We received a sweet thank you card from Mayra today and we wanted to share her thoughts with all of you.

To all who donated…

“Harvey has become a name that is tough to hear around Houston and the surrounding areas. However, I have seen that same name bring people closer to God. I have heard of testimonies that go above and beyond of ways God has used Harvey for His glory. Take me as an example. I didn’t think my love and faith could get any stronger. I thought I had my plans all made but sure enough, God once again shook my plans and reminded me that my plans are not his plans. He reminded me that when I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior, he planted in  me a very special mission. A mission of great commissioner and that this experience could be used as a testimony of how good God is to me and to those that trust and love him. Look up Romans 8:28 “…God works for the good…”

Thank you for your donations.”

Mayra E.


Mayra is a hard working single mom who lives in Houston.  She has an elementary age daughter named Clarissa.  During the flooding following Harvey, she lost the contents of the room she was renting.  She also lost her vehicle. The married couple she was renting from has been forced to look for new housing.

Mayra has applied for an apartment closer to her daughters school, however she doesn’t make enough money for the complex to immediately approve the application. She can afford the rent, but the apartment complex is hesitant because of the medical expenses incurred during her daughter’s recent back surgery. The apartment manager is trying to find a way to get her approved by waiving the medical debt.

In the meantime Mayra and Clarissa are staying with another single mom from their church. This situation is a temporary solution as both of these women’s’ children have medical issues as well and the added folks in their small space are putting a squeeze on daily living.
