We have heard from a second hand source that Farrington Mission has a significant amount of water in it. This person saw the property and reported the water level at the height of the mailbox. Based on updates on the Farrington Mission area from news reports, this is very likely true. Halls Bayou is overflowing significantly. We have been unable to verify this report for ourselves. Part of our team attempted to go there this morning, but Highway 59 South is closed at Beltway 8 making the mission inaccessible.
The likelihood of three or more feet of water in the mission is heartbreaking. Not only was a brand new 4D ultrasound machine installed in the last 60 days, and so much inventory in the large food pantry and clothing closet ruined, but the ministries of Farrington will likely be closed until we can restore the mission itself.
We will share more information as we know more. For now, let’s commit this situation to the Lord and prepare ourselves for the effort that will be required to reopen the mission.
