To my Region 5 NSBE Professionals Family,

During the week of August 24, 2017, our NSBE families in southeast Texas and in Louisiana were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. I am sure I don’t have to tell you about the damage from the aftermath a storm of this magnitude can and has brought, but what I can tell you is that your NSBE Region 5 family is here for you. I have been actively praying for those impacted and I know that God will see you through. I remind you during this time to stay focused on what is important and be thankful for what you have.

Over the past week, I have seen the beauty of what can come from an event like this. I have seen members helping their neighbors with recovery, I have seen members taking people into their homes, I have seen members volunteering and coming together to donate money and items, I have seen chapters begin relief efforts for their members and it makes me so proud to call you my family. I have also seen the blessings and protection of God over a lot of our members and how we are truly blessed. I encourage you no matter how impacted you may be by recent events to find something to Praise God for during these times; I know I have plenty to count as blessings! We will bounce back, with God nothing is impossible.

Below you will find a link to make a monetary donation to our NSBE Region 5 family and an application for our NSBE family to apply for need as we begin to rebuild our families and our homes. These efforts will not be achieved overnight so keep faith as we will be here if you need us. If you need anyone to talk to and provide prayer and encouragement please don’t hesitate to reach out as well, your entire Region 5 board is here for you. I am praying for all of us and I will leave you with some words of encouragement from the word of God that I chose to lean on:

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

May God Bless us all,

Mikala Windham
