Hurricane Harvey—the most powerful hurricane to hit the United States in more than a decade—left death and destruction in its wake with thousands of homes flooded, businesses lost, residents stranded, and dreams shattered. It will take years for the people of the Gulf Coast of Texas to fully recover from this record-breaking natural disaster.
This hurricane is personal for us as at Thirst Missions. Our president, Addie Pfingsten, was born in the Texas Gulf Coast region and has spent the majority of her life there. Her home county of Matagorda and surrounding counties were hit extremely hard. Many of her friends and family members were directly affected by the rain, winds, and horrible flooding. We cannot sit silently and let people and areas we personally care about recover on their own. So we are asking for teams of people to join us in bringing aid and encouragement to the people of the Texas Gulf Coast.
