When tragedy strikes, the Eight Days of Hope community comes together to share in something greater than itself. We lean into the calling of God and are blessed to have a part in building up the Kingdom of God. It is our desire that through our ministries, we can spread restoration and new beginnings that rebuild not only structures and homes, but also the hope for each community and person recovering from unthinkable disaster.
Your group came and helped us out so much yesterday in Mandeville, Louisiana and came back today to help my neighbor with his situation. You guys are truly doing the Lord’s work, can’t thank you enough. God bless you all.

Eight Days of Hope is awesome. They are beautiful people helping so many in need. I am from Jennings, LA, and they stayed at Our Saviors church in Jennings for the hurricanes last year and can’t say enough about how amazing they are. We love you Eight Days of Hope, and we love all the awesome people that need help. May you all have a blessed day! There is light at the end of the tunnel!

How do I thank you all for taking me from a place of deep, dark despair to a feeling of indefinable hope and feeling loved and cared about? I have been thanking Our Lord mightily for sending you all my way and I know He understands my heart better than I can express. … I have been Blessed beyond any measure I could ever have imagined. With eyes closed, I can still hear the laughter of children working in my mess of a yard with utter selflessness and complete devotion to the true teachings of Jesus Christ. My 4-feet-of-Harvey-water house is turning into a home again thanks to the many, many hours of hard work so joyfully granted. Thank you.

We called Eight Days of Hope, and they came with volunteers. Eight Days of Hope Rapid Response is doing what we can’t do. This is the body of Christ working together at its best.

I kind of just put my faith into EDOH. Its almost like your own personal army. All of these angels have descended upon us, and I feel relaxed and safe. And that’s an awesome feeling to have. They are taking care of us. When you see the faith of others, it's contagious. It fills your heart. It fills your soul. They’ve been a blessing to people in many ways other than just fixing their homes. They are probably impacting people in ways that they’ll never realize.
– Howard and Rhea, Houston, Texas
Words cannot express how you feel when your home is devastated, and people come in to help you. Words cannot express it. I had no hope three days ago. I didn’t know what to do and where to go and how to fix things. And then these volunteers came. And talk about hope. Now there’s hope: hope for the future, that this home can be restored, that I can live here again. I didn’t have that hope a few days ago.

I thank God for every one of you, and I pray God would give you strength to do for others what you have done for me.
