Serving in Northern Illinois
Helping Affected Families in the Name of Jesus!
Last Thursday evening, an EF-4 tornado hit several small communities in northern Illinois. Of the 76 homes in Fairdale, 50 of them were destroyed.
We are blessed to be partnered with Abiding Word Church in Sterling, IL in serving the affected families in Rochelle, Fairdale, and the surrounding areas. Please be praying with us for opportunities to share the love of Christ with homeowners, emergency responders, and the community as we do our part in this recovery effort.
In a split second, the pieces of a family’s life are destroyed. At moments like this, hope seems gone and God seems silent. And yet volunteers from local churches have the opportunity to show hurting families that God is still with them and will never leave them.
This is why we do what we do. This is why we believe so strongly in the local church’s role in disaster response. God has uniquely equipped the church to be the hands and feet of Christ in times of need in their own community. It is only the love of Christ and the church that can restore hope to the hurting.
What part can you play in restoring hope and faith in hurting communities?
