Eagles minister to victims of Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey has left the state, but the recovery process is just beginning. The Eagles have been busy this week ministering to the needs of other families on the team and in the the community. They’ve ripped out carpet, sheet rock and insulation, given equipment and supplies, donated curriculum materials to homeschool families who lost theirs, and certainly they’ve prayed.

Five Eagles families were flooded by the storm, but every family has been changed in one way or another. Many have volunteered in shelters, given clothing, food and money to recovery efforts. Others have taken in extended family, neighbors or friends whose homes have been flooded. Whether as victims or volunteers, we’ve been reminded of how little possessions mean vs. the safety of our loved ones.

In addition to the challenges Harvey brought to Houston, it also brought a chance for us to come together, whether as a city, a neighborhood, a church, or a baseball team. God is using this storm for His glory, and we pray that He’ll continue to guide out steps knowing how, where and when to minister to those in need…

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. — 1 Peter 4:10
