Over the weekend tornadoes and severe flooding struck the south and southeast leaving devastation and destruction in their wake. Texas was the hardest hit recording an EF4 tornado. So far, more than 40 people have been killed and more than 600 hundred homes/structures destroyed.
Operation Compassion is responding with 5 semi-trucks loaded with bottled water, Gatorade, food and disaster buckets. One of our disaster partners, God’s Pit Crew, is joining the response as well. The trucks will be delivered to our partners on the ground that is able to unload semi-trucks and distribute product to smaller churches. Turning Point Church and Pastor Rusty Dotson in Desoto, TX and Central Park Church and Pastor Adolpho De La Garza in Garland, TX will serve as the disaster relief sites. Abundant Praise Fellowship and Pastor Keith Green in Garland, TX will function as a satellite disaster relief site serving in close proximity to the destruction.
Pastor Green and his church are located only 1.5 miles from the worst destruction in Garland. Pastor Dotson and his church are serving as the hub for the disaster relief response because of their ability to unload semi-trucks at their facility. Pastor De La Garza and his church will also serve as a hub as they are already a distribution site for feeding the needy in the city.
There are many people in need today because of the destructive weather pattern across the United States. This could be just the beginning of a massive response to the survivors. Operation Compassion needs your financial help! A donation today could save a life tomorrow!
It’s easy to donate.
