With the destruction of Hurricanes Harvey, Ira and Jose; fires in the Western US and the Mexico earthquake, our hearts break for those who are experiencing such great loss of life and property in the face of multiple catastrophic events in our sphere of influence. The number and scope of the current needs are so great that you and your congregation may feel paralyzed, not knowing what to do. NextGen's and CBAmerica's strategy in light of these needs is : Encouraging individuals and congregations to consider initially giving to those organizations bet prepared for early relief efforts. Our early response agency of choice is Samaritan's Purse . To help meet long-term recovery efforts we are encouraging individuals and churches to give to CBAmerica's Disaster Relief ACTs Fund (Acts of Compassion in Tragic Situations).
