Greetings as we all look forward to another exciting year of men's ministry!
NATIONAL CALL FOR DISASTER RELIEF RESPONSE
As we previously announced, Eastern Nebraska and western Iowa have experienced multiple floods the last few months form the Missouri River and its tributaries. At least 2,000 homes have been affected.
At the request of the American Baptist Churches of Nebraska and its regional ABMen ministry, I am issuing a national call to assist with recovery from flooding in the Midwest.
Disaster Relief teams and volunteers are needed for muck out and for rebuild. Volunteers may respond for any portion of the two week periods for which they are available.
Churches in the Fremont and Valley, Nebraska areas will provide the necessary support for meals, sleeping and showers. Cots are available but you must bring your own sleeping bag, linens, towels, pillow etc.
Mud out tools will be available but if you want to bring a personal tool bag be sure your tools are marked.
Please coordinate your available dates, number of volunteers in your group and general skill levels with the ABMen National Disaster Relief Coordinator.

- Green Lake Conference Center (September 2019)
