Dream Center Lifts Up Los Angeles amid Historic Storms

James Lasher : Feb 9, 2024  Charisma News

In the wake of the devastating storms that have swept through California, leaving communities in need, the Dream Center's provision of emergency housing stands as a beacon of hope and compassion. As they open their doors to those affected, this act of service mirrors the teachings of Jesus, who exhorted His followers to love and serve others selflessly.

He also sets in place ministries to help those affected by life's hardships, such as the Dream Center in Los Angeles, California.

Answering the call Jesus put forth, the Dream Center, helmed by founder Matthew Barnett, has opened its doors and hit the streets to assist those being affected by the threatening weather pattern and lack proper housing.

Posting to X (formerly Twitter), Barnett sounded the alarm about the approaching weather, and that the Dream Center had emergency housing on standby for those who needed it.

A relentless storm has been unleashing torrential rain on Southern California since Sunday, shattering precipitation records and leaving residents grappling with historic levels of rainfall.

According to the National Weather Service, the two-day period from Feb. 4 to Feb. 5 became the third wettest in the history of Los Angeles. The last time such a deluge occurred was on Jan. 25 and Jan. 26, 1956, as reported by the NWS.

Sunday stood out as the wettest February day in nearly 110 years for Los Angeles, making it the third wettest day overall since records began in 1877.

"Nearly half of the average seasonal rainfall of Los Angeles has fallen in two days," noted NWS officials.

Beyond Los Angeles, several airports in the area experienced record-breaking rainfall. Los Angeles International Airport saw over two-and-a-half inches Feb. 5, surpassing the previous record set in 1978. Fox Field in Lancaster, Palmdale Airport in Palmdale, Bob Hope Airport in Burbank and Long Beach Airport also witnessed rainfall records being shattered.

The cumulative rainfall for the 2023-2024 season in downtown Los Angeles, starting from Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024, has reached 13.95 inches.

"It is also already 98 % of the normal seasonal rainfall of 14.25 inches," highlighted the National Weather Service.

In the wake of the devastating storms that have swept through California, leaving communities in need, the Dream Center's provision of emergency housing stands as a beacon of hope and compassion. As they open their doors to those affected, this act of service mirrors the teachings of Jesus, who exhorted His followers to love and serve others selflessly.

The Dream Center's response exemplifies the Christian call to be a light in the darkness, demonstrating that in times of crisis, faith compels Believers to extend a helping hand to those facing adversity. In the spirit of community and compassion, the Dream Center's commitment to providing shelter and support echoes the timeless message of love and service that Christians are called to embody in a world that needs it now more than ever.
