As the headline notes, my daughter Jenni, who lives in Houston, Texas and owns rental property in Spring, Texas, thirty miles north of the city, made it through Hurricane Harvey dry and safe, both places. Her friends and neighbors as close as several blocks away, however, did not. She sent several pictures of the damage. Pray for Houston, friends. They have a lot of aftermath to deal with. Jenni recommends a charity organized by J.J. Watt, a Houston Texans NFL player, should a reader want to contribute to something local, there. Information can be accessed here:
I’m very proud of you, Jenni, and I thank God for your safety and protection.
Thank you for sharing. So glad to hear that she made it safely through … God is so good! I have friends in Rockport, Corpus Christi, Houston, Katy who have all made it through but have lost much. It’s a long road ahead. We keep looking up to find comfort in our Saviour Jesus.
Yes…a long road ahead for all of them. Adding to my prayer list…
Praise God, that is good to hear your daughter is safe. Praying for many to seek the Lord and the right ones to be sent to minister to all these who have been displaced or lost loved ones.
Hi, Holly, and praise God is right! As you can imagine, we were on tenterhooks awaiting each phone call or text.
One of my brothers and his family lived through Katrina 12 years ago (he lived in Gulfport, MS, a half mile from the coastline) and we didn’t hear from him at all for four days. That was quite harrowing, so hearing from Jenni so much was a huge blessing.
