Losing Treasures in the Terrible Storm …

Terri tells how she lost memories when her family escaped the terrible hurricane. They thought it would be like other hurricanes in needing to be away for several days then returning to clean up their home. Well the experience with Harvey wasn’t the same. Terri lost everything!

We continue to pray, give and act to help those on the Texas Gulf Coast in tremendous need.

Prayers for Houston …

From Facebook Messenger: Wayne Blaser, a former PMM Board Member, sent the following to me just a short time ago.

“Hi we are starting a prayer chain for all the people in Houston Texas please say a prayer and pass it on to as many people as you can. If you can’t pass this on please let us know so the chain doesn’t stop. Please just pass it on to as many people as you can. Prayers are needed!”

To go along with the prayer there is always a story at Media Mission. Desiree shares her story of being a teenager and her family escaping a powerful hurricane.

From Life After the Storm an award-winning audio series recognized by the Houston WorldFest as one of the finest productions capturing real life stories told by people experiencing life first hand and sharing their story of escape and rescue from your Presbyterian, United Methodist and Mennonite friends.
