Ravaging the Bahamas with sustained wind speeds of 185 miles per hour and storm surges reaching as high as 23 feet, Hurricane Dorian’s deadly path of destruction impacted five Converge Southeast churches this past weekend.
The Category 5 hurricane proved to be among the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic. It caused massive flooding, demolished buildings and downed power lines across the islands. News reports indicate that 45% of homes in Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands were destroyed. Several people are confirmed dead; a great many others are missing.
Like everyone else in the Bahamas, the Converge Southeast churches there are facing a long, agonizing road ahead. You can help them as they recover, rebuild and reach their communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The easiest and most immediate way to help is through financial donations. Giving to the Converge Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund will help provide resources, including water, food and blankets. Soon, we will announce short term missions opportunities to help rebuild.
Converge has a long association with the Bahamas, and we will continue to support our churches and their communities and share the gospel there long after other organizations have left. Your gifts today will do more than help restore infrastructure; they will provide hope to a situation that, for many, seems hopeless, now and in the future.
