Rita's Reflections - Harvey

By Rev. Dr. Rita Sims, Pastor of First United Methodist Church in Kosse

Our state has been devastated by the damage done to our coastal areas due to Hurricane Harvey! Most people in this area have family or friends whose homes have been flooded. The natural reaction is the desire to help those suffering. Some people took their personal boats to help rescue people who were stranded. In the town of Kosse, people contributed money and physical items to help residents in the small coastal town of Fulton. 

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
