Samaritan’s Purse Updates
10/18/18 @ 8:30a - Our volunteers are hard at work in Albany, Georgia, and in the Florida Panhandle where our teams have received more than 1,500 work orders between the two locations. More than 300 volunteers so far have helped respond to the need. Many more will be needed over the coming weeks and months. The work consists mostly of clearing downed trees and debris and tarping roofs. Since our Michael response began late last week, 13 people have prayed to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Please continue to pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as needs emerge and as our teams continue working in these hard-hit areas. Pray for God to move in the hearts of homeowners so they might seek Him amid this devastation. And pray for comfort for families of lost loved ones as reports come in that the death toll has risen to 32. Tens of thousands of people are still without power. Please continue to pray for our hurricane responses in multiple locations.
