In the wake of Hurricane Harvey the world is asking the question, “Why did this happen?” Our question is not unlike that of Jesus’ disciples in John 9, who asked why a particular man was born blind: “Who sinned,” they asked, “this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
Jesus replied, “Neither…this came about so that God’s works might be displayed….” (John 9:3). And he healed the man.
While it may be interesting to ask why Hurricane Harvey happened, it’s much more important to do what Jesus did, and respond! As disciples of Jesus, Global Gates missionaries are displaying God’s works to the people of Houston, particularly its least-reached, most vulnerable neighborhoods.

In the same John 9 passage, Jesus pressed his disciples to realize: “Night is coming, when no one can work.” Dear friends, it’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there.
Thank you for your help!
