Her Worst Nightmare: A Second Hurricane!

“I was afraid, and I wanted to get out,” Becky said through tears. “I didn’t know how high the water was gonna get.”

Becky and her husband Gary were jolted awake by the sound of their neighbors banging on the door.  Beaumont, Texas, was being flooded by rain from Tropical Storm Imelda. As they left the house, memories of Hurricane Harvey haunted Becky.

“We gotta get out of here, because it’s gonna be the same way,” Becky thought. “And we didn’t wanna have to be rescued in a boat, and we didn’t want to have to go to a shelter. I had a stroke after Harvey, all the stress.”

Thankfully, they drove to safety themselves and rode out the storm in an RV. Days later, when Becky returned to the house, she was heartbroken to discover her walls had been soaked again.

“You have to tear ‘em out and replace them,” Becky said. “I’m old and my health is not as good. And I couldn’t, I would be ready to walk away and never come back.”

Becky’s cousin knew Operation Blessing was in Beaumont during Harvey. She told Becky we came back again to help families recover after Imelda.

“And before the day was over you were here, and today you’re here,” Becky said through tears. “God is taking care of me. He’s taking care of me.  He is taking care of me.”

Our crew of volunteers cut out the water-soaked drywall and removed the wet insulation before mold had a chance to set in. Then we hauled all that debris out to the road. We found out Becky has been a 700 Club partner for years.  She was overjoyed when CBN’s Operation Blessing came to her rescue.

“I watch it every day on TV, and I know they do great things for people everywhere,” Becky said. “People that aren’t as blessed as we are, because they don’t have water and they don’t have things that we take for granted.”

“Thank you for everybody that gives so Operation Blessing can go and help other people,” Becky said. “And now I know they came and helped me.  And I don’t know what I would do without ya’ll.”
