Also, thanks to those of you who are gearing up to assist us as we help others. I look forward to assistance from my friends in New York, Esther Cross and her ministry, have reached out. The Salvation Army's David L Sincere Jr., extended his support even though he was evacuated from his residence in Sienna Plantation. And, Phillip G Polley, my friend from the Adventist Disaster Relief Agency (ADRA) in Maryland, thanks for the hook up with Adventist Community Services, in this area. My Burns SDA Church family in Detroit, I appreciate those who have reached out and look forward to your assistance. And, Winnie-mae Washington, Eldredge E. Washington, and all of the Atlanta crew, hats off to you for your help. Then, our Houston base, Rapha Community Initiatives and Unity Adventist Worship Center, let's put some walk behind our Christian talk and make a difference for our family and friends in need!!!

We cannot save the world. We cannot save Houston. We cannot save Texas. But, we can brighten the corner where we are. We have seen the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and we are trying to help those near us. I have spoken to several displaced families with children and they need help. I hope you will help us help them. Put packages together and send them to us and we will distribute them along with our own contributions!!!

We have members who have lost everything and need basic clothes. So many are like that. Earlier today, my niece, Winnie Washington, called from Atlanta about how she and others can help victims of Harvey. I told her to collect items and send to our non-profit, Rapha Commumity Initiatives, for distribution. Our site is www.raphacommunityinitiatives.org. We will make sure your items get to folk in shelters in West Houston and Fort Bend County. All of your contributions are tax deductible including items. Our address is Rapha Village, 7003 Addicks Clodine, Houston, Texas 77083. We are in the area where Addicks Reservoir is being released. Send underwear, diapers, toiletries, cleaning supplies, etc. We will keep you abreast on our pages. Beginning tomorrow the phones will be manned. You can contact me here or email me directly at [email protected]. More info to come.

My wife's island country of Dominica has been devastated by Tropical Storm Erika. I have many friends from the country and want to help as much as possible. Today it's them and Erika. Ten years ago, it us and Katrina & Rita. These are pictures of he Prime Minister of Dominica consulting with his cabinet concerning relief efforts and those needing relief following the storm. Many in this small island lost everything. It appears that dozens lost their lives. My wife and others are collecting items to send to Dominica to help. We will have collection of items set up at Rapha Village located at 7003 Addicks Clodine, Houston, Texas 77083. If you would like to help, they need everything! You can drop your donations by any time during the day. You can also inbox me and we will make ourselves available to collect tax deductible donations including cash and in-kind donations.

“Reaching the At-risk with positive Principles, Habits, and Attitudes”

“I believe that giving ‘wings’ to our children and to others means empowering them with the freedom to rise above negative scripting that had been passed down to us.”

--- Stephen Covey, 7 Habits, p. 316

Merry Christmas to all of you. Remember there are many children who are sad because they are without their parents. A few weeks ago we had a family of six including five adopted children who lost their mother. Let's not forget to extend love to those who are without!

11/25/2014

Strangers should not show more love to children than those who share their DNA. It is the great tragedy of life!

As citizens of the United States we enjoy lifestyles of remarkable wealth. Living without clean water, paved roads, cooled/heated homes, instant meals and more never cross our minds. Often times we forget that others are suffering when the media attention fades from situations such as the devastating earthquakes in Haiti. Just 6 years ago in 2004, one of the most devastating natural disasters hit South Asia & close to 250,000 people lost their lives. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina swept through the Gulf of Mexico causing more than $80 billion in damage and many states & families are yet to recover.

Always take time out to remember the great wealth that we have been granted! Enjoy & appreciate every moment that you have!

Join Rapha Community Initiatives, local businesses, our staff and more as we work to make a difference in the lives of children here and in other parts of the world.

Investing in our children is investing in their future as well as our own. Paying for their opportunities now is paying forward for your own opportunities later.

We are preparing to sponsor more young people from our community on a People to People Student Ambassador trip during the summer of 2015. We are hoping many of you will help us get them there. In 2014, Serena Laurier became our 2nd student to experience a trip abroad. She went to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. After returning, she said, "I wish it never had to end!" We want to expose more youth to these opportunities.

I hope you will work with us to help young people build assets that will equip them to grow into healthy, productive adults. While money will definitely assist us, you can help even if you have no money. The Search-Institute, as well as Colin Powell's America Promise organizations, show that the most important assets for children have little to do with money. So, as we kick off our 2013 activities, tell your friends about us and make your contribution to help us and children here in Houston and beyond.

03/07/2013

Hello, everybody. We are starting to gear up for new activities for our young people and we will also be announcing a new initiative dedicated to touching the lives of children who have been abused. So, pay attention to our posts and get involved to make a different in the lives of those who need it most.

Peaceful acts create Peace. Loving acts create Love. By acting we create our environment. What type of atmosphere are you creating? Regardless of what others do, we control the temperature gauge. When two opposing actions meet, consistency is the variable that determines domination.

We are joining with the African American Kidney Initiative to help our young people learn the importance of water in their everyday life.
