Hurricanes are bad news. Or are they?
To those who have lost homes, property, livelihood, and loved ones, it is very hard to find anything good about a monster storm like Hurricane Harvey. A common question might be, “Where was God in all that?”
John McQuary can help us find the answer. He and his wife, Glenda, endured one of the worst storms that has ever come ashore in Texas. Their Houston neighborhood suffered severe flooding, and yet their home remained intact. John will explain, the Almighty’s provision not only during the storm, but in the years leading up to it, positioned the them in such a way to remain safe, and to begin coordinating recovery efforts as the flood waters began to recede.
This is a very special Remnant Road program. John’s congregation, Becoming One Stick in His Hand, is at the center of recovery work in Houston, even though many among them are also in need.
How can you help? And how could you help prepare for the hurricanes even now blowing in from the Atlantic? We will get John’s perspective on these and many more questions in our second hour, and in our first hour will have another first-hand report from Hanoch in Israel.

The National Shabbat movement arrived in the Lone Star State through a gathering of about 100 people on March 19 at Fischer Park in the city of New Braunfels. As with National Shabbats in Georgia and South Carolina, some participants traveled many hours to get there, coming from as far away as Sabine Pass on the Louisiana border, Wichita Falls near the Oklahoma border, Arlington in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, and Corpus Christi on the Gulf Coast. Most of those assembled in New Braunfels came from around Austin (Georgetown, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Kyle) and San Antonio (Boerne, Converse, Poteet, Adkins, Floresville), with a significant number from the Houston area (Katy, Sugarland, Pasadena).
