A MESSAGE TO YOU FROM ROCKPORT: I received this note from Lori of New Beginnings Ministries, our contact group in Rockport ... "I want the donors to know that most residents in Rockport have water and gas, with electric service due to be up and running by midnight. The only store open is HEB, and cleaning is on everyone's mind. There are some residents who are just returning home (having evacuated) and they are feeling devastated at seeing the destruction. We, here at New Beginnings Ministries, are happy to be the hands and feet of Jesus to so many who will be recovering from this hurricane for many months to come. But we want to thank all the donors to this amazing Fundraiser for all you've provided us, because each of you are reaching the residents of Rockport through us. We are thankful for all of you!"
WE'RE STILL GOING! Thanks to the continued giving of so many compassionate people, we are still able to provide much-needed supplies to the residents of Rockport. As people return, and the trees are removed, there will be an ongoing and massive clean-up of debris and dirt in homes. So, I am now concentrating on cleaning supplies (including brooms, mops, and rakes) along with chainsaw oil/gas. We will continue to buy as long as the money holds out. Along with Lori, I want to thank you for all you've done to make a difference in the lives of so many people. God bless each of you!
