MARCH 2021 NEWSLETTER
Activities have resumed at the MNA Disaster Response Warehouse in Rome. This month we hosted a track loader training (upper left), hosted guests from Evangel PCA in Alabaster AL (upper right), Camp Winshape-Georgia Tech (lower left), and PCA RV Ministry (lower right).

Quick Notes

  • Would you like to serve at the warehouse by helping to keep the lawn looking good? We are looking for a few people that would be willing to volunteer to help keep the lawn maintained by mowing and trimming the grass. If you are interested in learning more, contact Mike. Lawn care not your thing? Let's talk about how you can serve.
  • We are scheduled to be in south Alabama on Sunday, May 16 to speak at a church. If you are in south Alabama and would like to have a conversation about the ministry please let us know. We'd be happy to gather with folks in the days leading up to the 16th. Just reach out to Mike to arrange a meeting.
  • A number of people have inquired about skid steer loader training. If you are interested in participating in a training session, please email Mike.

Ways to Serve
by Mike Kennamer

The most popular training session I do is entitled, "14 Ways to Get Involved in Disaster Response Ministry" (recently expanded to 16 ways). Some of these ways, such as going to disaster sites, is obvious. Others, however, are not quite as apparent. Over the next few months I'll talk about each one and encourage you to consider getting involved in whatever way(s) you are led.

Last month we started with the obvious, Go to Disaster Sites to Serve. This month we will talk about serving at home.

Stay and Serve

While we periodically have widespread disasters, small disasters occur every day in our own neighborhoods.

  • A tree falls on a widow's roof.
  • An elderly couple runs out of firewood to heat their home.
  • A disabled veteran needs a wheelchair ramp.

These are not newsworthy events. You won't hear about them on the six-o'clock news. The Weather Channel won't show up. But God's people can shop up and proclaim Christ loudly and boldly through quiet acts of mercy and service. And to that widow, or elderly couple, or veteran their disaster is just as overwhelming to them as Hurricane Katrina was to those who were impacted by it.

Why get involved in disaster response? Because when you prepare to respond to disasters you can apply those skills to help people every day in your own neighborhood.

Want to learn more about how to minister in your own community? Contact me and let's discuss.
