Christian Response to Disaster
From the Calgary Herald website, August 20th, 2013, quoting a volunteer who helped with the June 2013 flood clean-up in Bowness, Calgary:
“The Red Cross is great at what they do and they raise a lot of money, but organizations like Samaritan’s Purse were the ones who were organized and getting the real work done — they were amazing.”
As I write this, Samaritan’s Purse and the Rapid Response Team is deploying to Boulder, Colorado. Thank you, Samaritan’s Purse and the Rapid Response Team for all you do in the name of Jesus and for often being the first to respond.
“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
