Those recovering from the damages still need prayer. In addition, contributions may be made to UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief at www.umcor.org, Advance #901670,1-800-554-8583. Contributions to UMCOR are given to 100% of the designated need. In addition, flood buckets are sorely needed for clean-up of homes. The estimated cost of each bucket is $65. The needed items for these cleaning kits may be found at http://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies.
I served as the pastor of Faith United Methodist Church in Fannett, near Beaumont, for six years. Many of the houses and other buildings were flooded in the area. My plan is to deliver flood buckets to this area in the near future. If you would like to participate in this delivery or in contributing flood buckets, please let the church know at 254-375-2426.
