Daily Updates for Salt and Light Brigade Efforts in Hurricane Harvey
NEW PAGE FOR BRIGADE UPDATES IS AT: Brigade Updates
Supply runs to both Port Arthur area and Conroe underway.
Our Port Arthur guys are back at it after a few hours sleep. The attached video shows the water they had to contend with bringing their boats into the area. Two sites are being planned for food operations and supplies starting Sept 21. King Jesus Ministries-LA are preparing hand-outs to be taken down this week.
We have organized an initial weekend to solidify contacts in the area on Sept 8-10. We will be assessing things as how to best apply our resources. Sept 21-25, we are working to establish two work crews. One in Rockport area and second in the Conroe area. Lodging for Rockport area is secured and hope to have a second site secured in the next 24 hours near Conroe. There are other locations to house responders as needed.
Our second location is in the Conroe area. It is developing nicely and many people are stepping into the gap to solve issues. There is much work to be done. Lodging is our only issue. Please push on social media that what is in need now is CLEANING SUPPLIES: Bleach, rubber gloves, towels, brushes, scrubbing bubbles, Lysol, mosquito and ant spray.
We are still supporting our responder team in Port Arthur and they are doing a magnificent job! This is a marathon not a sprint. We are installing additional dates for volunteers to respond. This is a gigantic event and the devastation is far reaching.
Thanks for your support and prayers.
– Coach Dave
