Texas Baptists are still at work with people and churches affected by Hurricane Ike. And, there are still needs. We received a prayer update this morning from the Disaster Response team for the website and it contains praises, glimpses of God at work and urgent needs that still need to be fulfilled. Here’s one of those stories of God at work:
Sweet Home Baptist Church, Hankamer is a congregation that had dwindled down to 10 people. They have a new interim pastor and their attendance has grown to 40-50 people. Their building sustained damage from Hurricane Ike and they needed a partner. First Baptist Church, Morris felt led to get involved with disaster response and prayed over the list of affected churches on the BGCT website. One member of the committee felt that Sweet Home Baptist Church was their assignment. First Baptist, Morris offered to help this church on the very day that we learned that Sweet Home needed a partner. God was already at work bringing these two churches together long before we knew anything about their needs.
