“Who are the neediest in our community?” This is the question that Global Gates’ Houston team asked as they assessed the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey. As always, God’s Word provided a trustworthy guide: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27).
Through their personal relationships within the Muslim communities of Houston, Global Gates missionaries have adopted Muslim widows for the focus of their ministry. These women, who are without husbands to care for them, are particularly vulnerable. Their modest homes have been flooded and many of their most precious possessions lost to torrential rains.
Our on-the-ground team has determined that it will take about $10,000 to restore each widow’s home to pre-flood conditions. Our missionaries are already hauling away ruined possessions, pulling up carpets, and stripping away soggy dry wall.
We’re inviting you to “Adopt a Widow” by giving toward the goal of $10,000 per widow restored. As you give, you can be assured that God will find your gifts “pure and faultless” as His Word promised.
