A Testimony to Buck Run’s Faithfulness

In September of 2017, Buck Run mobilized to serve the city of Houston in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Our efforts focused on ministering at Farrington Mission, an inner-city ministry of Northeast Houston Baptist Church. Farrington Mission ministers to the members of Houston’s 5th Ward community. The mission consists of a food pantry, clothes closet, and a crisis pregnancy center. Flooding from Hurricane Harvey closed Farrington Mission, particularly the crisis pregnancy center. All of the medical equipment within the facility including the ultrasound machine were ruined. When word of this reached Buck Run, the church collected money, food, and clothes and sent these supplies to Houston with two teams that were also sent. These teams worked hard to get the pregnancy center operational again through demo, sheetrock work, and painting.

On last week’s Pastor Well podcast with Dr. York, Nathan Lino, the Senior Pastor of Northeast Houston Baptist Church, gives an update on Farrington Mission and speaks directly to the impact that Buck Run made on this incredible ministry. As we head into 2020 and a year focused on missions, I encourage you to listen to (at least) the first 10 minutes of this conversation wherever you listen to podcasts or in the video below to see how our faithfulness and intentionality to go and serve can make a real impact on the lives of others.
