The City of Houston Housing & Community Development Facebook page has focused its posts over the last few day on the inspiring help of LDS Missionaries and members following the recent severe storm. In a series of 3 posts, the city page shared 100 photos, with most of them featuring our elders and sisters dressed in the unmistakable high-fashion of a bright yellow Mormon Helping Hands t-shirt and a black missionary name-tag.

In order to plan continuing assistance, missionaries and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met this weekend with Houston Mayor Annise Parker and City Housing and Community Development Department (HCDD) Director Neal Rackleff.

Other inter-faith ministries are interested in joining the relief initiative, and will be meeting with HCDD leaders today.

  1. Neal Rackleff (you dropped the last “f” in his name) is also LDS. He’s worked in that position for the last 4 years and might still be serving on the high council for the Spring Stake. Not to diminish the wonderful missionaries who serve, but I’m sure that helped.
