Members of the Highland Lakes Crisis Network coordinated their third house blessing on Sept. 17 for October 2018 flood survivors with the most recent being Patty and Charles Hundley, who live on Lakeshore Drive in Marble Falls. HLCN has done several more since as well as provided other flood recovery assistance with the assistance of Catholic Charities, United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), St. John's Catholic Church, Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), Burnet County Flood Relief Fund, Community Resource Center, First Baptist Church of Marble Falls and First Baptist Church of Kingsland.

This makes five Home Blessings and one Vehicle Blessing we have completed in the last couple of months.

The blessing, I think, was provided as much to us as it was to the survivors. . . .
