At our September Missions meeting, we talked about the devastating impact from Hurricane Laura in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. The MTMUMC Missions Committee agreed to support the relief efforts with a $300 donation to a designated fund of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) that was earmarked for US disasters including Hurricane Laura. As a follow up, one of our committee members, Leigh Bak suggested sending an email to the MTMUMC community for individual donations to this advance. Another $1,235 was received! This is a true blessing, especially since Hurricane Delta hit many of the same neighborhoods and communities only six weeks later! For more information about recovery efforts, please see the article attached below. https://www.umnews.org/en/news/amazing-grace-comes-in-many-ways-for-storm-survivors
Please see the link for giving to this fund right here: https://advance.umcor.org/p-620-umcor-us-disaster-response-and-recovery.aspx and be sure to select Mary Taylor Memorial UMC as the designated church! Please continue to hold our brothers and sisters impacted by these hurricanes in your prayers. May God give them endurance and hope and strength and faith. Amen.
