Last week, Executive Director of Sovereign Grace Churches, Mark Prater, sent out a message about how as we as believers can help families in the Bahamas who are suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. You can read the text of his message below. To visit the Sovereign Grace Churches’ Bahamas Relief Fund page directly, click here.
By now you have watched or read reports of the loss of life, injuries, and extensive destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas. As I write this e-mail there are 20 confirmed deaths and officials expect the death toll to rise. Additionally, damage on the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
As you many know, we have a Sovereign Grace church, Kingdom Life Church led by Cedric Moss in Nassau, which is on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas. Cedric and the members of Kingdom Life desire to demonstrate God’s love and the free gift of God’s grace in the gospel, by meeting the needs people have as a result of Dorian’s damage. To support the efforts of Kingdom Life Church, Sovereign Grace Churches has established a “Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund” that your church, or members of your church can give to. You can read more about the relief fund here:
As the blog post states, the money given to the relief fund will be used to meet medium and long-term needs as Cedric works with other churches and ministries in The Bahamas to determine the best way to serve. Even though Sovereign Grace Churches will collect the funds given to the Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund, the use of those funds will be monitored by a committee of Sovereign Grace elders from the Southeast Region of which Kingdom Life Church is a part. This approach not only provides accountability but also allows those closest to the needs in The Bahamas to decide on the best way to disperse the funds.
Please consider making a financial donation to the relief fund. I would also ask that you pray for the people of The Bahamas and for Cedric and the members of Kingdom Life as they determine the best way to care for those affected by this hurricane. May God use Cedric and Kingdom Life Church to bring help and hope that points people to the hope of the gospel.
With appreciation for our gospel partnership,
