Support for Houston Flood Victims

BGEA Deploys Crisis-Trained Chaplains to Texas Hurricane Harvey Disaster Area

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
— Psalm 46:1 (ESV)

Dear Friend,

My heart goes out to the people of South Texas, as the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey grows worse by the hour. As I write this, floodwaters continue to rise in many areas, and more than 50 inches of rain are possible by the end of the week.

Our Rapid Response Team chaplains are already there ministering to families near San Antonio. Approximately 250 crisis-trained chaplains are ready to provide emotional and spiritual care to people reeling from fear and loss at some of the hardest-hit locations in the coming weeks. Please pray for the millions who are enduring this terrible tragedy.

Will you also pray for the Texas National Guard, the military, law enforcement, first responders, and local leaders who are working so hard to help during this crisis?

May God richly bless you,

Franklin Graham

P.S. Your financial support enables us to train and deploy these chaplains at a moment's notice to the front lines of crises like Hurricane Harvey.

Larry Jones, update

The doctor has taken Larry off "chemo" because of the terrible side effects that almost took his life. As his body sheds the chemo, he's been feeling a lot better and was even able to mow the yard this week.

Larry has been in contact with other cancer centers and (so far) they all feel there's little can be done. It's a very rare form of cancer which no doctor knows much about. He had a CAT scan (yesterday?) and now has 2 spots of cancer on the lungs, which is an indication that the cancer is traveling in the body and could wind up in other organs.

Larry is on a natural product that may help, but more than anything, prayer is where his and our greatest hope lay. Larry says "Keep on praying!" And that's just what we need to do... keep the prayers a comin!
