An Opportunity to Reach out for Jesus
Brothers and Sister in Christ,
Once again, we are called to help those desperately in need of our love.
On April 17th, a terrible fertilizer plant fire and subsequent explosion killed 14 people (11 WERE FIRE FIGHTERS).
This week my wife and I have been in contact with Rev. David Holland from St. Albans Church in Waco, TX about relief efforts. As usual they are just getting started. Some have nothing left, while others have some.
St. Albans is putting together lists of families and their needs. They need just about everything, from toiletries, school supplies, and food to furniture, bedding, and water.
We are told that right now the best avenue of help is you or your organization to send gift cards from Wal-Mart or Target. They will be distributed to families in need so they can go fill their immediate needs.
PLEASE HELP! I will keep you updated as their needs change.
Send all donations to:
St. Albans Church
C/O Rev. David Holland
305 N. 30th Street
Waco, TX 76710
This is a great opportunity for all our Brotherhood Chapters that have money just sitting in the bank looking for something to do with it.
As we approach “The Feast of St. Florian” (The Patron Saint of Firefighters), please make every effort to help families in West Texas, as we learned from Sandy, “everyone needs a little help now and then”.
