OPC Disaster Response has been in contact with the OPC church leaders in the Houston area all through the weekend. They have been able to keep an eye on one another and minister to one another.

Currently, there are 6 households of concern, though this might increase as the rains continue. Concerns are growing as the flood waters continue to rise. In some places, the water level is far exceeding the 100-year-flood level.

If you are able to volunteer, please begin to make plans for taking time off in the weeks and months ahead. The recovery and rehabilitation effort could easily stretch into years.

We don’t anticipate having access to make an assessment until later this week or into next week, given that this disaster is still unfolding.

Please stay tuned. And pray particularly for the members of Cornerstone OPC in Houston and Providence OPC in Kingwood, TX!

The Committee on Diaconal Ministries would have each donor understand the following regarding the future disposition of gifts received designated for a particular disaster:

  • All designated disaster response funds may be transferred to the General Disaster Fund, but no sooner than two years after the date of the disaster.
  • Any amount in the General Disaster Fund over $50,000 may be transferred to the CDM General Fund.
