Ministering to Those Affected by Hurricane Irma

September 19, 2017

Hurricane Irma affected at least 1,200 Clay County Florida homes with at least 300 people marooned by the rising floodwaters. The Springs Church Jacksonville, along with support from World Challenge, reached out to its community to minister not only spiritually but practically as well. Two semi-trucks with supplies including diapers, water, food and cleaning supplies were given to those in need.

Hurricane Harvey, the largest rainfall event in US history, has dumped nearly 25 trillion gallons of rain, 19 trillion on Texas. This is enough rain to cover the entire United States nearly 1/2 inch deep. To think of it another way, if the Mississippi River were emptying into Houston, it would take 18 days for it to equal the volume of rain left behind by Hurricane Harvey. It may take weeks to drain and years for the people there to rebuild.
