Screen Shot 2017-09-13 at 1.09.08 PM

Even though Hurricane Irma just packed a punch across the Eastern part of our United States, people are still in desperate need after Hurricane Harvey left its destruction in Texas.  Many of our youth ministry friends have lost so much in the path of this storm and are in great need of our help!

I’ve put together several ways for you to help make an instant impact in the lives of those affected by Hurricane Harvey:

1. PURCHASE THIS BUNDLE (50% Of Proceeds Benefit Texas Youth Workers!)
At MinistryDownloads.com we’ve put together a bundle of resources (Over $750 in  Downloadable Resources–Sermon Series, Games, Admin Helps, Media & More! for  ONLY $49!) and we are donating 50% of ALL proceeds to benefit Texas youth workers! This bundle will be available for purchase until 11:59PM EDT on September 30.  Go [hereto check out this bundle and purchase now.

2. GO (OR PLAN) TO SERVE
I am working with TWO great missions organizations (Experience Mission and Group Mission Trips) to help coordinate short-term and long-term serve opportunities on the ground in Texas!  If you would like more information about how you can take a team (big or small) on a short-term or long-term serve project, please contact me.

3. PRAY FOR VICTIMS
The storm has passed but the affects will be long lasting. Those affected by Hurricane Harvey will be dealing with the destruction for months, maybe years, to come. Texas youth workers, among everyone who experienced a loss of some kind, very much need our continued prayers.  Do not underestimate the power of your prayers.  We need a great prayer army to remember everyone during this time (especially since their stories are no longer being covered in the media).

4. GIVE TO OTHER CHARITIES
Even if you don’t purchase our Bundle at MinistryDownloads.com, there are numerous charitable organizations that are on the ground and doing great work in the state of Texas. I personally have donated to individuals who have suffered loss, to Samaritan’s Purse, to the Red Cross, and to the Salvation Army. I would recommend donating funds to any of these organizations.

How You Can Help Texas Youth Workers!

We thought nothing could ever touch the impact of Hurricane Katrina until now. Our friends in Texas are recovering from what is considered the worst disaster in our Nation’s history, Hurricane Harvey.

Just days ago this came home to me (and many of us) as my dear friend, Stephanie Caro, and her husband, Steve had to be rescued in the flood waters of Katy, Texas (pictured below: Caro’s Rescue).  You can read more about the rescue [here].  There has been a GoFundMe Campaign set up to help Stephanie and her husband recover. Please go [here] to make a donation and read the full story of why their need is so great.

This week I’ve been hearing stories from youth workers who have been affected by this storm, in addition to Stephanie, and I want to help further.  At MinistryDownloads.com we’ve decided to offer 50% of the profits from our Fall Starter Bundle to benefit youth workers in Texas.

This bundle features over $750 in downloadable resources, and we’ve reduced it to ONLY $49 — but only till September 30. The entire month of September you can purchase the bundle, 50% of the profit from your purchase will instantly go to youth workers affected by the Hurricane, and you can enjoy & use all the downloads in your ministry!  Go [here] to purchase the bundle & make an instant impact in the lives of church leaders in Texas!

This really goes without saying, but most importantly during this time those affected by the storm need our prayers!  Join with me in praying for the victims of this disaster, and if you can help, please give.  Thank you!
