We saw him coming. We knew his strength. And we figured where he was going. But we couldn’t do anything to stop this thief from taking what he wanted and destroying millions of lives. We could only escape, if we could, and wait and see what would be left…. if anything.
Over 900 deaths in Haiti with some areas almost completely leveled, turning whole communities into rubble. At least 22 deaths in the U.S., millions without power and having to deal with a watery aftermath of destruction to their homes, cars and personal possessions.
It amazed me to consider their loss, not only of their homes but also their jobs. It’s very common to live relatively close to where we work. Those businesses have to deal with loss—as everyone else in the area—and it may even be the very thing that causes some businesses to close. Millions of people have been impacted by this hurricane disaster: lives, homes, vehicles and other property, and employment.
Our hearts go out to the millions of people affected by this disaster. It is a confusing time for all of those who are dealing with such loss. International Aid stands ready to serve and to work to do all we can to serve those in need.
Prayer is a powerful tool, so we ask that you would pray for the victims of Hurricane Matthew in the Caribbean and here in our country, and that people will respond to appeals for help.
Please consider a cash donation, as it gives the most flexibility when providing disaster relief aid to those in desperate need of it. Recovery is a long, hard road and takes time. And they need our support.
