Irma traces path of destruction from Cuba to Florida

Hurricane Irma wreaks havoc, leaving chaos and turmoil in its wake. Streets are unrecognizable under heavy water in the Caribbean after its destruction. Homes are demolished. Utility poles, signs, and trees have been uprooted. More than 20 people were killed and death tolls continue to rise.

On Saturday, Cuba was decimated by raging winds topping 125 mph and intense rainfall. And now, Irma batters Florida with damaging winds and heavy rain.

Flooding continues in Cuba and waters have reached nearly 2,000 feet inland in parts of Havana. Even now, many streets remain buried in waist-high water.

Our contacts in central Cuba told me how devastating the conditions are — homes are destroyed and entire buildings have collapsed! A school near one of our church planting partners is completely demolished. People are without food, electricity, water, and shelter … some have even sought safety in caves to escape the terror.

People are experiencing unimaginable conditions. But you can help by sending emergency aid to areas affected by Hurricane Irma.

We have food ready to send to Cuba and Haiti right now, and you can help send it to those in greatest need. But these supplies won’t last long. You can help provide lifesaving supplies to people in Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Florida left to sort through the destruction Irma left in its wake.

For just $50, you can provide emergency aid such as food, clean water, hygiene supplies, and generators to those affected by Irma.

I urge you to continue praying for those in Irma’s path and give as generously as you can to help save a life.
