HOUSTON – A Widow In Need – James 1:27

HELP WANTED

During my recent trip to Houston one of the houses that we “mudded out” (the term we use for gutting a house of all the wet furniture, appliances, possessions, drywall, flooring etc. of the homeowners) belonged to a widowed Hispanic woman named Mara.

Upon arriving at her home the first day I greeted Senora Mara with a very traditional greeting of Bendicio Senora Mara, como esta? Blessing to you Mrs. Mara how are you? she immediately began to cry and I thought I had said it wrong, but no those were tears of relief.

You see Senora Mara had felt (like so many others) completely isolated and alone since the flooding. She has family but they do not speak to her and her local church is small and without means it too was essentially wiped out by Hurricane Harvey. So we talked me in my badly broken Spanish and she in her quite understandable English. The highlight came when she and my wife (who is Puerto Rican) talked for nearly 30 minutes on the phone.

Unless you have experienced the loss of nearly all your life’s possessions it is hard to imagine or describe how Senora Mara felt as we systematically took piece after piece of her home apart and tossed it to the curb for the trash trucks to dispose of. All the while with no place to go she had to stay living in the home.  Senora Mara turned out to be quite the trooper as she worked side by side with our team for 3 days as we ripped her house apart.

Like so many others she had no flood insurance, why you may ask, well she was not in a flood zone and not eligible. The area she lived in had never flooded so FEMA had not designated it a flood zone. Of course FEMA came to her Aid, NOT!! They sent her a letter saying she could get a low interest loan, really, how does a widow living on Social Security of under $700.00 qualify or afford that?

Senora Mara at diner and church with us one night after we finished her house.

HELP WANTED

So here is the deal I am trying to organize team(s) of volunteers to go back to Houston preferably before the New Year, to work on putting Senora Mara’s house back together.  If you are available please email me and let me know, we will need to raise funds for materials, and food but I think I can secure us a place to bunk.
