“I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can,” Beyonce, a Houston native, said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle Monday.

The BeyGOOD team has headed to Houston to partner with not only Ramsus, but his not for profit corporation Bread of Life, which he founded with his wife Juanita in 1992.
