Samaritan’s Purse is on the ground in Perryton, Texas, after a powerful tornado ripped through the Panhandle town on Thursday, killing three people and injuring dozens more. The 8-mile path of the twister damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes and other structures, knocking out power in the region. Search and rescue efforts are still underway.

Volunteers are urgently needed to help with cleanup, as well as tarp roofs and cut up downed trees, offering tangible help in Jesus’ Name. Our host church is Victory Family Church at 2322 South Main Street in Perryton.


Please pray for the residents of Perryton as they face the rubble and work to rebuild. Ask God to strengthen them as well as our staff and volunteers.

U.S. Disaster Relief Samaritan's Purse mobilizes and equips thousands of disaster relief volunteers to provide emergency aid to U.S. victims of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In the aftermath of major storms, we often stay behind to rebuild houses for people with nowhere else to turn for help.
