Tornado Update as of April 26, 2011

I want to keep this in front of you to remember to pray and give. But I have another reason...I want you to be open to going.

It's always too late to train when disaster strikes. Christ-followers should be among the first to go to help those in crisis. We must prepare to do that. So what am I asking you to do?

* Pray for those responding in the name of Christ. Pray God would give you a heart that is willing to go should he call you to.

* Give as God leads you through your church or directly through a Christ-centered ministry.

* Get trained. Go through whatever ministry or non-profit you want to. But get trained. The time will come when you will want to go. You can't get the credentials and training you need then. It's too late.
