With a few more days of rain expected in the Houston area, the assessments are far from complete. However, reports are beginning to come in. Not all reports are bad. Many are hopeful. Still, unknowable numbers of homes have been flooded and lives have been turned upside down. Your help is needed.
Below are a few updates and pictures from Area D (Houston):
Pastor Seungwoong Ok writes "Due to Harvey, Hilltop was unable to worship on Sunday which was our 9th anniversary. Personally, my house and cars got flooded and my wife and I got evacuated with other first floor residence of Pine apt. yesterday. Now we are staying at one of our Elder's house. So far one of Hilltop's member also evacuated as well. I will keep you updated. I pray that God will be honored through this humbling experience."
Cristiana Emanuel recently remodeled their church building which is now flooded and a church member, Edwin Chavez, lost his vehicle.
