Well, Rob just left for Minot, North Dakota to help out with flood relief with Touch Global and Trinity Church in Minot. We have been so blessed to have Rob available to go to help out in these crisis areas. The flood waters have finally gone down and Minot is now in the clean up stage of their recovery.
How would it feel if 25% of the families in your church had major flooding in their homes making their home uninhabitable for several weeks to several months? Trinity Church in Minot is that church. The Sr. Pastor’s home is one of the homes that was flooded. 11,000 homes were flooded in Minot. Trinity church has started a grass roots effort to help their body and their neighbors recover from this devastating flood. As I read their blog last night I was amazed at how the body of Christ has come together to help folks gut their homes, give advise on how to dry out basements and offered to feed the teams that are coming in to help out.
Not only are there 11,000 homes affected but very few of these families have left the Minot area. That means that family and friends are offering housing to most of these families. This entire community has in some way been affected by this flood. Whether they are opening their home to house a family, your home was flooded and you are helping your neighbor gut his house or you are cooking food for volunteers that are showing up out of the blue, they are affected.
The prayer right now is for teams to go to Minot to help in this effort. Please consider taking some time off of work to go to Minot for a week to help. They have housing available for volunteers and are providing at least one meal a day to the volunteers. A new shower house was just built to accommodate the harvest of workers. Shoot me an email if you are interested in serving in Minot at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Pray also for safety for Rob and others as they drive to Minot and as they work in the homes to help people recover. Pray for lives to be changed due to this flood and that people can see the hands and feet of Jesus right in front of their eyes.
