If you are like me you’ve been watching the news in pure disbelief. What a horrible tragedy this is and it’s not over. To hear these stories of people and children trapped in their homes with the water still rising around them is just a pure nightmare.

I was able to speak to my father yesterday who is in the Houston area (and doing good.) The emotion in his voice talking about friends that have lost everything is just heartbreaking. He gave me a great contact to a church called the First Baptist in Huffman which is just northeast of Houston. I’ve emailed with the deacon directly and this is some things on their wishlist:

Gently-worn clothes

Bottled water

Hand sanitizer

Mobile showers

Here is their address:

First Baptist Church Huffman

25503 FM 2100 Huffman, TX 77336


Amazon makes life so easy for us. Donate what you can because anything will help someone that has lost everything.

Thank you to all the first responders and the good samaritans that are out there risking their own lives help and save others.


I’m praying for Texas
