God Don’t Make No Junk

I spent last week with the TBA Disaster Relief Team ministering in Victoria, Texas, where Hurricane Harvey hit and spent a while wreaking havoc. The group we were part of provided food, necessities, chainsaw help, roof tarping, and removal of wet drywall, floors, and ceilings. So far, we have addressed needs in almost 500 damaged homes in Victoria. We also prayed with thousands of people, and have seen over sixty people come to faith in Christ!
