A Minute for Hurricane Harvey

Written by: Julia Smolucha

By Silvi Pirn

In November, Jo Forrest and Silvi Pirn lead a team of adults and youth on a mission trip to help those whose homes were affected by the historical flooding that covered the Houston, Texas area during Hurricane Harvey.  The team worked for three days, helping gut and restore homes that were ruined by floodwaters.  The video above documents some of the work done and relationships built with each other and especially with our Cajun Army partners.  There is still so much work to do.  If you feel called to continue this work or contribute, please contact Silvi Pirn.

We extend our gratitude to those who served: Stella Boeckman, Jason Born, Elise Born, Laura Born, Melisa Duffy, Ally Embree, Will Embree, Lizzy Embree, Jo Forrest, Bowie Frucci, Jeff Hlavack, David Hodges, Elsa Holling, Chris Johnson, *Catherine King, Lucy Kreisa, Mitch Krueger, Sue Leech, Silvi Pirn, Olivia Savino, Alace Schaff, Sarah Van Schaack, Greg Van Schaack. *Catherine had to drop out last minute—but was part of the team in spirit.

Please join us this Sunday for a Minute for Mission from trip participants.
