Hurricane Joaquin hit the Bahamas hard, and the Westridge Church of Christ in Nassau is raising funds for hurricane relief. Their preacher, Clyde Symonette, emailed this note to me:

Hurricane Joaquin did extensive damage in the southern islands of the Bahamas. Nassau, where I live and where the church is located is pretty much unscathed. Residents of the affected islands are displaced and are in desperate need of food, water and other supplies in the short term and accommodations in the long term. As a church we plan do all that we can to contribute to the relief and rebuilding efforts. To that end I write to request that you incorporate a link to our fund raising site on your website. The link is https://www.gofundme.com/me5r5jdk it has been set up by Adam and Paula Williamson. Adam and his wife Paula have been with us for about 3 years now. He works for the US Government in the Bahamas. They are members of our church.

I know Clyde personally. My congregation sends two or three short-term mission groups each year to Nassau to work with this congregation. They are good people and will manage your donations well.
