As we here in Texas have been glued to the news stations for the last 48 hours, it’s been equal parts shocking, sad, humbling and encouraging. We’ve seen devastation caused by winds and rain, as well as the grief on people’s faces as they experience the loss of everything they have built and worked for. We have seen the extreme hard work and dedication of people who are committed to rescue, reporting, and assistance efforts. We have seen people coming out to help their neighbors, and others who are incredibly grateful just to be alive.
From all of us here in Texas, as we deal with the immediate emergencies and the aftermath that is still to come, please keep us in your prayers. We covet each one, and are incredibly grateful for all the people and agencies who are providing assistance in any way.
