Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Harvey Relief

We recently sent a Global Ministry Team to Corpus Christi, Texas, to work alongside local churches and ReachGlobal Crisis Response. Here are a few thoughts from team member Nate Wagner:

When I heard that Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, I knew instantly that I would go and serve. I didn’t know how or when, but I knew I would go. I was excited to learn that Hershey Free would be sending relief teams to Texas.

While I was in Texas, I learned how much I take for granted here in central Pennsylvania. One of those things I definitely took for granted was running water (accessibility to bathrooms and showers), among other things. Also, God impressed upon me that he can use me no matter where I am. As a result of this trip, I believe that I will be doing more trips that focus on trauma care needs. I am a licensed professional counselor here in PA, and I know I will be using these gifts and skills in the future, whether that be here in PA or somewhere else where God leads. I am thrilled to be a part of God’s story.

I want to invite you to come with me as part of your own incredible journey. We plan to send teams to Texas in January and April. If you would like to know more about either of these trips, click here to let the Beyond the Walls team know of your interest.
