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
