home. The district office has been flooded (no pun intended) with calls to help, and the team there is trying to carefully make a path forward. Yesterday, we were in an area where there was an active shooter situation in which a man was shooting at rescue boats. All of this to say, please ask your folks to pray. There are still 1,000 people unaccounted for, 37 deaths and rising, 400,000 homes damaged (just in Houston) and the storm continues up the coast into Louisiana. We know of 12 of our churches that were damaged, and we still haven’t been able to get into all of the churches to see the need.
Jeffrey, Sam, and their mates need our prayers. The Fountains in Louisiana do as well. The increased workload is immense. We need to pray for the safety of first responders. And we need to pray for the Lord to help all of us as we put our loving, generous, prayerful arms around the Gulf Coast.
Dr. Bob Broadbooks…
