Wayland Responds to Hurricane Harvey
As the flood waters continue to ravage the Houston and gulf coast area, Wayland Baptist University is encouraging you to join with us in praying for those directly affected.
Our thoughts and prayers especially go out to our alumni in the Houston area. Please know that we are thinking of you in these trying times. We encourage our alumni to contact us and let us know how you are doing.
We ask anyone interested in helping with disaster relief to join us in supporting the Texas Baptist Men through the Baptist General Convention of Texas. According to a Texas Baptists' report, the TBM have been asked by the American Red Cross to provide feeding units in the Victoria and Houston area, as well as offer support for a shelter in Uvalde. Consider giving to the Texas Baptist Men’s Disaster Relief Fund.
BGCT Executive Director David Hardage responded to the disaster by encouraging Texas Baptists to lend their prayer and support to those in need.
UPDATE: Wayland is partnering with College Heights Baptist Church in Plainview to collect items to send to the Houston area for distribution as needed. Items are begin collected today (Aug. 29) until 7 p.m. and tomorrow (Aug. 30) from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Gymnasium at College Heights.
Items needed are: Walmart gift cards, bottled water, non-perishable food (remember, people can't cook right now), clothing, baby needs, dog food.
The Wayland Mission Center is planning a trip to the region during Fall Break. The trip is open to all students, faculty and staff. More details about the trip will be forthcoming.
