In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Kenilworth Union Church is sending a team to Houston to help communities impacted by the disaster. Our team will partner with Praying Pelican Missions, who will assign us a host church in Houston, most likely near the communities of Deer Park or Pasadena to the southeast of downtown Houston, where we will work to support the local church's relief and recovery efforts in communities affected by this disaster. The work we will do will be dictated by the needs of the community during our visit, which will be prioritized by the local church.
