Message About Oklahoma Disaster Response


Dear Friends,
What a few terrible days we have experienced, whether personally or by watching television. I know you all join me, when I say my heartaches for those affected by the terrible storms which have ravaged our nation's heartland. In the coming days ahead our physical help will be needed. Until that invitation is issued, there are  several ways you can help. As always prayer is always appreciated. Survivors often tell stories of how they felt surrounded by prayer during difficult times. Another way to help is by putting together relief supplies-relief kits and cleaning buckets. This UMCOR  kit link  has specific instructions for preparing these supplies. The UMCOR Relief-Supply Network  will help you find where to take or ship these supplies. You can also help by making online donations to US Disaster Response, Advance #901670 or by calling toll-free 1-800-554-8583. To make an immediate $10 donation text RESPONSE to 80888. Your donations matter!

Please let the those in your conference know of these ways to help all those in need.    Thank you.

Blessings,

South Central Jurisdiction Volunteers in Mission, UMC
