Clear Lake UMC Member's Carpentry Skills Help Rebuild
John Lem was on vacation in Colorado when Harvey struck. He and his wife, Sandra, decided to wait out the storm. Their house in Clear Lake did not flood, but Lem knew that the greater Houston area was in deep water.
Experience with past floods in the city gave him an idea of what to expect. As soon as they got back to Houston, he went to work, helping people repair their homes. “Until you see it firsthand, it’s difficult to understand the magnitude,” he said. “I just had a calling. I had to do something.”
Ever since his return, he’s been spending about four days a week helping others rebuild.
