Disaster Relief Fires
So I wanted to tell you guys all about Texas! I seriously had a great time while I was there, the drive there was also a lot of fun. We cleaned up about 6 to 7 house while we were there, there were over 200 house on the list and about 1,500 that burned down. It was truly sad to see the houses burned down to nothing and to see the pain in the homeowners. I was glad that we were able to help with something even if it was simple. We did clean up which was shoveling all the ash into a pile. One of the most heart breaking stories was this family who bought a house on a Wednesday and the fire burned it down on Friday. They only owned their house for about 3 days before it burned down and they had no insurance. One thing that was evident through out this trip was that everything truly is temporary and it can be gone in the blink of an eye. I was convicted of how much stuff I own and how I can get consumed with buying things. Trips like this are good for reminding you of whats important. I ask that you continue to pray for the victims and the workers that are still there.
