From February 14-20, 2021, Winter Storms Uri and Violet hit the state of Texas, bringing below-freezing temperatures and dumping snow and ice. Approximately 4 million Texans were without power and/or water, many for multiple days. Homes, churches and other ministry facilities were affected by water damage as pipes froze and burst. Texas Baptist Area Representatives and other staff have been in contact with those impacted by the storms, and various ministries and ministry partners are already responding. Though the situation remains fluid, we encourage you to join us in praying, giving and partnering together to meet the needs of those impacted by these storms.
We believe in the power of prayer, and we continue to call all members of the Texas Baptists family to pray fervently.
