Post-storm Updates here
9/11/2017: Just two weeks after Hurricane Harvey flooded southern Texas, Irma is hammering Florida. Southern Floridians are no strangers to storms. However, according to experts at the National Hurricane (as quoted in the Washington Post), Irma could be a “once in a generation storm”. Churches cancelled Sunday worship services and the estimates are that 5 million people are without power.
ARDF is partnering with several Anglican Dioceses to help get relief to people affected by Hurricane Irma: the Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic, based in Jacksonville, FL, The Anglican Diocese of the South, based in Atlanta, GA, and the Diocese of the Carolinas, based in Pleasant, SC. States of emergency have already been declared in Florida and Georgia.
How to help
You can donate funds even now to support Irma relief.
Please pray that the storm does not live up to expectations and that those in Florida will be protected from its wrath.
As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. – Luke 6:47-48
