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.

Thanks for helping us to help them!

“As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”” (2 Corinthians 9:9, NLT)
