Cleaning crews and equipment from our disaster partner God’s Pit Crew arrived yesterday, setting up and making ready for several days of full operation. Another partner from east Texas is bringing a mobile kitchen to prepare hot meals for the many survivors and volunteers that have come to help.

Operation Compassion is sending in multiple semi trucks loaded with food, bottled water, and cleaning supplies. This concentrated effort will enable greater resources to be brought to bear for the survivors and assist them in this emergency.
