September 2017 E-Newsletter


Over the past several weeks, the Greater Houston area has experienced so much devastation, and the multi-year process of rebuilding has only just begun. But amidst the devastation, the Church has stepped up! Churches, church networks, and individual believers have risen to the occasion, and Houston is getting a glimpse of God’s love and faithfulness through the work of His people. THANKS to each of you who has shown the love of Jesus in a tangible way to neighbors in need. Click here to read a beautiful example of how West Houston Chinese Church did just that for their new partner school in Spring Branch ISD!

Pray With Us

Last month, we held a luncheon in honor of our colleague Michael Kraxberger as he enters into an exciting new phase of life: retirement! God’s sovereign hand was so evident as pastors, school district leaders, and community leaders shared about the impact Mike has had in their communities. School district leaders spoke of Mike’s patient partnership over the past several years. One church leader shared about how Mike helped their church start a nonprofit that is now engaging multiple churches to partner with multiple schools in Houston ISD. Another pastor shared how Mike helped their church to begin mentoring at a local school – and as a result of the mentor relationships developed, a suicide was prevented and a school shooting was stopped! Praise God for how He used Mike during his time with Loving Houston in such powerful ways, and pray with us as he enters into this next stage of life!

Would you also pray with us for Loving Houston?  

  • Praise God and pray with us for our newest staff member, Melissa Emerson, who has already been such an asset to the ministry in her first two months on the job!
  • Praise God and pray with us for the Houston area churches that are caring for local schools, and for the church leaders who are setting aside their own agendas to collaborate with fellow pastors to reach their geographies.
  • Pray with us for churches that are thinking about partnering with a local school – that God would guide them in their decisions and that they would follow Him wherever He’s leading (whether it’s with a local school or another ministry).
  • Pray with us for a few more Board members who are passionate about mobilizing and equipping the body of Christ to care for and invest in kids across our city.
  • Pray that our Loving Houston staff members, Board of Directors, and Advisors would seek God’s will in our work and that we would follow His leading.
