Bouncers Join the Ongoing Disaster Recovery Effort in Victoria, TX

by Cherish Mason on July 9, 2018 in BOUNCE

Bouncers arrived in Victoria, TX today for the 4th Bounce Mission this summer! So far, Bounce has mobilized hundreds of students who have engaged in disaster recovery work across Texas. 

The community of Victoria is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey, and several houses have suffered from wind damage. Because of this, all of the students this week will be repairing roofs. 

Bouncers will be staying at Northside Baptist Church, the same church that housed the Texas Baptist Men last August. Among the first responders, the Texas Baptist Men engaged in disaster relief work in Victoria, TX immediately after Hurricane Harvey. This week, Bouncers have the opportunity to continue in the ongoing disaster recovery effort and to follow in the footsteps of the Texas Baptist Men who went before them. 

There are 165 students participating in Bounce this week representing 10 Texas Baptist Churches including Acton Baptist Church, Henderson Street Baptist Church, Stoneburg Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Tyler, First Baptist Church Monahans, First Baptist Church McGehee, First Baptist Church Rockwall, Morse Street Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Elm Mott, and North Park Baptist Church. 

Bouncers will head out to their work sites tomorrow morning, and our prayer is that they would be ready to restore hope to homeowners, because they understand that they have an unshakable, everlasting hope in Jesus Christ. 

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.

The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
