We praise God that $2,300 was contributed this summer for the UP Flood relief and restoration efforts in the Houghton-Hancock area.
Levi Matteson, pastor of Evangel Baptist Church in Houghton, shares this note in a letter of appreciation to the MARBC for those who have given to the UP Flood Relief Fund:
“It has been a great blessing to Evangel to be able to see, firsthand, God’s provision in the aftermath of the June flooding. He is Faithful! By turning our facility into the VRC (Volunteer Resource Center), God used our church as a control center for the workers and supplies. It was amazing! Calls were coming in non-stop from people needing help, workers were streaming in and out getting assignments and supplies, and supplies were delivered every day from all over the country. We were able to meet new people in our community and they got to meet us. God is good! As homes and roads are put back together, we continue to pray for our community that they would know personally the powerful God who is also merciful. Thank you as you continue to pray with and for us.”
Please continue to uphold the churches in the region as they minister to their communities and share the gospel with their neighbors.
Thank you to all those who have prayed and given to assist with this special need. Gifts are welcomed for the ongoing ministry of CPR as the MARBC seeks to assist sister churches with both practical and emergency ministry needs.
