Church members’ homes burned in Texas wildfires
Church member Janice Hernandez said at least two families in the congregation have lost homes, and more than half of members have evacuated their neighborhoods.
About three dozen people, including members and people from the community, slept at the church building Monday night, Hernandez said.
“Definitely, we need lots of prayer for rain,” she told The Christian Chronicle.
In the aftermath of the fires, church members probably will need physical assistance, she added.
