Dear Supporter of Eight Days of Hope,

THANK YOU for your prayers and financial support of Eight Days of Hope!

What an amazing year it has been! Eight Days of Hope was meant to be a one-time visit with only a handful of people to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. God has allowed this ministry to blossom into so much more! On sixteen different occasions, thousands of volunteers have ministered to people's needs and helped them put their lives back in order after Hurricane Katrina, Rita, Irene, Isaac, Matthew, Harvey, Florence and Michael. We also have helped the communities of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Nashville, Tennessee to help rebuild after flooding and have worked in Alabama and Mississippi to help those affected after devastation tornadoes.

In 2015, we launched a rapid response arm of the ministry and have seen God open the door for us to visit twenty-two different communities within days of a disaster. In 2018, our Rapid Response team served in New Bern, NC for over six weeks after Hurricane Florence and in Panama City, Florida for seven weeks, following Hurricane Michael. Thousands volunteered and helped tarp roofs, gut homes, cut trees and bring hope to those whose worlds have been turned upside down. Eight Days of Hope has one goal and that is to love and serve the brokenhearted in the name of Jesus!

In 2018, Eight Days of Hope led over 8,000 volunteers throughout the year and served over 960 families in SE Houston to rebuild their homes after Hurricane Harvey. We accomplished about $14.5 million dollars of work. These volunteers were truly the hands and feet of Jesus! It was by far the largest volunteer effort ever in the United States.

Some of the highlights from our Eight Days of Hope and Rapid Response trips include:

  • We have remodeled, refurbished or rebuilt 2,916 homes and served an additional 2,270 families within 72 hours of a disaster
  • 33,829 volunteers have participated in these relief efforts
  • Dozens of churches have been rebuilt and multiple community projects completed
  • $47.1 million dollars of labor has been accomplished through Eight Days of Hope

Volunteers from 50 states and eleven different countries have shown up to serve with us! In fact, over 1.1 million man-hours have been worked during these events!

Today, we are excited to present to you an opportunity to help us complete our 60,000 square foot National Headquarters and Training Facility in Tupelo, Mississippi. We envision this facility will help us train hundreds of leaders every year, so we can expand our touch for Jesus! We have raised dollars specifically for this project but as of today, we are $500,000 short of completing it.
