Floods Aren't Pretty
They're terrifying, unpredictible, overwhelming and devastating. Sadly, my sister, Suzette Ratcliff, and her family are experiencing all of this right now as a result of Hurricane Harvey which has ravaged the Texas Coast.
As The Flood Waters Rose
Words can't describe the feeling of helplessness as the water begins to force its way into your home.
You can't stop it. The children don't understand.
They were able to grab what matters most and move to safety.
Suzette, her husband Kenny and their girls, Kennedy and Kaitlin, along with their new puppy, two turtles and a parakeet, are with family for now.
As They Wait For The Storm To Pass
The stress of initiating insurance claims begins. Flood insurance doesn't cover contents and it is unknown what they will be able to recover and how long they will need interim lodging as they begin repairs in the months to come. Their appliances, beds, anything on the floor, has been ruined.
Please Donate and Share The Link
Your donations and support will be a tremendous blessing and help them meet their immediate needs of shelter, clothing, food, etc.
Suzette has served at Maplecrest Baptist Church for the past 12 years as the Children's and Youth Minister. Sadly, the church buildings have all flooded. She is anxious to get back to the kids at church and continue to be a source of strength and comfort for them, as well.
