Convoy of Hope Disaster Relief following Sandy

“They’ll see that you take care of the poor, that you take care of poor people in trouble, Provide a warm, dry place in bad weather.” (Isaiah 25:4, The Message)  

The videos and images of children, mothers and the elderly in the aftermath of the story are shocking.  However, when I see strong men crying, it means there is shock and a sense of helplessness.  These are times when the church can show it greatest strength, allowing God to use us to be his arms and hands of love immediately.  That’s why I am grateful for a ministry that I trust and believe in, Convoy of Hope.  I’ve enjoyed the opportunities I have had working with Convoy and some of the very finest people I know work and serve in this ministry.

Convoy of Hope is a first responder when disaster strikes.  They have been commended by Presidents and community leaders and are some of the first to arrive the scene of a disaster.  Additionally they work with local volunteers who are continue to follow up with the people who are helped.

All of us want to help in a tangible way following the disaster left in the wake of Sandy’s winds, rains and storm surge.  This weekend we will be receiving a special offering for Convoy of Hope at Woodland Church during.If you’d like to donate but can’t be with us please paste the  following link into your web browser  to make a donation by credit/debit card at Woodland Church’s website.
