As most of us know, Hurricane Ian recently tore through the Atlantic. The Category Four storm was deadly and destructive, doing massive damage across large swaths of Florida and into South Carolina. The death toll and property damage is still not fully known.
Current Missions is committed to support our partners at International Disaster Emergency Services to bring help and hope to people affected by Ian and other catastrophic weather events. The big idea is to shine the light and love of Christ to folks who find themselves in their darkest hour—missions of His mercy and grace.
In keeping with that, we are heading to Port Charlotte, Florida with a team of volunteer relief workers from Current. To be successful, we need your help. Here are a few ways you can be a part of the effort:
Travel and Serve
There is still space available on the response team. We will depart Katy on Sunday, October 23 and return on Saturday, October 29. The work will mainly consist of debris removal, muck-out, and roof tarping. Experience is great, but not required. Relatively good health and the willingness to work hard for Jesus are the only requirements.
Financial support is a major need. Your generosity can provide for travel expenses, tools and equipment, repair materials, and basic necessities for our team.
Your prayer support is the most valuable asset to our team and for the victims of the storm. Please pray for the spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional health of the storm victims—that they turn to Jesus for all their needs. Please pray for the safety and efficiency of our team and for their families which support them from home.
