Texas is facing a crisis! Millions have lost power and a new storm just hit the region again.
Mercy Chefs -- Grassfire's disaster relief partner -- is DEPLOYING to Texas to help bring hot meals to families that are suffering in this winter weather crisis.
I'm hoping the Grassfire team will help sponsor at least 1,000 meals IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. Just $50 will help provide 20 hot meals for WINTER STORM VICTIMS right now! Go here to make your tax-deductible gift directly to Mercy Chefs, and see below.

WE ARE DEPLOYING TO FROZEN TEXAS. SEE BELOW -- Gary
Texas and the southern plains have been devastated by bitter cold and a series of winter storms that have crippled the region. As of right now, 3.4 MILLION homes are without power in Texas. That means the total number of Texans without power could be 2-4 times that number as the 3.4 million represents electric customers.
Many have been without power for days and they are freezing. Pipes have burst. Lives have been shattered. Snow and ice are blanketing the region today.
Late last night I made the decision to mobilize Mercy Chefs to help bring relief to those in the Dallas area who have been hit hard by the cold weather and storms. We are partnering with a local church and I hope to be providing meals starting on Friday.
I will have more details soon, but right now I'm asking for your help. We are mobilizing IN ADDITION to our meal box distributions that are scheduled for Oklahoma and Arkansas -- plus more distributions starting in Virginia.
Will you partner with Mercy Chefs as we mobilize to serve hot meals in Texas and also provide critical relief in neighboring states that have been hit hard by the bitter temperatures and storms? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift:
Many are in crisis. I want to do as much as possible to help right now.
Please prayerfully consider how you can partner with us to bring relief to frozen Texas, and thanks in advance for your support.

P.S. The Dallas area is currently under a winter storm warning, meaning more snow and (even worse) ice that will take down power lines and cause more outages. We are deploying to provide hot meals. Go here to help:
