The pastors in Eagle Pass are intent on helping families recover from the recent flooding in Eagle Pass and Piedras Negras. Their immediate need is to supply families with needed items like household goods, furniture, bedding, school supplies & back packs to replace items that were lost in the flood. Eagle Pass is also in need of volunteers to help replace sheet rock and reconstruct homes that were damaged by the flooding.

Donated supplies should be sent to:
Iglesia Bautista Peniel
Pastor – Felipe Garcia
1595 Juanita Drive
Eagle Pass, Texas  78852

Pastor Garcia is identifying families in his community that need the help so that they can assist them in rebuilding their homes and their lives.
