Posted on Facebook Tuesday afternoon by Ron Sellers: Having served 400+ families in two days and 1500+ since the day the storm ended, we are in need of supplies and volunteers! Every morning we are greeted with a line of people in need in front of our Relief Center; and we will continue to be in need of volunteers tomorrow and Thursday from 9-5. In addition, we are finally able to identify some supplies we are beginning to be in need of: pillows, towels, sheets, light blankets, disinfecting wipes, disinfectant spray, 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner, Size 6 diapers and pull-ups, deodorant, rice and beans in 2-lb bags, canned meat and vegetables, 15-oz peanut butter, particulate respirator masks, and nitrile-coated work gloves. We have begun an Amazon wish list if you wish to use it - http://a.co/eiE4Ag7 Thank you for your partnership and pray for the people of Houston!
Praising our great and powerful God and celebrating all the good that will come out of this time of need.

Today, at our warehouse, about 300 volunteers showed up at 10am, to pack another 1,500 family food boxes, so we can include them with other supplies, and send another 5 semi trailers to SE Texas. 2 truckloads of supplies left our Nashville Warehouse today. The first left a little after noon for the Highland Heights Church of Christ in Houston, and the second trailer left about 3pm for Westgate Church of Christ in Beaumont, TX.
Most of these 53' trailer loads full of new, pre-packed basic needs for all, are being completely handed out in 4-6 hours, and they're wanting more. With 14 shipments made, we have requests for another 20, and many areas are still under water.
We appreciate your prayers and financial support as we continue to help those in Texas, and pray that Irma will head back out to sea, but: "Thy Will Be Done"
