“There seems to be no area of mission action that requires more rapid response than during the time of disaster. The disaster comes unexpectedly and with it the opportunity for immediate ministry. If we are unprepared when it strikes and delay action, the opportunity passes with the urgent need.”

If you want to be trained to serve with Disaster Relief, or if you’re already serving and need to be re-trained, make plans to attend one of these 2015 training events!
