From Send Relief, Stories of Hope is a podcast about people who meet needs, build relationships and change lives. Every two weeks, you will hear a story about a believer or a church who looked honestly at the world around them, discovered a need and then couldn’t sit still until they’d done what God told them to do.

After the Storm
Before Hurricane Dorian slammed into the Bahamas in the fall of 2019, no one could’ve predicted that two years later, people there would still be struggling to recover. In this episode of Stories of Hope, Send Relief directors David and Jo Brown and their neighbors in the Bahamas share the horrifying things they experienced during the storm, and the beautiful things they’ve experienced since then.
I love hearing about the mission field of the US and how believers are engaging it! The stories are well done and very encouraging.
These Stories of Hope are inspiring in a time when there seems to be no good news anymore. It is encouraging to hear about volunteers all over North America who sacrifice their time and talents to help others.
