李牧師:

徳州風災水淹,為休斯頓地區帶來極大破壞和傷害,救災工作需要大量志願者。休斯頓第一浸信會在未來數月中每個禮拜預備為150 名志願者提供住宿和伙食,和分派工作。

懇請鼓勵華人教會考慮差派志願者來應付這迫切的需要,並抓住這服事和傳福音的機會?最早可以下周就參加。

以下是一些風災的資料並回應這些需要的一些具體方法。如有問題,請與我聯絡。

謝謝!

Dear Pastor Lee:

The storm in Florida has caused many to forget the urgent need for volunteer teams in Houston. Houston’s First Baptist Church is prepared to receive, house, feed and deploy 150 volunteers every week over the next months.

Could you let Chinese churches in your area to consider sending volunteers as early as next week to meet this pressing need and opportunity?

Below are some details and ways to response. I am ready to answer your questions or point you in the right direction for answers.

Thanks,
Jeremy Sin
