A Message from Robert Schnase, Bishop of the Rio Texas Annual Conference

The full impact of Hurricane Harvey on the lives of tens of thousands of people in our communities in the Rio Texas Conference is still unknown. Our hearts have been stirred by the stories of grieving families and of those who have suffered loss and now face uncertainty. For now, we solicit your prayers and patience as we assess the scope of human need and discern how we will respond as United Methodists. I pray God’s blessing upon those who have been affected most personally and for all those responding and offering their help.

Yours in Christ,

Robert Schnase
