With 31 counties in Texas declared a state of disaster, the need to provide disaster relief is overwhelming. However, we are hearing of huge needs in small towns where poverty is high and resources are limited. With how widespread the flooding is there is little focus on these areas and they need our prayers and support.
Mission U-Too has decided to send a team down to the Wharton, Texas area through the weekend and possibly longer. This town is located on the Colorado river and many areas of the town have been underwater for days.
Your prayers and financial support are very needed at this time. Pray for the flood victims, city leadership, and our team as they serve this small town. And pray about giving to help serve the many people who have been affected by this widespread flood.
We could also use more volunteers through the weekend. If you are interested in heading down to Wharton to help below are the details of where we will be.
Just Do It, Faith Recovery Center located at 1619 Martin Luther King Blvd, Wharton, TX 77488
This Friday, Saturday, Sunday (June 3-5, 2016) morning meet at 8:00 AM at Creekside Christian Fellowship located at 16628 TX-36, Needville, TX 77461 for a daily debrief.
We will be serving hot lunch and dinner each day to the impacted community. Please wear a hat, good shoes as there will be little to no sitting, and remember sunscreen and bug spray to keep yourself as comfortable as possible.
