‘Living Kits’ for victims of Hurricane Ike


The headlines are long gone, but Southeast Texas residents continue recovering from Hurricane Ike. The BGCT church architcture department has contacted or is contacting as many as 110 congregations in the area that have been affected by the storm.

Recovery is a step-by-step process taken day after day. To support them, they need our daily prayers. They also need some tangible help.

One of the ways Texas Baptists can help is by putting together a “Living Kit.” FEMA is attempting to send 5,000 living kits that include basic supplies for FEMA mobile homes going into the area. Contents of living kits include:

  • Cleaning supplies – 1 broom, 1 push broom, 1 mop, 1 bucket, 1 bottle each of disinfectant and bleach, 1 pair of rubber gloves
