We Are Forming An Emergency Preparedness Team

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?… For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” – Matthew 6:24-34

This season has brought about many worries, and yet hope exists. Jesus is our hope. He is sufficient; trust and obey. We are of
great value to Him and he will provide in ways we may not expect. We have been gifted today, so let us seek the Kingdom of God and flourish in this life, even during a pandemic.

In recent years, Houston and neighboring areas have been greatly impacted by natural disasters. This hurricane season, we desire to be even more prepared to respond than before.

We are coordinating with Texas Congressional Disaster Readiness and forming an Emergency Preparedness team of volunteers.

In addition to recruiting a team of volunteers, we are working on a plan of rapid communication to all members in an event of a natural disaster to be sure that you are safe. Therefore, we need our database, REALM, to have complete and accurate information for each household. You can help us to update the information. If you don’t have an account, you may create one or log in to your existing account at onrealm.org/fmhouston. Please check your information (click on “Edit” to see data). Some of the information to check: all household members are listed, contact information is complete and accurate, cell phone numbers are designated as mobile, and birth dates are included for all members.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact [email protected] or call 713-594-0576. And if you would like to join our Emergency Preparedness efforts, please contact me, Paula Niz, at [email protected].

Lastly, we have significant information on how you and your family can be prepared this hurricane season. Please check out the resources at fmhmissions.com.

Let’s be prepared, but not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.

Serving Together,
