Faith is what we cling to for every day that we are able to continue to serve long term in helping disaster survivors recover.

Spring 2015 disaster was a low attention disaster generating minimal donations to help families recover.  111 tornadoes and over 50 inches of rain impacted 66 of the state’s 77 counties.  Grants have made the way for our ministry to continue to serve those impacted now two and half years out.  Another grant just received will make it possible for us to continue to serve through July 2018.  We remain faithful that God will provide a way for all those in need to be served.  We remain faithful that God will continue to send volunteers needed to be His hands and feet.

Hope is what we provide families impacted by disaster that wait for volunteers to help make needed repairs down the long road of recovery.

Spring 2015 disaster recovery continues to happen in Oklahoma.  With almost 200 families still in need of critical home repairs our need for volunteers continues to be great.  Hope is provided to a disaster survivor when we tell them volunteers are still coming.  Hope for a better future is what volunteers leave a disaster survivor with following completed home repairs.

Love is what we receive from volunteers that continue to serve in long term recovery.

As we work alongside numerous volunteers that continue to serve we witness and experience the love that God has showered on them to pass on to all those they meet while serving.  Disaster survivors feel that love when smiles, laughter, joyful tears, fellowship, and hard work are poured into their lives.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
