Hurricane Disaster Relief

Christian Mission Trips to Help Texas Flood Victims


GO ON A RELIEF TRIP

What’s Happening in Houston



Join us as we rebuild Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

We have been serving the Houston area since early September and have made significant steps in helping the people of Houston recover and rebuild. We have sought out those who have little hope of restoration without the aid of volunteers. We have found the elderly, widows, veterans, disabled, and the forgotten. There are literally thousands of families in Houston that will not get back into their homes unless someone helps them to rebuild.

You can be one of the people who show up and live out the gospel as we help those who can not help themselves.

Because of the great need that still exists, we have opened up more trips throughout the holiday season and throughout 2018. We need your hands, especially of you have basic construction skills, and we need your heart to show the love of Christ. We will continue to clean out homes that haven’t been helped yet while also continuing to rebuild homes we have already cleaned out.

If you can't serve in person, please consider a gift to help fund building supplies, furniture and appliances for those who have lost everything and have no insurance. All donations to our Disaster Relief Fund go directly to disaster relief needs.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP


PRAY FOR:

  1. The flood victims in Louisiana and Texas effected by Hurricane Harvey.
  2. Pray for wisdom for the local government.
  3. Pray for those on the ground serving.
  4. More people to come and assist on the ground as we set up relief trips.
  5. Finances and people willing to give quickly.
  6. Hope and peace for all aid workers and those affected by the crisis.


DONATE:

Given the unpredictable nature of these disasters, precious time is lost when making efforts to raise funds while victims are already in desperate need. That's why we have created a general Disaster Response Fund allowing us to respond immediately to disasters as they are happening.

As we continue to make you aware of the ways you can help when these events occur, consider supporting the Disaster Response Fund throughout the year so resources are available for our teams to act immediately when unexpected disasters hit.

ABOUT ADVENTURES DISASTER RELIEF


Adventures in Missions responds to both domestic and international disasters, from neighbors next door to friends on the other side of the world. Because needs differ with each disaster's location and intensity, our agile response efforts fill the gaps, meeting needs other relief organizations can't or don't meet.

We’ve mobilized thousands of people in response to disasters around the world, partnering with local churches and ministries to see physical and spiritual restoration in people’s greatest time of need. Relief efforts are a prime opportunity to share the message of hope we have in Jesus.

You can join us the next time disaster hits. To be on our first responder list and be informed of potential disaster relief opportunities, sign up now.
