As we say goodbye to Hurricane Dorian, we’re grateful that many in Central Florida escaped significant damage. Sadly the same cannot be said for the beautiful people of the Bahamas.
If your family would like to help, here is a list of our ministry partners who are jumping in to help. They would love for you to stand with them!

Please pray for all who are impacted by this ferocious storm and for the volunteer relief teams.
This will be a major relief effort to provide shelter materials, clean water and water filters, emergency food and medical assistance, as well as assistance with clean-up and repair.

Convoy of Hope:
Hurricane Dorian’s sheer force crumpled cars, smashed homes, and knocked down trees all over the Bahamas. Floodwaters rose so quickly that it trapped many residents on top of their houses. Members of Convoy of Hope’s International Disaster Services team have already deployed to the islands, taking solar lanterns and water filters for immediate distribution. The team will work with partners, based in Nassau, to assess needs and respond accordingly. Click here to find out more and to donate to Convoy of Hope.

Funds are needed for relief supplies and the transport costs in getting them to their partners on the ground there. Click here to find the list of items they need donated.
