Yesterday there was a four-alarm fire in the St. John’s neighborhood of Austin.  Thankfully, no one is facing life threatening injuries, but 300 people are at least temporarily displaced by the fire.  Please pray for these families…pray that they would know the hope and the joy of Jesus Christ during this time and that they would suffer well…pray that the Church would act as the Church to love and serve those who were and are affected by the fire.   If you are in Austin, there is a need for both volunteers and donations.

You can take donations (socks, underwear, shoes, hygiene products, canned goods, microwaveable foods, etc.) to Iglesia Ebenezer church (7000 Cameron Rd) tonight until 9pm, Wed 8am-10:30pm; or Thurs-Fri 9am-8pm.
