Chinese Christians in the United States continue to actively join together with other Christian relief groups in setting up relief funds and praying for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Recently, the Chinese churches in Texas have mobilized their congregations to participate in the relief effort with hopes of repairing the emotional and spiritual damage that was caused by the Hurricane.

Chinese churches have opened up their facilities to provide shelter, and have also pushed forward and rented motels to provide enough housing for Katrina victims.

Moreover, Chinese Christian scholars, who have lost everything and face financial burdens have been cared for by Chinese churches in Texas.

Since the Hurricane struck the Gulf Coast last month, Christian organizations have been working by comforting Katrina victims, both physically and spiritually.

The non-denominational faith-based organization, Chinese Christian Mission (CCM), who cooperates with evangelical churches and other Christian organizations in reaching Chinese around the world, has posted on their website instructions on how Chinese Christians can donate to the relief effort.

CCM and other Chinese Christians organizations around the U.S. have actively prayed for Katrina victims, by posting on their websites the importance of praying for the victims.

Prayer requests include comforting families of loved ones who have lost everything, to a revival of the churches in the areas devastated by the storms, so that Christians can "bear witness for Christ's love in deeds."
